10 Chocolate Bars 80s Kids Loved To Eat!


4. Banjo

banjoThe original Banjo chocolate bar was sold in the Greater London area, UK, but the product was discontinued in 1954. At that time, it was a chocolate wafer bar, with a chocolate filling, covered in milk chocolate, rather similar to Kit Kat. Banjo was reintroduced with a substantial television advertising campaign in 1976. In this reincarnation, Banjo was a twin bar (similar in shape and size to twix) and was the same as a Drifter but with a chopped peanut layer and the whole covered in milk chocolate. It was packaged in distinctive navy blue - with the brand name prominently displayed in yellow block text - and was one of the first British snack bars to have a heat-sealed wrapper closure instead of the reverse-side fold common to most domestically-produced chocolate bars at that time. It was available into the 1980s. There was a coconut version also available in a red wrapper with yellow text.

When asked if he had a last request he asked for a Texan bar which took him a long time to eat; meanwhile, the bandits fell asleep, ensuring his escape. The cowboy's catchphrase “Someone should have told em, Texan takes time a chewin!” "Sure is a mighty chew!"

Inside, where the burial chamber would have been, was a mint-flavoured fondant. Other variations included Pyramints in bars which had pyramid segments. Production had ceased by the 1990s, due to falling demand.
