IF you were a schoolchild in the 1980s your lunchbox was immediately made better if you found one of these snacks inside.

The 1980s was a decade known for its many contributions to pop culture, including fashion, music and technology - as well as the food.

Do you remember eating any of the delights below?

These snacks are currently part of the I Grew Up 80s exhibition at Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum and are bound to bring back a lot of memories.

These classic sweets can still be found on shelves to this day but under the name Starburst.

Although these sweets are originally from the UK, in 1998, the name changed to match what they were called in the USA.

Club biscuits can also still be found on shelves today in a variety of different flavours, from McVitie's.

The Jacob's brand classic had several memorable advertisements, with one of the most memorable slogans being "If you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit, join our Club".

Another classic chocolate bar is Marathon which can also still be found on shelves across the country under the name Snickers.

The product was originally called Snickers in the USA but was marketed under the name Marathon in the UK before changing in 1990.

No school lunchbox was complete without a Trio! bar.

The chocolate bar has a biscuit base topped with toffee cream and milk chocolate.

It was discontinued in 2003 but returned thanks to a Facebook campaign.

This chocolate classic was manufactured in the 1970s and 1980s but also left shelves in the 1980s.

It was briefly re-launched as a limited edition product by Nestlé in 2005.

Although you can still find this product in the UK, Barratt no longer calls them Sweet Cigarettes.

Instead, you can find them under the name Candy Sticks.

Collector and cultural commentator Matt Fox has devoted his time to exploring a 1980s childhood through the iconic objects of a decade in which so much changed.

The exhibition will run until September 9.
