80’s advert for Pacers mints.
Pacers is a discontinued brand of popular mint flavoured confection.
Opal Mints were plain white coloured chewy spearmint flavoured sweets, launched as a sister product to Opal Fruits (now known as Starburst). The product was then relaunched as Pacers. Later, three diagonal green stripes were added to the sweet. The brand was discontinued in the 1980s.
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.
