    Oh yes, I remember it: it was a rare treat. And it was definitely giggle inducing.

    Hi Dina,

    Your post has just reminded me of the last time I ate Caramac. It was in a cookery lesson at school (I remember it was called Home Economics lessons, in those days). We had to create our own pasta dish - I decided to make one with Caramac grated on top (I didn't really like Parmesan!), and I called it ......

    Cara-mac-aroni-cheese! LOL

    My version might not be to everyone's taste and I don't think many chefs would serve it in their restaurants - but I think most people would agree Caramac smells much more pleasant than Parmesan does! LOL .... and perhaps Heston Blumenthal would put on his menu, as 'Crazy Kayleigh's mac & cheese with a sweet-smelling twist' LOL

    Hugs,
    Kayleigh x

    Unfortunately, I think 'Old Jamaican' chocolate bars have been discontinued Dina - but, being the expert about all things sweet, Sugar Daddy Barry might know? If it has, it's a shame, because it is probably a cheap way of getting the giggles! - much cheaper than buying miniature bottles of rum anyway!!

    Hugs

    .... and its just popped into my head what Barry's response might be (because he always thinks far more logically than I do!!) ...

    "If you want to get giggly eating chocolate Kayleigh, why don't you just buy a box of the ones for adults, that are filled with liqueur??!" LOL

    Old Jamaica chocolate was launched in 1970 but it was not a success in the UK therefore short lived. Kayleigh would not be giggling as the raisins were only rum “flavoured”. As a lover of chocolate and liqueur I like to make my own desserts containing these ingredients along with cherries. I have decided to serve this at Christmas (apologies for mentioning the C word so early) so thanks for the prompt.

    Love,
    Barry
    Iím going to do this even if it kills me!

    And what ever happened to Cadbury's Snowflake bars??

    I appreciate they weren't from the 1970s, but I was in nappies for the first year of that decade and too young to eat chocolate for the subsequent years

    Love Ellie.

    Thanks Barry, for the update about old Jamaican chocolate
    (and so it must have been the sugar rush that made me so giggly then! LOL).

    For some reason Barry, I had already envisaged you might be a fan of cherries (I wrote the rest of this post, before I saw yours!).

    And if I did buy a box of 'liqueur' flavoured chocolates Dina .....

    I'd share the rum chocolates,
    between you and me!
    Hopefully we'd enjoy them,
    while having a giggle or three!

    Those filled with Baileys are very creamy,
    so, of course, I'd offer them to TC!
    The Cointreau chocs are very orangey,
    and might appeal to Sheila, Hayls or Debbie?

    The ones as sweet as Cherry Brandy,
    are for Sugar Daddy Barry!
    But Cognac, the other type of Brandy,
    might be more Doug's cup-of-tea?

    Lynne, Sarah or Ellie might be a fan of rest? -
    Some are filled with the flavour of Amaretto or sweet-Sherry,
    And others taste more like spirits,
    including Gin and Whiskey.

    But if it's Jack Daniels (made in Tennessee),
    then CC might be a strong possibility?
    Sending sweet-wishes,
    to everyone in this fabulous forum family x

    Love and hugs to you all,
    from me, Kayleigh x

    Oh, Kayleigh you are so good at writing. This has really cheered me up. Talking of caramac my husband use to love it. I don't know if you still get it?. My husband is now diabetic, so he has to stay away from the chocolates. My favourite is the good old fashioned kit Kat.
    Love Sheila x

    Hi Sheila,

    I think Caramacs are still available but instead of being manufacturered by MacIntosh's, they are manufactured by Nestle now.

    I think your choice of chocolate treat is 'purrr-fect'!

    Love Kayleigh x

    P.S....
    - What type of candy is never on time?
    ChocoLate. LOL

    - What is a monkey's favourite cookie?
    Chocolate chimp. LOL

    - Why can you only buy one type of chocolate at airports?
    Because it always has to be plane. LOL.

    Barry, the rum i Old Jamaican may have just been flavouring but the thought of doing something naughty, like underage drinking would have been enough to get most young girls giggling!
