Treets

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

I fondly remember Treets. Caramelized Peanutty loveliness in a yellow bag. Trying not to crack your teeth on the oft found clumps of peanuts that had stuck together was a real test of mettle. I was sad to see them disappear from our corner shop.

    Similar to Marathon changing to Snickers Minstrels were originally Chocolate Treets came in a similar brown bag while the toffee one were blue and peanut yellow I think that's where the confusion over the "melt in your mouth not in your hand " slogan and it was used for both products

    I loved Treets, I still remember the yellow bag and brown writing! Is this a figment of my imagination, or did Treets make a shortlived comeback in the 90's as I'm sure I bought a packet, but they didn't taste the same. The peanut from the Revels bag is very similiar to Treet's peanut.

    'Treets milk chocolate melt in your mouth not in your hand' was definately a Treets logo, I remember it well.

    Treets are back in the shops but can only be bought in Sainsburys and I think it's for a limited time. I've already been stocking up :)

    Does anybody remember Toasted Torpedos. My wife does but I can't find them anywhere. Apparently they were marzipan/coconut flavour and rugby ball shaped.

    anyone remember a very small chocolate covered fondant - wrapped in coloured foil with an outer cover of clear crispy paper rolled at each end like a christmas cracker... These were about 3" long and i think the same width as a pencil. They were around in 1976 ish.. around the same time as strawberry fondant ladybirds and milka chews...mmmmm

    reminds me of a joke at the time ; what do you do if you get a peanut stuck in your ear? Pour in some chocolate and it comes out a treet. nobody would understand it these days, but it always made me smile! gem jan 2009

    They might have had a coating like minstrels, but that was the mintrels slogan, and I don't think it was ever used for treets.
