The Grenoside Nbsp Post Office - a Memory of Grenoside.

I lived in Grenoside between 1957 and 1965 and I remember the post office offering children some wonderful goodies. We used to buy bags of sherbert , all colours and red was my favorite.  We would lick our forefingers and dip into the lucious powder sucking off what stuck to our fingers as we pulled them out of the bag. I am drooling already as I recall the yummy taste and laughing as I recall the funny coloured fingers we would end up with!  Other delicacies included Penny Arrow Bars, Penny Jacks, Love Hearts, Spangles just to name a few. Oh what fun we used to have choosing what we would have, such simple acts but so much fun.
