Chewits advert from 1986

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.

1960 Pascalls White Heather Chocolates

Pascall products were first produced as a joint venture between the Cadbury Brothers and James Pascall at the Cadbury factory in Tasmania, Australia. In 1938, Pascall products commenced production in New Zealand. In 1981, Australian Pascall production moved from Tasmania to Melbourne.   In New Zealand, most of the products produced by Pascall were made at their own factory in Avondale, Auckland until December 2009, when the factory was closed down and production moved to the Cadbury factory in Dunedin and to factories in Australia and Thailand. The response to the changes has not been popular with New Zealanders, claiming that the Thai made Minties are much softer and do not taste the same.

Cadburys Roses 1988

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:
