BBC: "The time when sweets were strictly rationed"

"The sweet-toothed British public were so keen to taste sugary treats when seven years of sweet rationing ended briefly in 1949 that the government quickly had to reintroduce restrictions for another three-and-a-half years because there was such demand."

"Here - as IWM North and Horrible Histories open a new 'Big Picture Show' to celebrate the 60th anniversary of sugar and sweets finally coming off the ration - take a nostalgic look back at how food restrictions affected lives, during and after WWII."
