Fags Lollies

Whatever happened to Fags, Razzes, Choo Choo Bars and other treats from childhood?

Everyone remembers their first illicit puff of a cigarette (usually behind the shelter shed),  but for generations of young Australians this giddy thrill didn’t involve tobacco. Instead, the musk- flavoured confection Fags was the brand of choice for aspiring young hipsters. “You weren’t cool unless you had a box of Fags in your pocket”.

I remember sitting in front of the telly “smoking” these, while mum smoked her real cigarettes. I think they were eventually outlawed as they were thought to encourage smoking. Can’t argue with that!
