F is for Five Star,.....

Posted: 06 Apr 2017 04:28 PM PDT

Following the Cadbury dessert theme from yesterday, today, for the letter F, I feature Cadbury Five Star chocolate bar. This is a caramelly, chocolaty bar - soft caramel on the inside in every bite of chewy chocolate. It has definitely evolved over time and though I am not sure that I love the versions (yes, there are a few different versions of the 5-Star bar) today as much as I did the bar I devoured as a child, it is still loved and a very popular chocolate today as well in India. One more treasured treat to enjoy with my kids. I found an old vintage ad of the chocolate - pictured to the left.  Now off to buy some for myself from the local Indian store here :)

Next for the letter F, is one character many of us fell in love with when we saw him first on TV - in ads - I am talking about Fido Dido. He was (and probably still is) the mascot for 7-Up and appeared in various cool, funny, sweet ads and I spent many hours drawing Fido Dido cartoons! Now we all watch the ads (old and new) together.


Q to the reader: Any memorable TV advertisements from when you were a kid? Or print-ads? As for me, there are too many to list here :) Will someday do an AtoZ challenge or more for just that maybe..

E is for Eclairs (the ones from Cadbury)

Cadbury Eclairs (now called Choclairs in India - though I prefer the older name still!) were definitely a treasured treat as a child. We loved those classmates of ours that brought Eclairs to pass out on their birthdays to the class and hoped each birthday celebrated in class meant more Eclairs for us!!  My luggage back from my annual summer trips to India now always saves some space for Cadbury Eclairs and though we do bring other loved chocolates/candies too, guess what disappears first?? The Eclairs of course! I am glad the local Indian stores also carry these for those often appearing sudden cravings for Eclairs :)

Q to the reader: What was your favorite candy/chocolate as a child? Let me know in the comments!
