Milky Bar

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

Now come on, who does not like white chocolate? Nobody of course. I had a big advantage here, as with my national health glasses I really did look like the Milky Bar Kid, and even my school mates teased me. But, no matter I was happy to buy more white chocolate and enjoy.

Just so you remember the Milky Bar kid was white, blond hair, silly glasses and annoying. Well that was me too.

And we all remember the jingle?

“The milky bar kid is strong and tough only the best is good enough the creamiest milk, the whitest bar… “

“That’s Nestles Milky Bar. The Milky Bars are on me”

Now when you were a kid you pronounced it “nessles,” then somehow it became “neslay”, it was not a bad dream , it actually did change, you were not mad.

The white horse, the cowboy environment, and the goodies and the baddies made this a boys white chocolate, but the boys were to have a shock. In the 200s the Milky Bar Kid changed into a girl! Now how on earth did that happen?

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.
