    Default Shops back then.

    Do you remember when your local shops,looked like this? Or the special promotions,they'd put on in the big stores?

    You can still buy nimble and since I'm one of the large posters I buy it as well as diet coke with lots of unhealthy foods

    Picture #4 is interesting because of 'kake brand'. I remember the furore about shops like Kwik Save purposely using misspellings in that it would be a bad influence on kids. I didn't realise that the trend had started earlier than that. There's probably well more than kake brand and earlier too.

    I wonder what a starch enriched loaf tastes like [before they reduced it?] Probably like eating grandad's old shirt?
