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.

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:
