Sweet adverts from the 1970s and 1980s

It’s almost back to school time for our little darlings – and time for us parents to breathe a sigh of relief and put our feet up! And whilst you’re nursing that well-deserved peaceful cuppa, we thought we’d take a trip with you down memory lane to a time before mobile phones and the internet – a time when an Android only appeared in space films, and you could still get a bag of crisps for 10p (yes, THAT long ago!) So take a look and smile at some of our favourite sweet adverts from the 1970s and 1980s and, if the fancy takes you, you can buy each and every one right here on our site! Sit back and enjoy….which advert did you love the most?    ...

Truffles for teacher

With end of term looming fast on the horizon, it’s almost time to say thanks to your child’s favourite teacher for all they’ve done for your darling daughter or son throughout the last year. There are several teachers in our family who have all admitted that their once-spacious cupboard above the kettle in the kitchen is now choc-a-block with mugs from past pupils.  It’s not that they’re not grateful – they tell me that each and every mug brings back fond memories of individual children.  It’s simply that they can only drink out of one mug at a time! So this year, I’ve done the hard work for you.  I have personally researched what a teacher would love to receive instead (and let’s face it, most of them have earned it!)  The winner hands-down turned out to be “something we can use and won’t hang around in the back of a cupboard”. Put yourself in their shoes.  After a full morning or afternoon of scolding Hamish for pulling Jessica’s hair, listening to girls’ incessant chatter about Justin Timberlake  and trying to keep the noise level above a dull roar, what would get you through ’till hometime?  In the (assumed) absence of hard liquor, we think it would be some good, strong coffee, matched with an energy surge provided by some delicious, quality chocolate truffles. And that’s just what we’ve popped into our luxurious “Thank You Teacher’s Gift Set”, priced at only £12.50 – a 100g bag of pure ground coffee, along with a box of six truffles.  They’ll be the envy of the staff room! Remember that all our gifts are hand produced and are therefore limited, so make sure you get yours well in time, before we sell...
