Part one: the 50-cent Mixture.
A white paper bag with treats inside: twisted or sometimes stapled at the top. My Kiwi grandmother called them 'lol-lols', kids at school called them 'lollies', my British grandmother called them 'sweets'.
The dairy near the bus stop had stickers and bubble gum in their bags. And sometimes you got sherbet with a little straw, or tattoos.
Yesterday, we got one set of false teeth, two jubes, a milk bottle, pebble, marshmallow, blackcurrant and a chocolate heart.
