Cadbury’s Monsters

These were really small chocolate bars, not at all chunky and had nothing in extra flavouring. It was purely the milk chocolate taste, very cheap and extremely satisfying too.

The wrappers were of different monsters and friends of monsters. Do you remember Grog and Nog? Although my favourite was “Henry” the Dragon. Showing my age now.

I tend to remember collecting some sort of comic, but not sure if that was a send off item, or something at the counter.

“We’ve just arrived from Cadbury Land,Monsters, Laughs, and Furry Friends,
Milk chocolate bars from Cadbury’s, We’re such a happy band. You’ll find us now in your sweetshop,
This is Cadbury Land!”

You may remember the stories on the wrappers like.

“The trouble with the Hairy Mammoth was not because it was as high as a double-decker (though you couldn’t really mistake it for one- not unless buses were hairy and went “ROAR!”
Yes. You just do not get writing like that these days.

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.
