    Damn I should have known that....
    For years I had issues if I was writing the words "go" and "to" next to eachother in a sentance - I'd give directions in BASIC speak!

    I'm young enough to know what MMPR and Captain Planet as well as still being freaked out by being called MR <Lastname> as it makes me sound old.

    I remember when Milky Way tasted like Flytes (which I dont think are sold anymore now either!)
    I also remember REAL Ready Salted Squares made by Smiths (often with free glass inside), and Tubes and Loops (a cross between Squares and Hoola Hoops!)

    MMPR rocked - Green Ranger all the way... and then White a bit later!
