Talking of yummy things… anyone remember Peanut Treets ?

Alongside Chocolate and Toffee Treets, Peanut Treets was available in a handful of European countries from the 1960s up to the late 80s when they were replaced by Minstrals, M&Ms and Relays.

This 1972 ad from France shows the simple yellow packet design of Treets (later rebranded as Peanut Treets).
