Rock 'N' Roll Series

Mars introduced Spangles in 1948, becoming one of the swinging flavours of the 1950s and 1960s

Spangles : Small tubes of individually wrapped sweets, they were available in various flavours - blackcurrant, strawberry, barley sugar, Old English (whatever were those supposed to taste like?) and a mixed fruit pack which for years contained one in a white wrapper covered in question marks which was the "Mystery flavour". Eventually the question marks were replaced by little cocktail glasses, but I've never yet had a cocktail that tasted like a Spangle.
