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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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.
Milky Bar – White cholate bar. Made famous by that little bespectacled kid. Early revenge of the Nerds.
