Not sure I've seen an ad for Cadbury's Smash for a while either.

It's not been Cadbury's for quite a while. Currently it's Batchelor's Smash!

It did always seem a strange product for a chocolatier.

Much like when Super Noodles were a Kelloggs product before they were made by Batchelors.

"The Not-So-Late-Show with Greg Mitchell" will hopefully return in some form, somewhere soon.
Unlikely to be on Roch Valley Radio though.

Stay tuned . . .

Ever since the ban of fast food advertising on children's tv in 2006, I have been noticing ITV putting fast food sponsorships on some of their 'family' shows, like Saturday Night Takeaway being sponsored by Deliveroo and The X Factor sponsoring Just Eat.

Mars doesn't put it's brand on their other chocolate bars either. Though, the Mars bar logo isn't the corporate Mars logo, they'd probably use the latter if they did brand them.

Well, yes, that was my point. Seeing the Mars bar logo on Pedigree or Whiskas would be as strange as seeing the Cadbury's logo on Smash now. Seeing the Mars corporate logo on those brands or the Mondelez logo on Smash would not be as strange.

At the time Cadbury also produced Typhoo and Kenco.

Smash definitely was an oddity. Perhaps it was intended to be the first line of many.

We also forget that Cadbury's introduced Pringles in this country under the name Stackers, which failed to gain interest and was shelved until P&G decided to launch the actual version later on.
Shouldn't you be at home?
