Television matures as the country is thrust into political conflict. Lunchboxes keep pace, reflecting the rise of Saturday morning TV and contemporary social values. The Westerns die out, making room for high-tech spy shows and science-fiction series in prime time. The Space Age makes the universe more tangible and by the end of the decade a man walks on the moon. Aladdin, King Seeley and Ohio Art help the nation’s children safely carry lunch to school, with Aladdin and Seeley splitting most of the licensed product character boxes between them. From The Jestsons to Star Trek to The Man From U.N.C.L.E. to astronauts and campus queens, lunchboxes increase in popularity and sophistication of design.
Does anyone remember the lolly called Blackcurrant Rhyme not sure who made it I think probably lyons maid ?
I have searched the internet for images etc and have found nothing, would have been 1960;s 1970;s
Hi Jane We’ve had a look for your 60’s memory through are archive and we cant find anything with that name
Hopefully some one else on Skooldays will recall your ice-lolly
Thanks for the memory
While I don’t remember these (and I didn’t grow up in Britain) I did just spot a fantastic ad for Blackcurrant Rhyme right next to one for another lolly called Cider Gold in an episode of the old series Thriller “File it Under Fear” from 1973, about 4 minutes in. The ad was so distinctive I googled it and found your question!
