I collected the golliwogs too! - very un-PC now of course - but my favourite had a guitar.
We used to enjoy a rather disgusting variety of tinned 'treats' at Christmas when I was a kid.
These included large tins of fruit juice (we never had fresh), tinned strawberries and raspberries and tinned meat - notably ham and chicken which both came encased in a horrible aspic (or other) jelly.
I can taste them all now - strangeley very different to the fresh versions and not very pleasant textures. But I'd probably be transported back to Christmas circa 1967 if I ate them - so I guess I'd secretly enjoy eating them - just the once.
