1960S SWEET MEMORIES TIN 500 PIECE JIGSAW PUZZLE – GIBSONS
During the Swinging Sixties, a new era of sophistication was heralded with After Eight thin mints and then Matchmakers chocolate sticks in orange, coffee and peppermint flavours. There was a growing appetite for peppermint with chocolate, including the new Rowntree’s Cracknel. Other new brands on the sweet counter included Jelly Tots, Tooty Frooties, Toffee Crisp, Skippy, Aztec, Galaxy Counters and Marathon (becoming Snickers in 1989).
Perhaps the most notable of boxed assortments in the 1960s was Lucky Numbers in its funky box, but most people remained loyal to familiar names like Milk Tray (since 1916), Dairy Box and Roses (both 1938).

Winner of the Commemorative and Collectable Gift of the Year Award 2019.
Starting at the age of sixteen with a packet of Munchies, Robert Opie saw the need to record the history of everyday products around us and built up the collection that now extends to all aspects of daily life – toys, magazines, technology, travel, souvenirs, fashion and design.
His collection can now be viewed at The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising. Set out in chronological order in the form of a “Time Tunnel” the museum gives visitors ‘a trip down memory lane’ and a chance to see how the brands around us have evolved from the naïve charm of Victorian times to the greater sophistication of today.
It also reflects the change in shopping habits, the impact of transportation, media, the effects of two world wars and the gradual emancipation of women.
