I must be merging the decades, some of those things applied to me in the 70's/80's ie longing for a 3 stripe adidas tracksuit and Impulse, there used to be a really nice Oriental one you can't buy anymore, Black Jacks were definitely 1970 for me, we used to eat them at school so we could stick a black tongue out at the teacher.  roflmao

Oh happy happy days...For me its 1,5,6,7,8,10,12,13,14,16,17,18,19,21,22,26,28,29,30,31,32,34,36,39.40.41.42.45.47.49.56.57.60.61.64.65.66 and 67 phew. guess I was a proper 90s kid! I saw a picture of mr motivator yesterday sporting an attractive lycra number attractively patterned in illuminous citrus fruits. i think thats what happened to him. Fruit salads were amazing compared to the misery of blackjacks and lastly that teletubbies baby made me want to stick drawing pins in my eyes. in fact the entire program did. ok rant over now ;-)
