Cadbury released a variety of special brands and sets of wrappers containing dairy milk bars in the 1970’s. They were always the same chocolate bar inside, but they differentiated themselves by the wrapper’s concept and theme. Cadbury’s Laughs was one of those and each of the six wrappers included a description of a different wacky prank on its reverse. Today, I’ll be giving you a look at the whole set of these wonderful pieces of prank-packed packaging.
I’d imagine that nowadays no candy company would risk printing instructions for a prank, even a harmless one, upon a wrapper. But in the 1970’s life was a bit simpler and a few bumps and bruises were just part of the deal.
Thinking of that, CollectingCandy.com does not endorse nor recommend trying these pranks. These are to be performed only by 1970’s English schoolchildren. Please don’t try them at home!
With that out of the way, lets get to the wrappers and the pranks:
That’s all six wrappers – a full set of Cadbury’s Laughs!
So now you know what British kids of the 70’s were getting up to after episodes of Doctor Who and The Golden Shot (a game show with a gold phone and guests shooting a crossbow – look it up!).
And that’s all for today. See you next time!
