knew they weren't a figmet of my imagination

Until the packaging was opened, I was expecting them to be chocolate
cigarettes, rather than convention squares of chocolate in a
cigarette-like box. I bet it took some effort in those days to animate
the boxes "walking" along.

Frightfully pohsh voice that says nessles not NessLay

No wonder us ruff types never got edufercated proper

I thought it used to be 'nessels' but I wasn't sure if this was a
colloquialism. Not my imagination then.

It was definitely Nessels when they had their creamery here in Chippenham.

And I am sure that in the days of The Milky Bar Kid the TV
adverts all use to say Nessels Milky Bar.
