1978 commercial form BANJO chocolate Bar
Banjo is a chocolate bar once available in the UK. Introduced with a substantial television advertising campaign in 1976, Banjo was a twin bar (similar in shape and size to Twix) and based upon a wafer with a chopped peanut layer and the whole covered in milk chocolate. It was packaged in distinctive navy blue – with the brand name prominently displayed in yellow block text – and was one of the first British snack bars to have a heat-sealed wrapper closure instead of the reverse-side fold common to most domestically-produced chocolate bars at that time. It was available into the 1980s. There was a coconut version also available in a red wrapper with yellow text.

Smarties are oblate spheroids with a minor axis of about 5 mm (0.2 in) and a major axis of about 15 mm (0.6 in). They come in eight colours: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet, pink and brown, although the blue variety was temporarily replaced by a white variety in some countries, while an alternative natural colouring dye of the blue colour was being researched.
1974 commercial for Marathon chocolate bar featuring some nice ladies! 🙂
In the UK and Ireland, it was originally sold under the name Marathon. Mars standardized many of its global brand names and the name was changed to Snickers in 1990. For 18 months before the name changed, the words “Internationally known as Snickers” were printed on the side of the Marathon wrapper. Following the name change, the bar moved from being Britain’s ninth most popular bar to the third most popular.
Mars has since re-registered the original name as a UK trademark. There is also a campaign to rename the bar: Bring Back Marathon

1991 commercial for Kelloggs CoCo Pops.
Cocoa Pops (known as Choco Krispis, Choco Krispies, or Coco Pops outside of the United States) is a breakfast cereal produced by Kellogg’s. It is a cocoa-flavored version of Rice Krispies. Containing a substance imitating milk chocolate, the cereal can quickly turn milk “chocolatey.”
The cereal is known as Choco Krispis in Portugal, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina, and Choco Krispies in Spain, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. It was introduced in the United Kingdom as Coco Pops in 1961, and is also known by that name in Denmark, Bulgaria, Ghana, Malta, New Zealand, Ireland, Finland, Italy, Greece, Sweden, Israel, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Botswana, Hong Kong, Lebanon and Australia. Later in the 1960s, the name was changed to “Coco Krispies,” but subsequently reverted back to Coco Pops. In 1998, the cereal was briefly renamed again in the UK, this time to Choco Krispies. However, in 1999, after falling sales and a telephone poll in which the British public voted, its name reverted back to Coco Pops. The cereal was known as Cocoa Krispies when it was marketed in Canada, but it is no longer distrusted there.
