Easter Chocolate Inspiration 

It's the Easter weekend and there's little else on our minds other than sleeping and eating copious amounts of chocolate.

With so many delicious varieties to choose from we've cast our minds back to our favourite chocolate ads of all time to share with you - just in case you're lacking a little inspiration!

Milky Way: "The red car and the blue car had a race...."

An 80's advert so good that they reintroduced it to their recent TV spell. We fondly recall our childhood years where the Milky Way adverts instructed us that "They're so light they won't ruin your appetite" so to quash Mother's objections before she'd even had a chance to raise them - how did childhood obesity spiral so, we wonder??

Flake: "Only the crumbliest, flakiest chocolate."
Every girl who grew up in the 70's, 80's and 90's aimed for seductive Flake eating like the gorgeous models on screen.  In reality, you tried to stuff it in your mouth as quickly as possible otherwise it would crumble chocolate all down your shell suit top which was not a good look at youth club disco!

Mars: "A Mars a day, helps you work, rest and play."As a kid, this was the king of all chocolate bars - the one for when you were serious about your chocolate snack. I genuinely believed that Mars contained beneficial health nutrients. A heavy duty day of playing SNES at your mate's house could only be sustained with one of these purchased from the Happy Shopper on your way home.

Milk Tray: "All because the lady loves Milk Tray."
The realisation that life was not like some kind of violence free Bond movie whenever my chocolate desire piqued has been a tough wake up call. The shadowy, yet suave figure of a man so desperate to satisfy his lady's chocolate urge ski's, swims and parachutes to her bizarrely remote destinations to deliver a box of Milk Tray. This simply told me that she was not very careful with her packing and didn't really deserve them in the first place. 

Cadbury's Caramel: "Take it easy, with Cadburys Caramel."
Was this bunny and her caramel smooth voice the oddest chocolate seduction? Mr Beaver certainly approved! Oh, the inuendo is endless. Who cares, we loved the chocolate and ate far more than was healthy. 'Dairy Milk with Caramel' just isn't the same.
