A MUM has told of her shock after discovering Smarties and a Chomp bar she hid from her children in 1993.
Susan Woolner’s dog Milo sniffed out the classic chocs in a jewellery box.
The mum of four, 62, told The Sun: “I thought, ‘Bloody hell, how did they get there? Smarties and Chomps were always a favourite in our house but if the children were badly behaved or didn’t finish their meals they didn’t get a treat.
“I used to hide chocolate because if any treats were left lying around they’d be eaten immediately.”
The Smarties tube has a use-by-date of 1/10/1993 while the date on the Chomp bar has faded away.
Susan’s sweet-toothed son Adam, twins Judith and Sabrina, and eldest Gemma were aged eight to ten when mum decided they were too naughty to get the chocs.
Adam, 36, now works as an Jaguar engineer, Gemma, 38, is a driving instructor, Judith, 37, bakes wedding cakes and Sabrina lives in Australia.
Retired Salvation Army cook Susan, of Keele, Staffs, had been clearing out a dressing table on Wednesday and put the jewellery box, a 21st birthday gift in 1980, on the floor.

Jack Russell Milo then pounced. Susan said she’d even moved house with the box but hadn’t bothered to open it.
Her children reckoned the find was hilarious but urged her to bin the chocolate.
Cadbury’s Chomp launched in 1989 priced at 10p. The bar is now 25p but smaller.
Smarties, launched in 1937, cost 22p in 1993 and 60p today.
