What I did like, again in my childhood years, was the big dessertspoon full of malt, that was really yummy! I was in hospital with pneumonia when I was three and I clearly remember a nurse giving me this huge spoonful of malt every day after breakfast for three weeks, it was lovely
Oh No! Mags. I hated that Virol malt stuff. My mother used to line us four children up, to give us a spoonful of cod iver oil first, then the orange juice, then the Virol. I hated it, so she used to pay me to take it.
It was a nice little earner!

Re: Treacle and Golden Syrup

As a child, syrup was in the cupboards for sponge puddings - yum

I remember mum going through a phase of eating a spoonful of black molasses every day, for her hair I think she said it was for. Is that the same as treacle?

Art that's so familiar with the cod liver oil and orange juice. Thankfully not the malt. But I'd have a whole tablespoon of cod liver oil eurgh! The fresh orange juice was nice though.
