Want to recapture your youth? Share these treat with your grandchildren? Well, some of these delicious sweets are still available today, and we've listed some of the places that you can buy them from. Ruislip Woods, in the old county of Middlesex (now the London Borough of Hillingdon), the largest expanse of traditional oak standard over hornbeam coppice woodland, is a haven for grey squirrels to bark strip the hornbeam poles. From the 1960s to the 1980s, the Ruislip Woods complex was closed to the public, woodland by woodland, once per year for 14 days, to allow a highly organised team of guns to undertake grey squirrel control. During the 1980s, the council was politically split and, after endless debate, squirrel control was abandoned and has never resumed. Organised, countrywide grey squirrel control in urban areas has about the same probability for success as finding a single, sustainable vaccine for long-term protection against COVID-19. A quarter of sweets weighs 113g in new money was an easy way to weigh out treats on the old fashioned scales which was the unit of measurements they used.

There will be many people who grew-up during the 1960s or 70s, who will have fond memories of the original Treets chocolate sweets. They launched in the 1960s and were manufactured by Mars Inc. There were three varieties; Peanut, Toffee and Chocolate. Treets were discontinued in 1988, but made a brief return to British, French and German stores in 2009 as a limited edition. 2017 RelaunchLoads of local sweet delivery services are popping up and most are run from home and do not last very long. We are serious about what we do and certainly not a here today gone tomorrow operation like many companies we have seen spring up. Online confectionary is our business and getting candy delivered to your door is what we do. Generations of children have been in love with Love Hearts ever since – a sculpture of a Love Heart was placed in the Millennium Dome as it was seen as such an icon of the 20th Century. Grey squirrels which have an ambidextrous capability demonstrate superior mental performance (picture credit: Nicholas Mabbett).

Grey squirrels will eat the eggs and nestlings of garden birds, but, to be fair, so do native red squirrels. Most damage in gardens is to bird feeders, but this is easily avoided by erecting dedicated squirrel feeders at the same time. It costs a fortune in peanuts, but what the hell. With COVID-19 restrictions, I can’t travel to do articles on grey squirrels stripping bark from hornbeam coppice in rural Hertfordshire, so I might as well get some enjoyment watching them crunch and munch Arachis hypogea in my suburban garden. Besides, I might be giving a leg-up to groundnut growers in Africa.The fluted (folded) nature of the hornbeam main stem means grey squirrels fail to completely ring-bark the tree and thus offers some protection against a terminal outcome for the tree. A quarter of a pound or a half pound measure was the most typical requests for any shop keeper and this was the standard method of weighing out your tasty treats. You might even still see this in your local fruit and veg markets. Most stores phased out the old fashioned imperial system in the late 90s when it changed to metric (grams and kilos). With the change metric, the death of aquarterof sweets began as sweets were now sold per 100g weigh outs instead.
