The Lucky toffees cost 3d each, and if you were 'lucky' the one you bought had a sixpence in the bottom of the toffee. I don't think they had coloured sprinkles on top - maybe coconut, but they were in little patty pans like these. Oooh! They were yummy - even if you didn't get the 6d!
Other favourite lollies - but strangely I only remember really buying them from the shop near Wattle Park in Melbourne (near Nan's house) - were Big Boss chocloate cigars and Fags. Fags are now called Fads! I must admit we used to pretend to smoke them - even though no-one in the family was a smoker.

And while I'm on treats - something else I loved when I was growing up was a Lime Spider! Nowadays they are usually just not the same - they should be made with lime flavouring, lemonade, and icecream. But today they are usually made with lime flavoured softdrink and icecream, and they are just NOT the same.
