Cadbury’s Whole Nut

This was really nothing more than the great Cadburys Dairy Milk bar with Hazelnuts in it. It really was that simple. To me it was a very simple way to ruin a milk chocolate bar, honestly why did they do that.

However, I can hear you all shouting out it was “great”, and I will admit there was one thing about the bar that really made me happy, and that was the theme being played to the “Banana Boat” theme.

“Nuts! Who-o-le Hazelnuts! Cadbury’s take them and they cover them in chocolate!” and the end tag line that went, “Whole nuts, not crunched or halved” Now that was great sing along advertising for the bar

You may also remember the 1979 commercial, that had a lone man in a boat who opened his chest, and it was just full of Cadburys Whole Nut and nothing else. Alone he thinks, he opens a Whole Nut to suddenly see a submarine periscope pop up next to him. Well it was funny in the 1970’s, honest.

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.
