Sherbet things with a swizzlestick. 
DoubleDips?, I suspect, is what you're thinking of. Cherry and Orange sherbets.

Things with real names, like OpalFruits? and Marathons.

Strawberry bootlaces.
Also fizzy cola bootlaces which were impossibly addictive.

Chocolate mice, and buttons.  Preferably buttons with HundredsAndThousands? on top.
Oh yes!  And the only nice liquorice allsort, the blue / pink bobbly one, that you could buy just on its own by the quarter.

The school vending machine... my teeth will never forget it (he says with double digits of fillings).
Bad enough having fillings in your teeth. Fillings in your fingers...
Cherry drops, and Boost, and Double Decker.  Except you can still buy all of them today, so does that count as nostalgia or not?  :-/

[Garbled has heard the theory that as children develop into adults, there are changes to your tastebuds, resulting in liking more savoury and less sweet food. Therefore sweets cannot taste as good due to deterioration of taste. Comments?

Possibly as an 'in general' thing, but I'd have to say from personal experience that this is just bobbins.
Likewise. "As you get older, you start saving your money to buy music / computer equipment / books / whatever rather than spending it on sweets on the way home from school" seems far closer to the truth.
MikeJeggo's experience is that, although he still likes sweet things, his appreciation for the savoury has grown.  This leaves him more of a dilemna!

How about those sweety necklaces that doubled as sweet catapults (bite sweet in two, place on string, and flick) - Minutes of fun -- Garbled

Curly whirlies! --Tsunami (who still hasn't lost his sweet tooth, tho at this rate, it will fall out soon....)
