The Old English Spangles tube contained traditional English flavours such as liquorice, mint humbug (sweet)s, cough candy, butterscotch and pear drops. One of the flavours was an opaque mustard yellow colour, and one was striped.    The sweets' individual wrappers were striped, distinguishing them from regular Spangles. The tube was black, white and purple, and designed for a more mature and specific clientele than the regular variety.
