After doing three throwbacks it’s starting to get a little challenging to think of products and brands. ….but hey I like the challenge….So here is this week’s throwbacks.

Toffoluxe!(see featured image)  Tjoe!  This brand come a loooong way!  In the 80’s and 90’s Toffoluxe sweets were the most delicious thing ever.  In true Mzansi style, Toffoluxe has been used as a term of endearment with folks calling their partners “my toffoluxe”.  The product has been repackaged and still available at retail stores.  If you’ve never tried them, you better!

Jungle Oats

“If you want to win, you must eat jungle oats”.  Who remembers that TV ad?

Ouma Rusks 

 

I love the story behind this brand.  They make a good product and I love that the factory is based in Molteno, in the Eastern Cape.  The brand has been around for a long time!

Bokomo Weetbix 

I love the story of Bokomo, if you visit their site and get to read how the brand came about you’ll be inspired and also get to know the meaning behind the name.  It has come a long way!  Now Weetbix, it’s such a great product and trust me I am not being biased because I worked for them.  One can never go wrong with a cereal with fibre.   After all these years, Weetbix is still a grocery must have item.

What do you think of this week’s throwbacks?
