    Used them as kids…..we used to call it a “faffer” ‘cause of the sound they made…..not sure, as kids, we should’ve been handling the bulk poison for refilling though…….could explain the horn growing out of my forehead……..

    And “Check em Quick “ throat lozenges.
    A ridiculously strong aniseed micro dot that came in a white plastic tube…..
    I remember giving one to my younger brother at a swimming carnival and he projectile vomited all over the tiers below us……vivid memories.
    I seem to recall that the label had a nurse on it ?

    Similar image but I remember the label as being a light orange/yellow and they were in a plastic tube, not a cardboard one.

    ……and the tv ad with the new Dollar character singing,
    “In come the dollars, in come the cents…..to replace the pounds, the shillings and the pence…..”
    Crazy how some jingles stick in your mind.
