Non-toy ad Tuesday: vintage food and drink offers… which one would tempt you?

I really like Star Wars. So I’m going to choose the Hi-C promotion. I know I would have just rocked that baseball cap and T-shirt back in the eighties!

Coming soon to an arm near you…

But hang on… this plain chocolate M&M’s quartz watch is pretty cool too! Maybe I should choose this?

USA. New Marvel Universe. 1988.

WOOAAAHHH!

Who can resist the lure of throwing a plastic parachute-soldier from the bedroom window of the top floor!? Thanks Krema Surprise! Decisions, decisions…

Mom, mom! The dog just ate my Roman Centurian!

Talking of surprises, Kinder has always had cool little toys and collectables inside their chocolate eggs (I admit, some awful ones too). This ad is not really a promotion as Kinder always included a toy. But it fits very nicely in this post 🙂

I’m not such a Nutella fella

Nutella’s okay. It goes quite nicely for me on a baguette – then dipped in coffee. Miam miam. So, hmmm, maybe I should choose Nutella chocolate spread and claim my AstĂ©rix mini-books?

The decision is final…

I’ll stay with my first choice. Star Wars and Hi-C wins. However, if M&M’s plain chocolate had run with the baseball cap and tee offer then I would have been a totally super-happy bunny.

So, over to you… which would you choose?

And if you’re not partial to any of the above, what would be your favourite food/drink stuff promotion?
