Chiko Handy Holder

A very cool promotion item from the makers of Chiko Roll. Send in 5 used wrappers for a chance to win. I sent in 2 lots of wrappers and received 2 Holders, what a cool collectible. These created a bit of a fuss on Ebay, some selling for around $100, realistically I’d say around $60, a great investment. They still have desirability and sell well, and as the years pass they will be even more popular. Thanks Chiko Roll for yet another very nice collectible.

Cadbury CaraMilk Block

In 2018, Cadbury produced the “CaraMilk” Block as a Limited Edition in Australia & New Zealand. The Australian blocks were re-called as they were known to have pieces of plastic from the factory process in the chocolate, therefore making it non consumable.
These 3 packets pictured were the actual re-called ones, the date was from the batches that were possibly affected. It created a bit of a collecting & selling frenzy by those wanting to keep one/some, and others just wanting to taste it. Some blocks on E-Bay sell for $50 ea, those that wern’t in the recall date period.. Caramilk, Yum!

Barnes Castlemaine Rock

Has it really come to the day that Barnes Castlemaine Rock Lollies will cease to be, July 2018 ?

Is this yet another GREAT Australian confection company to go Bye Bye? Ok, so confectionery isn’t what makes this a great country, but the companies that make these sweet treats have been around since the 1800’s, all I can say is Shame!

Let’s hope that this is not true and someone will come and save the Peppermint sweet from extinction. Here pictured is a 10 oz Tin Can of Castlemaine Rock I’ve had in my collection since the 70’s. I hope I have some good news to add to this story soon!!

Vegemite Rare Badge

Vegemite Rare

This lil fella has been with me a long time, I’d say late 70’s.

This Vegemite Badge / Button is a Vegemite promo, switch it on and it plays “Im a Happy Little Vegemite”, and the lights flash. Unfortunately this one doesn’t play the song anymore, it could be fixed, I just need time to look at it, a wire is probably loose. Curious to know does anyone else have one of these. If so, please leave a comment below.

Also pictured is the Cadbury block with Vegemite infused Chocolate..

YUK.. Did you ever try it? I played a trick on some mate kids who visited, I swapped the wrapper and asked them if they wanted some chocolate, the look on their face once they realised was priceless. Guess they wont be asking me for Chocolate again! 🙂

Cleaning Products

Vintage Cleaning Products

“A little dab’ll do ya”, “Your soaking in it”, “Brusha Brusha Busha”, dittys and slogans that sell cleaning products. “Whiter than White”, “Cleaner than Clean” are some of the “advertising puffs” used to sell brand X.

When it comes to cleaning, the kitchen, laundry, bathroom or even your teeth, there is a product out there that claims they do it better than all the other brands!

Streets Ice Cream Cards

Streets Display Cards

I Recently acquired these point of sale display cards (some doubles) in perfect condition. I was told they were given to a primary school from an ex Streets Salesman as a fairly thick cardboard for kids to paint and draw on.

They were stashed away and re-discovered only to be auctioned off as a lot because the content promoted un-healthy snack for kids. Some are already sold out, others there is still a few more to go. Great posters to put aside. These are the ones the go on the large display usually at the back of the Milk Bar counter like the one pictured in gallery.
