When I see that fan I always think its somebody looking out of the window.


Comment by Alan (on Vancouver Island) on 23rd March 2017 at 02:59
Uncle Joe's Mint balls ! Do you know that we can buy those in Canada ?


Comment by Linda Massa on 23rd March 2017 at 05:15
Used to work next door and the smells when Uncle Joe's were being made - can smell them now.


Comment by walt(north yorks) on 23rd March 2017 at 07:37
A friend of mine who lives in Australia can buy Uncle Joe's there but says they are expensive. Here in Nth Yorkshire we can buy them in lots of different shops and I frequently do, there great !!! best in all the land !!!.


Comment by Gary Leece on 23rd March 2017 at 08:33
Wherever a Wiganer is, either in the Uk or the world, a tin of Uncle Joe's and you are home!


Comment by Daisy on 23rd March 2017 at 08:36
I used to walk pass here every morning going to all saints school , I can still remember the lovely smell of the mint balls being made , 60 years ago


Comment by irene roberts on 23rd March 2017 at 10:06
My son and daughter-in-law saw then in a store in San Francisco.


Comment by maggie on 23rd March 2017 at 10:40
We used to be able to buy them here in Bath, but o longer. We do use the Net & have plenty that we ordered & enjoy - very much.


Comment by Cyril on 23rd March 2017 at 12:14
The aroma emanating from there may smell nice, but the mint balls aren't, I find them to be awful! I'd rather have a Fishermans Friend.

Mick, who would you think it would be looking out of the window with a metal head, Tin Lizzie or Brassneck maybe.


Comment by Veronica on 23rd March 2017 at 13:09
My word ....Tin Lizzie! That's struck a cord I'd forgotten all about her! She was in one of the comics but I can't remember which! Brassneck I don't know who that was. Uncle Joe you could never forget him!


Comment by Veronica B on 23rd March 2017 at 13:57
Chord not cord!


Comment by Bod on 23rd March 2017 at 15:14
As local comedian Harry pemberton used to say,who has the cleanest balls in the world,he would then shout out uncle joes cos were always sucking them (apologise to to everyone) but it was funny at the time.


Comment by Janette R on 23rd March 2017 at 15:59
Agree with Cyril, smell nice when being made but don't like them. Seen them in America but went for a dark chocolate milky way instead !


Comment by Maurice on 23rd March 2017 at 16:55
They don't taste the same to me,quite a lot sweeter,they seemed better when they were sold loose,with no paper wrapping.


Comment by Cyril on 23rd March 2017 at 19:45
Veronica, Tin Lizzie was in The Dandy, much later Brassneck a mechanical robot, as was Lizzie, appeared in The Dandy, I seem to remember he was dressed as a schoolboy.


Comment by DTease on 23rd March 2017 at 21:06
They'll never taste the same to me either Maurice, not after Bod's comment earlier.


Comment by Veronica on 23rd March 2017 at 21:14
Just been down Memory Lane Cyril and looked up Tin Lizzie and Brassribs the butler in a 1957 Dandy! It was great -it all came flooding back- the wonders of technology! All that violence with a sledge hammer!!!
