Cadbury Chocolates of the Past
Milk and plain chocolate covered nougatine and caramel bar with raisins.
1971-1978 were the glory days of the Amazin’ Raisin bar. Who can forget the cockney knees-up of a TV jingle: ‘It’s amazin’ what raisins can do/Full of goodness and it’s all for you/It’s got two kinds of chocolate and caramel too/And it’s got raisins and they’re good for you’. Try mentioning it to raisin fans of a certain age and see them come over all wistful.

Fuse exploded into the UK marketplace on ‘Fuesday’ 24th September 1996. It was a chocolate bar with a difference – instead of having a chocolate coating on the outside, the yummy ingredients were suspended right the way through it.
40 million bars were sold in the first week, and within eight weeks it was the UK’s favourite confectionary. Alas, ten years later and Fuse fizzled off the shelves, but it’s fondly remembered to this day

In 1958 Cadbury launched a new assortment of chewy sweets, some covered in chocolate and some not. These Lucky Numbers each had an individual number on the wrapper, hence the name. The brand was retired in 1968

The humble Spangle has taken on a totemic significance for those in the United Kingdom. The question "What ever happened to Spangles?" became so frequent that Spangles became a shortcut to unabashed discussions about nostalgia, particularly amongst those born between the mid-1960s and mid-1970s in the United Kingdom.
Spangles were re-introduced to the United Kingdom market for a limited period in 1995. They were sold for a set period of time and have since never been reproduced.
Spangles were available, among others, in red wrappers (fruit flavour) and black (liquorice).
Research has shown that the "Old English" variety was favoured by those with more sophisticated tastes, whereas the fruit flavours appealed to the untutored palate. Some even remember the appearance of the 'mystery spangle', a new flavour which was wrapped in paper covered with question marks.
Nowadays the Tunes brand is the only remaining relative of the Spangles brand, sharing the dimensions and wrapping of the original product.
