Banjo chocolate bars

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

Banjo bars were about in the late 70's / early 80's and were just about the finest sweet I can remember. They came in two varieties: Roast Nut (blue and yellow wrapper) and Coconut (pink wrapper) but Banjo bars sadly vanished some time in the mid 80's :(

    The finest chocolate bar ever made IMO. Everyone you mention Banjos to seems to say they were lovely.

    How the hell they kept Twix and got rid of Banjos is beyond me!!! I've just finished a Blue Riband and if it had nuts in it, we'd nearly be there.

    I remember them too, the kind of burnt taste... a bit like those blue ribbon bars.
