1979 UK and Ireland commercial for Frys Chocolate Cream.
Fry’s Cream is a chocolate bar made by Cadbury’s, and formerly by J. S. Fry & Sons. It consists of a fondant centre wrapped in dark chocolate and is available in a plain version, and also peppermint or orange fondant. Fry’s Chocolate Cream is one of the oldest chocolate bars, launched in 1866. Cadbury’s also produced a milk chocolate bar called Five Boys using the Fry’s trademark in the 1960s. Cadbury’s produced milk and plain chocolate sandwich bars under the Fry’s branding also.
1979 advert for Aero chocolate bar.
The Aero bar was originally introduced in the North of England in 1935 by the Rowntree Mackintosh chocolate company in York, one of the first products in a new marketing-led sales initiative introduced by the company during the 1930s. Distribution was increased to the rest of the UK during the following months. Rowntree Mackintosh was acquired by Nestlé in 1988, who continued the production of the Aero brand.
Cadbury Flake is a bar of thinly folded milk chocolate produced in Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and South Africa by Cadbury.
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 and Ireland ice cream vendors serve ’99s’ 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.
Flake is available in the United States at specialty retailers, including Central Market.
