Having commented on Z`s blog the other day about a box of chocolates I remember from childhood and which used to be a favourite of ours, but which few people, if any, seem to remember I thought I`d see if I could find any info on them on Google. Just to be sure that I wasn`t dreaming them up! Although I well remember the delicious No. 6 (or 9 if you turn it the other way round), it was a round domed chocolate with a gorgeous soft caramel filling. Yummy - my favourite out of the box.
So, I typed in Cadbury`s Lucky Numbers and here`s what I came up with
In 1958 Cadbury launched a new assortment of chewy sweets, some covered in chocolate and some not. These Lucky Numbers each had an individual number on the wrapper, hence the name. The brand was retired in 1968
and even a site had the tv advert words for them
Cadbury’s Lucky Numbers: Late 1950s
Lucky Numbers, Lucky Numbers — chocolate and chew.
I’ll be lucky, you’ll be lucky … they’ll be lucky too!
and then -
I came across this one, with memories of all kinds of sweets and treats - what memories that stirred up!
