How old are our favourite childhood sweets?

Take a click down memory lane

Percy Pig turns 21 this week and while we doubt he's out necking Tequila with 20 of his mates, it's still a momentous occasion for the pink gelatine porker.

Percy seems to have grown up in a flash, but he's a mere whippersnapper compared to other famous sweet brands. Take Love Hearts, whose 60th birthday is just around the corner or Sherbet Fountain, the grandpa of the confectionery industry at 88 years old.

In celebration of Percy's coming of age, we explore the birthdays of some of our other favourite childhood sweets - come take a look by clicking on an image in the gallery below:
