Not a familiar sight in Britain, at least not in my little world.
Could it be an unsuccessful attempt to launch another US brand in Britain, just like Cracker Jack?
Or perhaps a shot at the Australian market?
Not in the same league as Wrigley's, although I do remember the brand as a youngster.

Double Bubble vending machine

I recently purchased this Fleer Double Bubble vending machine, in working order but needs the metal surround part for the viewing glass, and was wondering if anybody remembers these.

Re: The Repair Shop BBC 1

Strange colour, I've never seen any Aero advertising from that era (on the product, shop front, vendor, even allwin) that was not the dark brown we knew and loved as kids.

Re: Jamiesons Skill poker machine

Got the machine back from the tv repair shop and some progress has been made, as now some of the playing card lamps are illuminated, though keeping more than 10 lamps on causes one of the 3 fuses to blow, the machine did come with some information about this, which mentions the checking the bulbs, t...
