Cadburys Chocolate Buttons

Well this is the top of the crop, the one when we were only a few months old we had these little flat milk chocolate buttons forced into our mouths by granny and mum and dad. They are the best, and even now try and NOT eat the whole pack, it is almost impossible to do.

These little pieces of heaven were introduced to the UK in the 1960’s and they came in a small packet that was coloured blue and it was a very simple task to bite the packet open and tip them into your hand. Or of course you could cut out the middle man, and tip them straight into the mouth, only problem was that they lasted only a few seconds if you did that.

The size of the buttons were about equal to the size of the “Tiddlywinks” button we used to play with, and the buttons were unable to stand the heat of a human hand for more than a few seconds, as they would turn to a great sticky mess very quickly, as they melted in our hands.

I repeat delicious!! And of course they are still available, but to my big adult hand they look a stupid size, my teenage hand remembers it much better.

Buy some buttons, jolly, jolly buttons, Buy some buttons, they’ll last you all the day.

When you’ve sixpence to spend  You’ll have buttons to lend,

And buttons to last you while you play! Voice-over:  Cadbury’s Chocolate Buttons – sixpence!

70s Retro Sweets

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.
