    Default chambourcy real chocolate mousse

    This advert only sticks in my memory because it was so irritating. A chocolate mousse aimed at adults, made by Cham-boss-ee (that's how it was said no idea how you spell it) with some woman who looked like Mystic Meg going on about how it was made of real chocolate and at the end she says 'just don't tell the children'. It was on during nearly every ad break in the morning during its run sometime in the 80's.

    It's in a Ski shaped yoghurt pot.

    Why did they change the shape? I really liked them.

    It was on the TV circa 1986 - I used to think as an eight year old that it was pure torture that there was a warning at the start of the advert that went: "the following commercial is for adults only" - what was it advertising? Alcohol? Over 50 pension plans? Condoms? No, chocolate mousse.

    They used to show the yoghurt pot as if it was like a swimming pool of chocolate mousse, and some woman dived her spoon into the pot - cue woman with a sub-Mystic Meg facial expression with eyes wide open.

    I also used to think that it wasn't fair that chocolate mousse was only advertised at adults and that it obviously wasn't an adult thing like alcohol is, but back then I took too literally that youngsters were not allowed to have the product as I used to take advertising too literally when I was younger.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Yep, I remember that advert, it used to annoy the **** out of me since I loved that chocolate mousse as a kid and yet there was this annoying b*tch on the TV saying it wasn't for children! Yet my mum explained to me that the advertizers knew children WOULD watch the commercial, it was just a sneaky way of advertizing the product to both adults and children.

    I suppose it has comparisons with Yorkie's "it's not for girls" slogan, whereas Milk Tray was always targeted towards women.

    I wondered why the mousse looked so brown!
