Pepsi – The battle between Coke and Pepsi in the 1970?s was all out war even more than it is today in the politically correct times we now live in.
Marathon – The original to Snickers I can remember my eldest brother being chosen to taste these and coming home with some free samples and he got paid too. If I remember rightly he treated us to a chinese takeaway that night. A right treat indeed.
Amazin raisin bar – Rum & Raisin chewy bar. Eastender sing song advert *Its amazin what raisins can do all that goodness an it
Blue Riband – The only funny thing about this was the advert. Where the mum gives the boy a Blue Riband to give to the sad singing Mike Beery anything to get him to stop singing!
Fry’s Chocolate Cream – This was almost an adult chocolate to me for a start it was plain chocolate and it just looked so up market too I suppose it has a little to do with being around since 1866 and the world that our great grand parents would have lived in.
Jubblies – Triangular lumps of flavoured ice trick was after you sucked one side you flipped it over to suck the fresh juice from what was the bottom without dropping it.
Texan – The Mighty Chew. Very yummy this one. Nougat covered in chocolate would stretch and stretch. A really fun chew.
Pez – Tiny hard tablet like sweets that were dispensed by pulling back the head of Donald Duck (in my case)
Milky Bar – White cholate bar. Made famous by that little bespectacled kid. Early revenge of the Nerds.
Milk Tray Bar – One of the weirdest concepts of them all. A box of chocolates in a bar. The only trouble was trying not to get a bit of the coffe cream in with your Turkish Delight.
