I do vaguely recall Five Boys. There was also the Milky Bar Kid whose bespectacled face did appear on the wrapper of Milky Bars (white chocolate). You can still get Milky Bars, now made by Nestlé but were they originally Fry's?

I remember Fry's Five Boys chocolate bar and even made a reference to it in post number 102. I also used to like Fry's Five Centres with a different flavoured cream in each section. I enjoy a bit of choice and always liked those little variety packs of cereal. For some reason the miniature individual boxes always tasted better than the full-size versions.

Sorry Ron, I didn't intend to hijack your post. Perhaps it was yours that set the subliminal bells ringing.

No need to apologise John. I'm sorry if I sounded stroppy. I didn't mean to. I blame it on too much chocolate in my youth.

We used to have the Mackintosh's chocolate and toffee factory in Norwich which produced Quality Street and Rolos. When the wind was in the right direction the smell was amazing. My uncle worked there and used to give us brown paper bags full of chocolate mis-shapes. They had some of the chocolate badly applied or were bizarre shapes but they tasted great. One of the brands, Caleys, has been revived in recent years.

Norwich sounds rather like York, where I mis-spent three years studenting courtesy of the public exchequer. Depending on wind direction, we would get the scent of Rowntrees (who I think were making Rolos there by then) or Terry's (of Chocolate Orange fame).

Were both cities Quaker strongholds? York was, and I think there was quite a strong Quaker influence in the chocolate industry - Cadbury's were as well as Rowntrees.
