Victory V

Yesterday, I decided to stop using food products containing Aspartame, which meant giving up my 15 year old addiction to nicotine lozenges. So now, when I feel a bit tetchy, I pop in a Victory V. Imagine my dismay when I read the list of ingredients, sadly, Victory V no longer contains chloroform and ether. I bet those meddling killjoys in Brussels had something to do with it.

Symptoms of  Aspartame poisoning

  1. The bastards! My granddad use to love a Victory V. He also used to find the face I pulled when I had one of Grampy's sweets very bloody amusing. Still, after eating them from the age of five, I developed a taste for them, though I still think Satan invented them. Or was it someone in Lancashire?xx

    1. When I was helping my mother move house a few months ago, I found half a packet of Victory V in one of her old handbags, they must have been in there since the 70s, no best before dates back then. I had one and the memories came flooding back, it was like sucking on a handful of old copper coins, the roof of my mouth felt it was coated in sulphur, my eyes started to pulsate as if Giant Haystack was trying to force sausage meat behind my eyes, when my brain finally caught up with my eyes, I found myself in a kaleidoscope of loveliness. I'm quite fond of Victory V of yore but they have taken the soul out of them now. Do you remember Nipets and Liquorice Imps in their little tin boxes?

  2. When I saw the Victory V pix, my first thought was that they looked like bars of soap from rationing days of World War II. Sorry.

  4. Strange stuff. Looks like something you'd buy on an East European flying market, wash down with Vodka, and the rest is history ...
