Love You More Than Chocolate Trivia Quiz


I love all you delightful quizzers, who play my quizzes and send me notes, but more than chocolate? I'm not so sure about that. If you love chocolate as much as I do, can you match these slogans to the products they advertised in the UK?

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Full of Eastern promise

Answer: Fry's Turkish Delight

Fry's Turkish Delight has been available since 1914, made by J S Fry & Sons originally, and keeping the name even after Fry's merged with Cadbury's in 1919. The 'full of Eastern promise' slogan has been around for many years, with television adverts featuring pan pipe music, which doesn't seem particularly Turkish, and lots of sand dunes. Miraculously, the chocolate never seemed to melt despite the desert setting.

A little goes a long way with these bars, as they are quite sweet and sickly.
2. A taste of paradise

Answer: Bounty

The Bounty bar was introduced in the UK by Mars Inc. in 1951, and consists of a coconut filling surrounded by chocolate - originally just milk chocolate but with a dark chocolate version introduced later. The 'taste of paradise' slogan has been used since at least the 1980s and adverts usually involve a lot of sandy beaches, palm trees and tropical islands.

As for the bar itself, I detest coconut, so can't comment on whether they taste of paradise or not.
3. P-P-Pick up a

Answer: Penguin

If in doubt, choose the alliterative option! Penguins consist of two chocolate flavoured biscuits, sandwiched together with a chocolate cream filling and covered with (you guessed it) chocolate. They are made by McVitie's, who are primarily biscuit manufacturers. The 'P-P-Pick up a Penguin' slogan was introduced in the 1980s in television advertising.

The Australian Tim Tam biscuit is very similar to the original Penguin, supposedly being an 'improved' version. I couldn't possibly comment on that assertion, though.
4. They grow on you

Answer: Roses

Made by Cadbury's, Roses chocolates are a variety of individually wrapped chocolates with different fillings. The shops are full of boxes of them in the run-up to Christmas (from about September, it seems). The 'Roses Grow on You' advertising campaign was fronted by the comedian Norman Vaughan in the 1960s.

Fillings include fudge, hazelnuts, coffee cream and strawberry cream, with the latter flavour seeming to be much more numerous in the boxes I receive. In any event, they are the ones left in the box when everyone else has chosen their favourite.
5. If you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit

Answer: Club

The full slogan was 'If you like a lot of chocolate on your biscuit, join our Club' and began in the mid 1970s, running for twenty years or so. Club biscuits were originally made in Ireland and consisted of a biscuit bar covered by a generous coating of chocolate.

The original range has greatly expanded and now includes biscuits flavoured with orange, mint and fruit. A biscuit and lots of chocolate - what's not to like?
6. Just enough to give your kids a treat

Answer: Cadbury's Fudge

Created in 1948, when it was called Milk Fudge, the chocolate bar consists of a chocolate covered fudge bar. The full version of the jingle is 'A finger of Fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat; A finger of Fudge is just enough until it's time to eat; It's full of Cadbury goodness but very small and neat; A finger of Fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat'.

I'm not sure that eating between meals is recommended, but the creator of the jingle was none other than Mike d'Abo, who replaced Paul Jones as lead singer of Manfred Mann. I suspect he'd rather be remembered for 'Handbags and Gladrags'.
7. Smooth on the outside, crunchy on the inside

Answer: Dime Bar

This bar is a Swedish creation and consists of a chocolate covered solid caramel, hence the slogan of being smooth outside and crunchy inside. The bar was supported by a rather bizarre advertising campaign in the 1990s, fronted by comedian Harry Enfield, who claimed to prefer armadillos to Dime bars, as they were 'crunchy on the outside and smooth on the inside'.

In many countries, the bar is now sold as a Daim bar, but we traditional Brits don't like change, so, to us, it's still a Dime bar - not that I can recall seeing one recently.
8. It's not Terry's, it's mine

Answer: Chocolate Orange

The good old chocolate orange - Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without one of these. Originally made in 1932 in York, by the chocolate company Terry's, the chocolate orange consists of wedges of orange-flavoured chocolate stuck together to form an orange shape.

The advertising campaign referred to in the question featured Dawn French, who actually looks as if she might occasionally eat the product she's selling. The slogan referenced the maker's name, which is also used as a first name, with Dawn also, at other times, advising us 'Don't tap it, whack it'. Getting into a chocolate orange can be challenging!
9. Why have cotton when you can have silk

Answer: Galaxy

The Galaxy bar, known as Dove in some countries, was introduced in the UK by Mars in 1960. The slogan 'why have cotton when you can have silk' was first used between 1987 and 2000. It was trademarked by Mars in 2012 and used again as the strapline for adverts running from 2013 and featuring Audrey Hepburn - brought back to life by computer wizardry.

Galaxy was the second best selling chocolate bar in the UK in a 2014 survey. Mars has brought out a white chocolate version, which seems to be available only in the United Arab Emirates at the time of writing. It's just as well, really. It's already hard enough to choose a chocolate bar from the many available.
10. You're spoiling us, Mr Ambassador

Answer: Ferrero Rocher

Created by the Italian firm of Ferroro, these chocolates have been available in other parts of Europe since 1982. The chocolate consists of several layers, including nuts, a wafer shell and hazelnut chocolate (Nutella), covered with chocolate and more nuts and individually wrapped in gold paper.

An advertising campaign of the 1990s involved platters of the chocolates being offered to guests at an up market party in an Embassy, hence the slogan quoted in the question. The campaign, according to my research, was entirely serious but has been much parodied and mocked as being ridiculous. Whatever the truth, the advertising paid off, at least to the extent that most people have heard of it. Whether it sold more of the chocolates, or put buyers off, I'm not qualified to say.
