1980's Sweet Memories - 500pc Jigsaw Puzzle in a Tin
As the price of confectionery rose during the Eighties, the language for selling them moved up a gear. Packs offered 10% extra, at least 3p off, special price, new low price, new longer size, trial price, only 20p and one extra Rolo free.
It was during this decade that barcodes appeared on every product, and the move to flow-wrap packaging began to replace the use of silver foil paper, that had been so much part of chocolate bar wrappers for generations.
New Brands included Terry’s Bitz and Pyramint, Rowntree’s Black Magic bar, Cadbury’s Wispa and the novelty interlocking plastic container of ipso sweets to be found in Woolworths stores. On the way out were familiar friends like Fry’s Five Centre, Waifa, Bar Six and the boxed assortment Weekend.
If you do remember these Products, then this is the perfect gift for you. Celebrate with a good chunk of nostalgia. Great gift idea for a special birthday.
