Adverts ADVERTS

Trio Advert

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

"# 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? cemat@hotmail.co.uk

    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
