The ‘80s Vibe: More than Just TV Shows
The 1980s: a decade that boasted bold colours, striking prints, and the transformative sound of new wave music. But it wasn’t all about the gritty plots of Coronation Street or the unfolding drama of EastEnders. This was the era when our favourite TV moments found a sweet partner, with Duncans Sweet Shop being a cherished memory maker.
Friday Nights: Pop Charts and Jolly Ranchers
Imagine this setting: A cozy Friday night, your living room echoing with tunes from Top of the Pops. As artists take over the screen, a Jolly Rancher stick adds zest to every lyric, every beat.
The Ultimate TV & Candy Pairings
The anarchic vibes of The Young Ones felt just right with the zing of a Bonkers Fruit Candy. And as the Doctor embarked on intergalactic quests in Doctor Who, fans found the crunch of a Skor Bar a fitting companion for the TARDIS adventures.
Then came the Gold Blend adverts. Their heartwarming melodies weren’t merely tales of romantic intrigue between neighbours; they were moments waiting to be paired with the indulgence of Whatchamacallit Bars.
Everyday ’80s: A Confluence of Candy and Culture
Blackadder and its comedic genius? Best paired with the vibrant hues of Nerds. Each suspenseful episode of Tales of the Unexpected? Perfectly punctuated by the unexpected delight of Runts.
The exhilaration of pedalling a Raleigh Grifter, the rhythm of MTV, the mind-bending allure of the Rubik’s Cube, and the cinematic wonders from Blockbuster – all these iconic memories seemed even more vivid with candies like Bubble Yum and Reese’s Pieces adding flavour to the experience.
