Cadburys Roses commercial from 1988
Cadbury Roses are a selection of individually wrapped miniature chocolates, made by Cadbury UK that entered the market in 1938. They are named after the packaging equipment company that manufactured and supplied the machines that wrapped the chocolates, Rose Brothers (later Roses Forgrove), based in Gainsborough, England, who designed patented early packaging machines.
Roses are inexpensive chocolates, containing a small proportion of cocoa solids, and a high proportion of vegetable fat. A large packet can be bought cheaply, making them a common stand-by gift choice due to the variety of contained chocolates. They are an extremely common gift on Mother’s Day and sell well throughout the Christmas period. They are available in tins, boxes or jars and currently contain 10 different varieties of chocolate:

Schweppes is a beverage brand that is sold around the world. It includes a variety of carbonated water and ginger ales. Its marketing campaign made heavy use of an onomatopoeia in their commercials: “Schhhhh…. Schweppes,” after the sound of the gas escaping as one opens the bottle.
In the late eighteenth century, Johann Jacob Schweppe (1740–1821), a German-born naturalised Swiss watchmaker and amateur scientist developed a process to manufacture carbonated mineral water, based on a process discovered by Joseph Priestley in 1770, founding the Schweppes Company in Geneva in 1783. In 1792 he moved to London to develop the business there. Mainstay products include ginger ale (1870), bitter lemon (1857), and tonic water (The oldest soft drink in the world – 1771).
An ad campaign in the 1950s and 1960s featured a real-life veteran British naval officer named Commander Whitehead, who described the product’s bubbly flavor (effervescence) as “Schweppervescence”.
