    Nah, not the later Cadbury white chocolate ones, these were similar in size to the current animal bars and were swirly multicoloured

    Anyone remember a dream bar form the 70s I think made by Cadbury or rowntrees
    all I can remember is that they were squarish, we’re swirly multi coloured and very sickly like pink panther bars and the advert ( that eludes me ) was a song and I think a hand drawn type cartoon
    ”when you look into a dream , things aren’t always what they seem, pink and yellow , orange too , Rowntrees (Cadbury) make a dream come true.

    In the late 1980s when we were sorting out a cupboard, I found some empty cardboard packaging in a cupboard - it was an empty cardboard pack of Smarties, and it had a Punch and Judy themed offer on the packaging where you could make finger puppets cut from the cardboard and you could send off for a cardboard Punch and Judy theatre, if I remember what it said on there. The offer's closing date was 31st August 1976, so that should date it to early on that year. Does anyone remember this, or even have the packaging from that?

    Just like fizzy drinks don't taste quite right chocolate out of plastic is not the same. I have a friend who has family in the ROI and every time she visits her family she brings me back a big bag of Cadbury's chocolate bars. For years after we went plastic (screw the environment eh Mondelez?) you could still get foil wrapped Cadbury's bars in Ireland, they also get loads of things we don't get like Orange Crisp and Tiffin. Couple of years she came back and said to me "I've got good news and bad news, good news is I have your chocolate, bad news is Cadbury Ireland has went plastic". Plastic wrap deffo leaves a tinge in the chocolate.

    Wow, look at how fat those tubes are. This is proof positive that sweets are shrinking over the years.
