1979 Paxo Rooster Booster

Paxo is a well-known brand of stuffing in the United Kingdom, currently owned by Premier Foods.

Paxo was devised in 1901 by John Crampton, a butcher from Eccles near Manchester, who wanted to have something extra to sell to his customers shopping for their Sunday lunch menus.

In the beginning sales growth of Paxo was slow because stuffing is mainly served with chickens, and poultry was then traditionally regarded as a luxury. As the price of chickens dropped and that of red meats rose in the 1950s and 1960s, Paxo’s popularity grew.

At Christmas, the product is advertised with the slogan “Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the Paxo” (a play on the phrase “Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without the Turkey”).

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.
