1979 Cadburys Whole Nut

In June 1905, Cadbury launched its first Dairy Milk bar, with a higher proportion of milk than previous chocolate bars, and it became the company’s best selling product by 1913. George Cadbury Junior, responsible for the development of the bar, has said “All sorts of names were suggested: Highland Milk, Jersey and Dairy Maid. But when a customer’s daughter suggested Dairy Milk, the name stuck.”.   Fruit and Nut was introduced as part of the Dairy Milk line in 1928, soon followed by Whole Nut in 1933. By this point, Cadbury’s was the brand leader in the United Kingdom.  In 1928, Cadbury’s introduced the “glass and a half” slogan to accompany the Dairy Milk bar, to advertise the bar’s higher milk content.

1986 Cadburys Milk Tray (Boat over Waterfall)

Milk Tray is brand of boxed chocolates currently manufactured by Cadbury. Introduced by Cadbury UK in 1915, it is one of the longest running brands in the confectioner’s portfolio. Milk Tray is sold in Australia, parts of Canada (such as Newfoundland), Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom.

The name ‘Tray’ derived from the way in which the original assortment was delivered to the shops. Originally Milk Tray was packed in five and a half pound boxes, arranged on trays from which it was sold loose to customers.

In 1916 a half pound deep-lidded box was introduced with a purple background and gold script, which has undergone minor changes in the ninety years since it was introduced. In 1924 a one-pound box was introduced, and by the mid 1930s the Cadbury’s Milk Tray assortment was outselling all its competitors.

The pack design has been regularly updated and the assortment itself has changed in line with consumer preferences, and today it is still one of the most popular boxes of chocolates in the UK selling over 8 million boxes per annum.

1980s Cadburys Flake (women in boat)

Flake is a brand of chocolate bar currently manufactured by Cadbury and consists of thinly folded Dairy Milk, milk chocolate.

The product was first developed in 1920 and was founded by an employee of Cadburys. When the excess from the moulds was drained off, it fell off in a stream and created folded chocolate with flaking properties.

Since 1922 in Britain, Australia and Ireland ice cream vendors serve “99 Flakes” which are vanilla soft serve ice cream in a wafer cone in which a half size Flake bar is inserted in the top. Screwballs are similar but have a plastic cone rather than a wafer.

1980s Cadburys Roses Thank you Very Much

Cadbury Roses are a selection of individually wrapped chocolates currently made by Cadbury. Introduced in 1938, they are named after the English packaging equipment company “Rose Brothers” (later Rose Forgrove), that manufactured and supplied the machines that wrapped the chocolates.

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 in the United Kingdom and Ireland currently contain 10 different varieties of chocolate.
