  • i can't remmeber them having raisins................i do like them though............you have made me fancy one...

    but it shows my age when i thought your post was about the TV show

  • I don't think so.
  • according to wiki the originals in 1976 did have raiains but these were removed mid 80's after customer research..........so it looks like your workmate was probably right image

    I have the theme music of the tv show as an ear worm nowimage

  • Yes definately had rasins! Where's the Spangles??

    they do double deckers in the choccy machine here at work.
    I limit myself to one a day. Used to love spangles, I don't suppose they make them anymore.
    how about top deck, the shandy drink of the 70s/80s?

  • I thought Topic was the one with raisins. i've not seen either in about 10 years

  • Weren't Topics hazlenut based?

  • am i too young to remember these?? 

    when were these prehistoric choccie bars made??

  • I don't know about raisins, but the double deckers here in Nottingham are always full of people. image

  • Yes Happychap they were.

  • "What's got a hazelnut in every bite?"  "TOPIC!"  Yes, I'd say that's quite hazelnutty.

    I can't believe youtube doesn't have the old Double Decker advert (early '80s?) with the animation and a song, which I think actually contains the word raisin in the lyrics, spuriously rhymed with the word combinationimage

  • I love Double Deckers! So biscuity and chewy.

    I've never known them with raisins.



    Topics have hazelnuts.



    Picnic is the one I always associate with raisins - so avoid.



    What about Club's and the advert with a rhino, Phil. "If you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit... Join our Club." Mint, yum.
  • Everyone loves a Club!

    Dammit!  I'm bringing my 4pm Lindt Excellence chocolate break forward to 3.20!  Kettle on...

  • I think that sounds like the Aztec bar

    I though that old joke reply was "Squirrel Shit"!

  • Which chocolate bar was had the armadillo advert?

    "Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside - armadillo! "

    (hope this was a real advert and not a by-product of all the sugar and E-numbers in 80s sweets!)

    Dime Bar.

    Dime bars, absolutely scrummy.

  • They did, they did, I remember counting how many raisins I had in one, competition with my brother to see who had the most.....I had 3 and was gutted with the piddly amount,

     

  • Pacers, now you're talking. image

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spangles image  Lots of flavours apparently!

     

  • I'm sure "Tunes" throat sweets are what sadly became of Spangles, albeit with menthol hint flavours only.



    Pacers, ended up as Opal Fruits and now Americanised as Starburst.



    Sadly I'm old enough to remember the raisins in Double Decker bars too
  • Mrs R K said that the raisins were in the biscuit base!?



    Love a DD me but only a Marathon hits the spot when hungry.
  • Weren't Pacers mint flavour though?  We had them as well as Opal Fruits.

  • Yeah, they were mint flavoured with green stripes but were exactly the same sweets as what we call Starburst now.

    The girl who played Tigger went to my school and her big brother was in my class.
  • I have no ideas what Spangles or Pacers are... but I loved Trio! 

  • Sarah, do you remember rhubarb and custard sweets? or are you far toooo young.

    I am so old I remember and liked the chewy cigarette sweets 4 for 1p. Also the packets of smaller hard white sweet cigarettes with a red tip.  What were the manufacturers thinking of?

  • I loved pacers, not so sure what spangles were (someone describe them and I might remember) but it's made space dust spring to mind!
