Smarties (see featured image) – This one is for my cousin, Sis Mmampho. She LOVES herself some smarties! The interesting about them is that you get people who only eat certain colours.
One would find Niknaks at every street corner sold by a street vendor. The brand has been around for a while, we even have people who dress up like the Niknaks man. DJ Sbu comes to mind!
Nestle Condensed Milk
The 70’s and 80’s generation are ones that made tea for for their grandmothers. Grandma’s loved their tea with condensed milk. One would laugh at the stories that people would tell about how they stole the condensed milk from the can. The thing is, it was bound to be eaten. If it was not you then it was ants.
I remember Bull Brand from when we didn’t have a fridge. Bull Brand together with pilchards served as a meaty protein source. I ate too much of these growing up ended up having allergy spots on my body. Other than that, one has to respect the brand. I bet you’ll find it in every household shopping list.
Spar-Letta Pine Nut
There was a radio advert on Umhlobo Wenene (Radio Xhosa) back in the day….”Uba awuyazi iPine Nut, awazinto tu!” (if you don’t know Pine Nut you know nothing at all” Hahaha!
That’s it for this week. Which iconic products would you like to see featured?
