Ski Yoghurts

It is hard to believe how massive yoghurts were in the 1970’s, I used to be a Saturday boy, and the SKI yoghurt section in the chiller was having to be refilled by me every few minutes, the ladies just kept buying them for desserts or snacks, they were amazingly popular.

The Ski brand was probably the most recognisable with it’s blue small cartons, which were more popular in the individual cartons in the 1970’s.

Made by Nestle the flavours were Vanilla, Strawberry , Raspberry and I think Pineapple, and the flavours came and went, but I hate to admit it they tasted good. We were a little more easy with sell by dates, but after a few days past the date, I use to take them off the shelf and have a nice three or four cartons. Of course they were supposed to be put in the bins, but this was the 1970’s.

“Ski, the full of fitness food, for all the family “ This was normally voiced over as we saw a real upper class family skiing up and down, and when they were finished skiing in the snow, they of course need something more cold to finish off with.

The shape of the carton always looked like a mini Dalek, and I am sure I remember at school making Daleks out of the cartons. I know Blue Peter built hundreds of things from old Ski cartons.

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.
