Mint Cracknel

Mint Cracknel

I seem to remember that the advertisement went something like...

"Mint Cracknell takes you somewhere cool and green. Somewhere cool and green."

It was a chocolate bar consisting of two small squares held in a small cardboard tray. A little like the cardboard tray that seems to have vanished from Bounty, these days!

It tasted a little like toothpaste - even though I quite liked it.

The inside of the chocolate bar had a crunchy green centre and was probably too "adult" for my childish taste - I think I must have been about 7 - 10 when I first tried it.

I'm not too sure that it was very popular, though.

It disappeared - just like the Bounty cardboard tray did!

Happy times.

    I loved this and later in life I worked with someone who had a brother who worked in the factory that made it. Said that it was withdrawn because it was too expensive to produce. So sad.

    I worked in a sweet shop and bought one of these every pay day. Think it might have been stopped due to the price as I remember we didn't sell very many of them as they were out of reach of the pocket money kids got back then. It was mainly adults who bought it. Well, since they have just brought back Galaxy counters, we can now live in hope of this being brought back too..........hope so!
