We love a good party here at Coinadrink, so when I saw that we hosted one 20 years ago this week I just had to share such a fantastic throwback. 28th November 1998 was the date and the National Motor Cycle Museum in Birmingham was the venue, and it goes without saying that we once again managed to turn the party into a very successful charity event!
I love reminiscing through old TV adverts. Over a month ago now I shared the dancing eyebrows advert with you and it quickly became clear that many of you feel the same. The reception the post received, particularly on social media, was incredible and the ad sparked fond memories. Now, I’ve found another Cadbury classic, this time with the drumming gorilla!
As we’re gearing up for the latest MacMillan Coffee Morning scheduled for today and tomorrow, I just wanted to issue a little throwback to last years’ efforts. One year ago today saw our staff join the rest of the world with our own little coffee morning and boy was it a good one! Our staff brought out their inner Mary Berry’s and Jamie Oliver’s to bake a delicious assortment of goodies, all of which were displayed in our showroom.
Last week’s ‘Featured Friday’ post shows just how many chocolate bars us Brits are able to indulge in whenever we like. That’s great, but no amount of Snickers’, Galaxies’ or Twirl’s can make up for the bars that are sadly no longer with us. This week’s ‘Thursday Throwback’ takes a tasty trip down memory lane to revisit eight classic chocolate bars that have been discontinued. Tissues at the ready please…
I’ll never forget heading into the newsagent after school and spending about 15p on one of these! Freddo’s classic grizzly cousin added caramel to delicious Cadbury milk chocolate and the only downside to Taz was how small they were! At least we can be thankful that Cadbury had the decency to replace Taz with the caramel Freddo.
Cadbury has produced some excellent adverts of the years. From the airport trucks to the drumming gorilla, they have produced some genuine talking points amongst friends, family and colleagues. 2009 saw one of the most bizarre adverts ever released by them, but it quickly turned into one of the most memorable adverts from the noughties. Be prepared for an excellent ‘Thursday Throwback’!
