Why do people born in 1991 seem to have a common interest in how cheap things were in the 90s? Was there something in the water?

Actually the cheapest cans/bottles of beer in off licences costed more then than they do now.

Of course people conveniently forget this when they start moaning about prices these days.

I can remember 10 fags 20P and 20 were 40P

There was an old guy in a newsagent that would do them singly too for 3P.
