7. Dina Sour Eggs.

The Dina Sour Egg had variation – it would change flavours and colours based on how long you sucked, and in the centre was a refreshing burst of sweet, sugary powder.

9. Chu Bops.

Record album shaped bubblegum packaged in full-colour miniature LP sleeves popular at the time. Included lyrics to one of the album tracks so you could sing your favourite song while chewing a big wad of gum.

10. Cherry Clans.

These belong to the lemon heads and Alexander the Grape family, but deserve special mention because they are the only ones no longer available. The racist, stereotypical Chinese caricature depicted on the front of the box wasn’t politically correct enough for the 90’s.
