I will never forget junior school breaktime in the late 1950’s eating a packet of Potato Puffs, they were just amazing little bundles of potato and air and one of the first snacks to be ‘ready salted’. Previously, the inferior ‘Crisps’ had a little blue twisted bag of ‘serve yourself’ salt inside.
If you posted the tokens from the back of the packet of Potato Puffs to Burtons you got a prize back, but I can’t remember what it was – not that I am old or anything!!
My favourite memory of youth is spending all day down the woods nearby, building Dens, climbing trees, riding tracker bikes, and playing football. We spent all day till teatime amusing ourselves with innocent fun.
No one was worried about us, it was an age where children were allowed to develop as children, without any kind of peer pressure over the clothes anyone wore etc, an age of pure innocence where everyone was seen as equal.
Aged 7 or 8 taking the 6d weekly pocket money to the shops (on my bike but probably with friends. However, on our own) to buy sweets which included fruit salad, black jacks, aniseed balls and bubble gum (Bazooka Joe). The latter was frowned on at home!
