Dip Dabs - An absolute classic if you grew up in Blighty in the 70s and 80s! A sachet full of fluffy white zingy sherbet with that unmistakable red juicy lolly stuck in the middle. I don`t know about you, but I could never resist bypassing the lolly and pouring a load of the fizzy sherbet into my mouth - . how uncouth (but how delicious!). Seeing the packet, which has only been modified slightly (why DO they do that?), instantly takes me back. Oh the simple joys of a Dip Dab!
