5 Classic Food Adverts from the 1980s
Just to let you know, this post was written before I started the paleo diet to help ease my psoriasis. Nowadays I eat a more allergy-friendly diet, but leave these older, non-paleo posts up in case they are useful to readers, as I know not everyone eats the same as I do. Thanks for your understanding.
'Hot Dog' Heinz Ketchup
This advert from around 1987 features a very young (and pre-Friends) Matt LeBlanc. And, really we all knew that perfect line of ketchup wasn't made by that precariously-balanced bottle.
Cadbury's Finger of Fudge
You may remember this advert from 1985 - and don't tell me you're not singing along to the jingle, either.
A packet of Monster Munch (always beef flavour, never pickled onion) was often slipped into my plastic He-Man lunchbox when I was at Primary school. They're still around now, and they recently re-lauched their retro packaging. I loved them then, and still pinch a couple off the girls when I buy them now.
Milky Bar Kid - in Space
Although the classic Milky Bar advert is the Wild West one - I fondly remember this one from 1981. Milky Bars are on meeeeeeeee!!!
I don't remember the advert as much as the song: 'I want a Trio and I want one now' - again, a standard lunchbox treat during my early childhood, I have no idea why they stopped making them. I used to make it last longer by nibbling off the chunky chocolate and then crunching away at the caramel and biscuit.
Which food adverts from the 80s do you remember? Did you remember any of these?
