Description

Piecing together this puzzle will bring back sweet memories. Can you spot your favourite sweets?. With the new decimal coins jangling in every purse or pocket. Three pence bought a vast range of tempting goodies. However, inflation quickly pushed up prices. So by the end of the 1970s a chocolate bar was likely to be 5p or 6p.

Nevertheless, sweet shop shelves were groaning under the weight of exciting new products. Amongst these brands were. Curly Wurly, Buttersnap, Swisskit, Prize, Double Decker, Ice Breaker, Amazin’ Raisin, Nutty, Rumba, Welcome, Old Jamaica, Texan, Caramel and the chunky Yorkie bar. This range was extended further with experimental variations like a dipped Flake, Caramac with minty fudge or fizzy Spangles.

Years ago Robert Opie began to record the history of brands and products that surround us in daily life. His collection can now be viewed at The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising in London

Features

As with all Gibsons jigsaws, we use 100% recycled puzzle board. FSC paper and work with the best artists from all around the world. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together. In fact, we use the thickest puzzle board on the market.

We’ve made some positive changes to our processes. So you can be sure you’re getting the same great puzzles and know they are kinder to the environment. Not only does the box have a fresh new look. But we’ve used biodegradable clear labels to secure the lid instead of shrink wrap. Reducing our plastic waste. We use vegetable-based inks too. The gloss coating on the box gives extra protection and the puzzle pieces are stored in a plastic bag that can be recycled by most councils.

Because the box is slightly smaller than our previous designs, we need less room to transport our products which reduces our carbon footprint and means you can store your puzzles more easily. We have also popped an artwork poster inside for you to reference whilst you piece together your lovely jigsaw puzzle.
