Whatever happened to Rowntree’s Banjos?
They were round chewy sweets in a dark packet – bit like minstrels if I remember correctly and what about a chocolate called “Banjo” it had 2 fingers and was filled with small nutty pieces. Tia
The standard Chocolate version was available in the UK-but when I was 12 (’82) I saw a mint version in Brussels an of course had to eat it …mmm, nice!
Coconut, the original one in a blue packet the other red. The jingle went something like- Banjo, the one for me & you. light & crispy wafer plus roast nut flavour too!!
Chocolate looked like a twix it had nuts in it changed its name to trophy….
Light and crispy wafer with layer of nuts the wrapper was just like a twirl is now and a very catchy advertisement…..banjo banjo the one for me and you etc
