BLOBS! a DYR exclusive!

Anyone who was a child in the early Seventies must remember these beauties.
Trebor's Blobs. A boiled candy with a chewy centre.
Must have been my favorite sweets at the time along with Spangles.
What made them so good was the zany flavours used...
Toffee Apple,Fizzy Cider,Fizzy Cola,Raspberry & Sherbet,Strawberry & Cream and by far the best..Apple,Banana & Pear!
I can even remember sending off wrappers for two inflatable dolls of Patch and the Blob Monster.
Surely a candidate for revival? See 1976 advert here

    Toffee Apple Blobs were my favourite sweet as a child, I've never forgotten them, they were divine, they should be brought back to the shelves!!

    I looked for hours on the internet to find any mention of Blobs - thank you for your blog!!!! Strawberry and Cream Blobs were my favourite, and the Toffee Apples Blobs too. I remember the Blob Monster! When they first came out I spent most of my pocket money on them at the tuck shop in school - they were soooo popular - why did they disappear? I think there should be a campaign to bring them back!!

    My favourite was toffee and apple, would never forget them even though a few grains of sand have passed through the time of my life, lets bring them back!!!!!

    I used to eat blobs like they were going out of fashion! My favourite flavour was Toffee Apple. Now here's an odd thing - Jack Daniel's 'Honey' smells, and tastes EXACTLY the same. This makes me very happy indeed.

    Loved Trebor Blobs. They were quite a revolutionary sweet at the time- lots of zany flavours.
