  • Ayds

    In the 70's, and possibly 80's, there was these supposed slimming toffees called Ayds. Dead hard and tasteless they were too. Did they remarket them from the say mid 80's, or did they do the sensible thing and drop the whole product all together?

    I remember one of the ads was on Ad Infinintum, with Victor Lewis-Smith poking fun at them.

      I remember my brother's girlfriend used them and gave me one to try. It was revolting.

        It was TV Offal - Channel 4 shown it straight after coming out of an ad break so it looked as it was part of the commercials. I bet that those who used to press pause when taping Offal probably didn't tape that advert.
        Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

          I have a lot of digitalised TV Offal episodes on a CD somewhere. Along with episodes of "In bed with me dinner", wonder where that CD is!

            In Bed With Medinner was great - both ironic and satirical. Where else would you see Bob Warman present Miss Yorkshire Television 1977 from Skegness over two decades after the original TX?

              Yeah, I remember LBC used to broadcast ads for them in the early '80s, and News of the World ran some prints ads...Until that disease became big news. Then it was weird hearing the ads and they disappeared. I think they changed the name and tried a come back later on.
