ANYONE REMEMBER MONSTER BARS?
Back in the 1960s, one of the favourite items of confectionary amongst kids was the MONSTER BAR - otherwise referred to as an MB Bar. In some ways it was similar to a FRY'S CHOCOLATE CREAM, but without a wrapper - and, if I remember correctly, it was originally priced at tuppence (2d).
In the mid-'80s, because of new rules and regulations, it was given a wrapper - but this was relatively short-lived as it disappeared from the shelves not long after. It returned a few years ago looking pretty much the same - but with an inferior chocolate covering and tasting not quite as good as it once did. Whether or not it's produced by the same manufacturer is unknown, but I doubt it.
It currently sells for around 75p in small, independent sweet shops, so it's actually quite expensive compared to what it once was in its heyday. Good to see it's still around though - even if it's not quite the quality, value for money product of yesteryear.
