very famous add bit like r whites lemonade, thew catch phrase is almost used in everyday conversation by some people :) mind you it wasnt the thing i was trying to remember, the choccy bar i was looking for was about the same size, i seem to rememeber the wrapper being red and it was chocolate covered and inside was a brittle sweet filling, damned if i can rememeber what it was called though, any ideas anyone?

TV Ark is the place to go for old adverts and programmes. :D

I have an idea that SwissKit wasn't around for very long. :?

No, it was a chocolate covered museli bar and one of the adverts had a bunch of explorers (like Scot of the Antartic) stuck in a tent and one of them says: "I'll risk it for the Swisskit".

:lol: I was just Googling and one link took me to the Swiss national football team's kit. :lol:

Actually - I never particularly liked sweets or chocolate and if I had money for such things I used to buy salted peanuts.

Oh Caramacs! But they don't have anything inside them, I'm afraid. Just caramel chocolate. And still yum!
