  • Joy says:

    Loved this new quiz. It never ceases to amaze me what rubbish I remember and yet I can’t remember to turn the oven off. Keep ’em coming Michael.

  • Sue P says:

    Oooh loved this one – much better off with TV adverts as these were just the right era for me. Just lurve your work!!!

    Can’t wait for the next one.

  • Roy Tilbury says:

    Bring back the old adverts, please.

  • john child says:

    Great, adverts used to be entertaining and funny, it’s a shame as most were better than the programs

  • Angie says:

    Love it. Keep em coming 👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  • Eleri says:

    “They peel them with their steely knives” Still love that advert. My all favourite…RWhites Lemonade

  • Gabriella says:

    I enjoyed that and I’m now humming some of the themes. Good old days!

  • Danny says:

    It’s Frothy man!

  • The Rogers’s says:

    Blimey these old adverts are great. They clearly worked as I remembered so many of them!

  • Liz says:

    Loved that, thanks for doing it

  • Hoshi says:

    Re-record not fade away – this was my favourite ad, I loved it!!

  • Alec says:

    Only one wrong so not too shabby. I could recite most ITV adverts during the 70s and 80s.

  • Paul Melrose says:

    Loved this quiz! I used to watch adverts like they were programmes when I was a kid.

  • Sandie Kelsey-White says:

    Love it made me really dig deep in the past

  • Marina says:

    Me and my little sis nominated our mum as a Stork SB supermum in the 70s. She got a certificate signed by Bruce and a stork SB apron. She’s still got the certificate!

  • Mrs christine jackson says:

    Remembered most of them

  • David says:

    Old ads refresh memory, making it “as fresh as a mountain stream” frothing with menthol!

  • David Gilmour says:

    I loved that quiz, it certainly brought back some happy kid memories!
    Thank you Micheal

  • HAZEL YOUNG says:

    Great quiz didn’t get them all, but brought back some old memories

  • Boo says:

    13 out of 15, what a blast from the past that was. Loved it!!

  • Deborah Shilleto says:

    Tell em about the honey mummy lol

  • Rozi says:

    I was terrible. I only remembered a couple of them. Could be down to being booted outside to play instead of watching tv. Mum wanted to watch tv in peace. My brother and I would always ask questions about what was happening. Mum eventually got a vcr. Even then couldn’t really take in what was being watched while sitting poised and concentrating on being ready to hit record button once ads finished (Mums lavy/tea making break).

  • Jan b says:

    Great quiz thanks Michael!

  • Sharon says:

    Great fun, brought the memories back! Thank you 😁👍

  • Jacqueline says:

    Grate quiz

  • Karen says:

    Only got the car one wrong!
    Surprised at how much I remembered!!

  • Graeme says:

    13 out of 13, no sign of Alzheimer’s yet………..what was the question again.

  • Len says:

    Great! I won’t sleep now lol. 70 next month and I still remember ITV. The days of real entertainment.🥴🥴🥴

  • Alan Boney says:

    So sad, I got two wrong, sob, sob. I really am getting old, sob.

  • Jill Flatt says:

    Anyone notice the theme of highly processed, sugar and chemical laden products though?! It’s incredible any of us survived to tell the tale!
    I’m still trying to remember the advert for the “Amazing Raisin” Bar. Can anyone help?

  • Jules12 says:

    I enjoyed that, only got 2 wrong and one of those was a mistake answer. What funny things we remember!

  • Vanessa says:

    “A finger of fudge is just enough to give your kids a treat. Its full of Cadbury’s goodness and very small and neat!”

    Anyone remember the rest? Remember the ad with the dodgy looking boy in it but didn’t like the sweet.

    • Peter says:

      “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 believe that’s it.

  • Kaf2362 says:

    Love the quizzes. Only 1 wrong this week. Always room for improvement. One of the adverts was my favourite and I still love it.

  • Bob says:

    Memory exists, at least for the present!

  • David Matthews says:


  • Ruthie says:

    brilliant. I love this quiz. Can’t wait to see the next one

  • Nancy Townsend says:

    I just finished the quiz but instead of getting a score it just took me back to Benny Hill. Oh well.

  • Jo says:

    Great quiz. Really had to dig deep into my memory. Haven’t lived in the UK for years so these pages make me smile. Thanks

  • Lesley says:

    I was useless but it was fun seeing part of the old ads again.

  • Horatio Orrison says:

    Another fun quiz but down to an 8 this week. A couple surprised me that lucky guesses bolstered the score. Thanks a lot again and keep’em coming, please!

  • Tracy says:

    Brilliant. Love the quizzes. Really takes me back

  • Wendy says:

    Really enjoyed the quiz and got 11 right. They don’t make them like they used to. The smash advert being my favourite of this batch.

  • Sarah says:

    Can’t wait for the next one as we want to get them all right ! Loved this one

  • Julie says:

    Full marks, but I don’t remember watching that much TV when I was younger – it must be the power of memorable adverts (good or bad).

  • Carol says:

    Thank you Michael for a breath of nostalgia and silliness in this age of doom and gloom. My partner insisted on answering the Benny Hill question and got it wrong! What a doughnut! Keep ’em coming, please. I wonder if we’ll get a “Christmas Special” (hint, hint).

  • Brian says:

    ah – got the Slimcea and Nimble mixed up -should have gone with my first instinct

  • Linda says:

    Oh yea! The things I did, saw, and read 40odd years ago, I remember perfectly. What I did yesterday, or said I’d do today, I’ve forgotten already!

  • Tubbyhubby says:

    Brilliant quiz once again!
    You got me with the “Re-record, not fade away” though – always trust your first instinct! 🙂

  • cheryl says:

    I watched to many adverts as a child then lol
    every one’s a fluffy one!!

    So many memories from a time when we only had 3 tv channels – thank you

  • Engine driver says:

  • Andrea says:

    Hi Micheal,
    I’ve just recently taken the time to read your recent blogs ,
    They really are a joy to read.
    You really have a knack of remembering Yesteryear😝

    I generally always bought your sweets🤣 Mmm

    The memories & smiles,
    of the little girl in me
    came back😝Thank You👍

    Loved you little Quiz with the old adverts to see & guess😊 Great stuff😊
    Surprised myself how many I got right,
    Maybe that shows my age😝 they don’t seem to make adverts like they used to either.
    Thanks for the fun.

    I linked to my Twitter for others to reminisce 😊

  • Eleanor Beavan says:

    My dad was a milkman for Unigate for 25 years, these ads certainly bring back the memories.

  • Ben H says:

    Great quiz. Memories are flooding back!

  • Linda says:

    Got a lot wrong obviously don’t watch enough adverts or my memory bad!

  • Sonya says:

    Clearly I wasn’t paying attention to adverts when I was little 🤣🤣

  • Rita says:

    Love these quizes, it’s amazing how much trivia is locked in our brains. I can almost see and here the adverts just by looking at the pictures. I like to think it’s a good memory, really it’s just an age thing.

  • Paul Middleton says:

    Great to have the nostalgic quizzes.
    I was a child of the 60’stairs & 70’s, my big heroes were John Noakes & Johnny Morris. Do you remember Roberts Robots?

  • Morgan says:

    13/13 I don’t know whether to be proud or ashamed!

  • Jo says:

    Oh my word these ads took me right back and I’ve loved this quiz.. so appreciated.

    Keep the nostalgia alive! X

  • Lesley says:

    New to this….anyone remember this,
    lip smakin,thirst quenchin, ace tastin, motivatin, good buzzin, cool talkin, high walkin, fast livin, ever givin, cold fizzin, ………

    Think that was the right, friend had it printed on at shirt, but that was about 45 years ago.
    they don’t write them like that anymore?
