Trio Advert

"# TRIIII-O, TRIIIII-IIIII-O"

Some strange little cartoon girl with an enormous mouth belted out this advert, trying to get us to buy strangely chemical-tasting "toffee" flavour chocolate Trio biscuits.

Hmmmmm.

I have a 1980's Suzy doll as seen in this advert. It's brand new, collector's item.
Will sell for £100, any offers?

The song was a version of 'The Banana Boat song' possibly by Harry Belafonte a 60's west indian singer. there was also a stop go animation film made of a rabbit who used to say the singer was too peircie for his ears - thus the idea for the trio advert

When the girl sings her big mouth makes me laugh thats why the drums can fit in her mouth.

Me and my friend could perform the entire Trio advert, word-perfect.

I don't know if YouTube is a good thing or a bad thing when it comes to enjoying memories. Just search for 'Trio Advert'. It's on there.

I remember the Jamaican style - a chocolatey biscuit and a toffee taste too" too. You weren't imagining it.
mrsevans22-Feb-2007, 01:36:46 PM


I swear the song went- Trio oh Trio, i want a Trio and i want one now. with chocolate biscuit and yummy toffee, magic wrappers and games and colours too! Then there's this bit I cant remember at the end. I dont remember any 'not one not two' bit, have I got the wrong ad here...

Annoying advert and rotten biscuit

I think the song was sung in a jamaican accent. Looking back I think it may have been a little bit racist. Quality

Was the ending to the song not...... not one not two but three things in it, a cholatey biscuit with a toffee taste too, perhaps i just made it up ha ha.

On the subject of biscuit ads, does anyone remember the one for "Breakaway"? It was something like "if I eat my sisters Breakaway, she'll burst my new balloon" (Balloon Pops). "Well, once you've seen one ballon, you've seen them all!"

Trio lyrics if I remember correctly where Trio, triiiiiooo I wanna trio and I want one know not one, not two but three things in it I wanna trio and I want one now! Bring back Trio's, better than Penguins by far!

i an ertainly remember the choolate but what was the catchphrase that went along with the advert??? it went...trio, trio ...........

The girl's name was Susie. The advert went something along the lines of "Susie's too loud. So, we've put her in a soundproof box", said the hippie like man and his little sidekick banging the bongo drums.

CAN YOU STILL BUY TRIO'S ANYWHERE?
DAVE198330-Mar-2005, 01:06:32 PM


What was the girl's name ?
Samantha27-Mar-2005, 09:04:09 PM


I remember this as if it were still on TV! I thought I was the only one who remembered this! No-one who I know remembers it. Why did they stop selling it anyway when KitKat is still going strong?!
