Sweet Tooth Fruit Flavour Drops
In 1980 Whizzer and Chips teamed up with Trebor to give away the Sweet Tooth Fruit Flavour drops you see above. A packet was presented as a free gift to the readers with issue dated 4th October 1980, and was also avaliable to buy in the shops.
The wrappers came with an added bonus - a comic strip on the inside. There were twenty to collect in total, each one a different Sweet Tooth adventure illustrated by Trevor Metcalfe.
I am trying to collect scans/photos/images of all twenty wrappers. So far I've found two, no. 3 and no. 11, but there's still 18 to go. If you have any of the others (or perhaps a clearer picture of no 3) please don't hesitate to get in touch, either by commenting or by emailing me:
