Rowntrees Tooty Frooties

Chewy and fruity sweets that were with us through the sixties and seventiesIn fact it was in 1963 Tooty Frooties came to the tuck shops and newsagent counters. These came from John Mackintosh & Sons Ltd who become Rowntree Mackintosh Ltd. They would appear next to sticks of nougat and liquorice strips.
Personally if i needed a sweet fix i would choose Spangles. They contained a variety of translucent fruity flavours and lasted a lot longer.

So does anyone else remember these sweets?

  1. and not forgetting their cousins "Tooty Minties" which came in toothpaste type colours.

    If you put them in the freezer for a while, they'd lose their chewy consistency and shatter in your mouth on the first bite.
