HOLD THE FRONT page and sell your grandma. The last bag of Woolworths pic'n'mix is being auctioned on eBay. Deloitte, Woolworths' administrators, have officially certified the bag of sweets as the last one. "The Pic N Mix bag contains the usual favourites: fizzy cola bottles, rhubarb & custards, strawberry bon bons, turkish delight, white mice, pineapple cubes, and many many more... 800g of delicious nostalgia!" With 20 hours to go on the listing, the auction has attracted 70 bids, raising the price to over £360.00. Proceeds go to charity.
Woolworths, the department store chain, closed its doors earlier this year after 130 years of trading. (And no, I didn't bid).
