Simpkins Travel Sweets

Are you familiar with Simpkins Travel Sweets?

I saw some at the shops the other day. They brought me down memory lane. When I was growing in Malaysia, my grandma bought and shared them with us. It was a novelty – we didn’t buy many imported goods. We didn’t have much money to spare so it was a real treat. I had a warm fuzzy feeling seeing the sweets and remembering grandma, and I ended up buying a tin of sweets for myself.

I've never heard of Simpkins Travel Sweets and wonder if they are a little like Life Savers (without the hole in the middle).
