[Food] You go into a newsagent to buy...

If you're in a newsagent, then you have to take the opportunity to buy things that only they have through their 'Goodnight Sweetheart' portal back to the 70s/80s*.

This means anything from Bobbys, Scampi Fries, Spicy Nik Naks or Fish and Chips biscuits.
Accompany with a can of Shandy Bass, Dandelion & Burdock, Barrs Cream Soda or a generic brand milk shake in a plastic bottle.
Chocolate would be Cadbury's Snack, Bournville's Rum & Raisin, Dairy Milk Crunch or the soon to be gone Caramac: - Basically anything you could have found in a vending machine stuck to a train station wall.

Add in a single samosa in a plastic bag out of the fridge cabinet and you're living the dream.

* - Newsagents and ESK - Over twenty years into this millenium and I managed to find Goblin Steak Puddings and cardboard boxes of Poppets in ESK! I keep returning, but haven't found 'Cremola Foam' or 'Rise and Shine'.

Brannigans roast beef and mustard (if still available), Double Decker, drink wise been in Asia too long so milk tea / cold coffee / local energy drink or if in UK and can’t get those maybe something weird like tizer or lilt
Used to love Brannigans, a proper pub crisp

Some FANTASTIC suggestions on here and many threesomes that I'd like be all over.

Does a three-pack (or maybe even a sleeve of 10) of Jaffa cakes class as a 'chocolate bar'? I doubt it, so I'd choose: Walkers Sensations' lime and corriander chutney poppadoms, a Spira and blackcurrent tango*

*which gives me the excuse to post this beauty:

Whatever chocolate bar the homeless person outside fancies (I don't have a sweet tooth)

1 packet of crisps, 1 chocolate bar and 1 soft drink.

What are you choosing?
To buy the shop - I discover the prices are grossly inflated for one Diet Coke, one orange Club and one packet of plain crisps, it would be a sustainable solution to my snack habits 😐
