Remember those massive bars of chocolate Woolworths used to sell? 5kg of the stuff - eat one of those and you'd float home...
2002: Woolworths - This is the Woolies we know and love - and giant chocolate bars are a rare thing these days. Just feast your eyes on 4.5kg Toblerones and 5kg Dairy Milks! (from the Christmas UK "Vintage Christmas Catalogues" photo album)
1978: We had to begin with a musical Woolworths ad - and spot all that obsolete home entertainment equipment!
Things are a bit slow at this stage of the Christmas Run-Up - it is still September after all! - so we're going to show you all sorts of old Christmas ads in the meantime.
Time for the rash of festive flavours - you'll be able to get a mince pie flavoured gin this year.
Basically christmas in a glass
