The sweets were originally manufactured in Southport during the early 1960s. They began to sell throughout the rest of the UK during the year 1965, before gaining international popularity. After the closing of the factory in 2006 manufacture was moved to Slovakia. Chewits has greatly expanded its line of flavors, however the original flavours consisted of Strawberry, Blackcurrant, Orange and Banana. Over the years more exotic flavours such as Ice Cream, Cola, Rhubarb & Custard, and Blue Mint were introduced as limited edition flavours. In 2000 sour flavours, Apple and Tutti Frutti were launched, other fizzy and hot flavours were available for a limited time. New Chewits pack designs, formats and flavours were launched in 2009. Currently Chewits core flavour range includes Strawberry, Blackcurrant, Fruit Salad, Ice Cream, Cola and Orange.
Ice Cream Chewits, originally released in 1989, were re-introduced in 2009 following an online petition and demand expressed on Facebook and Bebo.

Vicks Sinex is a brand of topical nasal decongestant spray produced by Vicks, a division of Procter & Gamble. The active ingredient contained in the Sinex nasal spray is Oxymetazoline which acts to relieve blocked nasal passages. The recommended dosage is 2–3 sprays in each nostril every 10–12 hours, though users should check the packaging for the specific product purchased. Excessive use of this product could lead to a dependency on it whereby the nasal passages block without use of Oxymetazoline again. Thus it is recommended that Sinex not be used for more than three days. Extra ingredients include camphor, eucalyptol, and menthol, which give Sinex Nasal Spray products the characteristic aroma of Vicks products but could also cause irritation of the mucous membrane.

The Rover 200 Series, and later the Rover 25, are a series of compact cars produced under the British marque Rover from 1994 to 2005.
There have been three distinct generations of the Rover 200. The first generation was a four-door saloon car based on the Honda Ballade. The second generation was available in three or five-door hatchback forms, as well a coupé and cabriolet (in relatively small numbers). Its sister model, the Honda Concerto was built on the same production line in Rover’s Longbridge factory. The final generation was developed independently by Rover on the platform of its predecessor, and was available as a three or five-door hatchback. After the sale of Rover in 2000, and following a facelift, the model was renamed and sold as both the Rover 25 and MG ZR. Production ceased in 2005 when MG Rover went into administration. Production rights and tooling for the model, but not the Rover name, now belong to Chinese car manufacturer Nanjing Automotive.
