    1. That is actually the thing I had in mind. Pineapple chunks is ringing a bell too...were they wee square things. And what happened to Japanese something or other wee cube things. Nostalgia is not what it used to be...

  8. Ach who needs those who continually crave GIO notoriety anyhow .. keep it here in the real world and not in the sickly "sweet" feelgood Radio Scotland. People are starving in the world and they continually keep referencing food!
