If you had to describe sweets from the 70s one word you would not use is boring. The seventies produced some of the wackiest ideas for confectionary you have ever known. From candy that explodes in your mouth to popcorn type sweets called HankyPanky, a selection of chocolates in a bar and coconut flavoured strands of chewy sugar wrapped in a tobacco type pouch called Spanish Gold.
Am I making my point?
As the seventies was the decade when PC meant the fuzz the adverts weren’t boring either. Some very near the knuckle sexist adverts were made the most famous being the cadburys flake.
So take a look through these pages and see what retro sweets jog your memories and please join in and share your memories via the Facebook comments.
I must thank OldSpice & Goldencup and all the guys n gals from Chocolate Review for all their help getting all this info together I couldn’t have done it without them. If you want to learn more about chocolate from years gone by to the present go ask the experts, they certainly know their beans.
