One for the nostalgia fans – as you can buy the last “official” bag of pic ‘n mix ever sold in a Woolworths, and the funds raised will go to a charity aimed at helping retail workers.
It is (allegedly) quite authentic, with a note from the administrators confirming that it was indeed the very last bag sold by the firm.
More over on eBay (where else?)
I presume the sweets will go off eventually, so you will be left with a sugar coated bag and a certificate.
Maybe someone somewhat richers than I am could buy it and donate it to the excellent Museum of Brands?
Hat tip to Sam.
SUPPORT THIS WEBSITE
This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.
