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.


It's interesting how many food brands are owned by companies that also make very different products. Kellogg's now owns the Pringles brand and Pepsico owns Walkers via Frito-Lay.

Notice ITV have been using ad slots on C4 quite a bit recently for their "More than TV" promo with Sir Trev. Not unusual nowadays to see a programme promo on another channel using ad time but first time I've seen one of the main terrestrials use ad slots just to promote themselves.

The Pepsi-Walkers link is evident in the promotions/competitions that run on Pepsi Max and Doritos simultaneously.

Just like how CITV always advertise Nickelodeon, CN and Disney shows during ad breaks.
