My parents owned a sweetshop and I remember those sweet coupons well.  I think it must have been once a month that we had to sit round a table and count the wretched things and tie them into bundles.  Mum had to deliver them to an official office and the value of the coupons that she handed in was calculated and that then was how much confectionery we were able to purchase to replenish the shop shelves.
On about the day sweets were derationed I remember that we sold out of every piece of confectionery in the shop.

Editor's Note:  Thanks for that Noreen.  Did anyone else out there have the shop as their home? Must be some interesting stories to tell.  What about the return of icecream, and bananas?
