      Mondelez has soiled Cadbury, Tobler, Terry's, Milka and Dime.

      Don't do Nestle anyway.

      Eat a lot less chocolate these days.

        Whenever remembering past chocolate gorging the one that I still yearn for is the Montego chocolate biscuit. Anyone else remeber these?

        They came packaged like club biscuits but were much more exotic... they were rum and raisin or chocolate with a hnt of ginger and tasted of golden sunshine to me... But I didn't much like the coffee flavoured one. I can recall treasuring them and eating them as slowly as possible to make the pleasure last longer... They were always the perfect end to a kids meal which invariably started with a healthy plate of sausages or fish fingers with a steaming mountain of mash, peas and carrots.

        Those were the days...

            Sounds like I missed out on the Montego experience. But you have just awakened a memory of a fruity Club. It could be wishful thinking though.

              Ewwh! They are like the choc green triangle from a Quality Street box! Would happily have traded my fruity club for a tasty orange club if this was breaktime at school 30+ yrs ago! Might even have thrown in a garibaldi!

                I liked Montegos, i liked orange Clubs and I liked Trios a lot.

                If it uses The Banana Boat Song in the advert, I'm up for it.

                  They look half a decade before my time when they packaged chocolate bars like pipe tobacco:



                  Trios were good as was the 'Breakaway' and 'Blue Ribbon'.

                        Unfortunately, gum disease has put paid to my confectionery habits but this thread has made me think of a few I still miss; Opal Mints (later Pacers), Tiffin, Dairy Crunch, Marathon (before they became the 'No Fun Size' Snickers) and the rather curiously packaged 'Five Boys' - what was all that about?



                        My holy grail of lost confectionery however has to be the Pink Panther bar;



                        Probably contained more 'E' numbers than Bez on a Saturday night in 1989, but it always transported me to fake strawberry heaven....
