1980s Shopping Basket
1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle

£14.00

As the variety and range of brands grew during the 1980s – which included the fun taste of Fiendish Feet – the growing needs for keeping trim became more evident. Less noticeable was the new requirement for a barcode on every pack. Now arriving on the breakfast table were Crunchy Nut, Fruit ‘n Fibre, Farmhouse Bran and Brancrunch. Your milk could have been poured from a new dumpy shape bottle with an advert on its side. And for those on-the-move moments, Jordans created the concept of a cereal bar.

Amongst this ‘naughty but nice’ era of the Eighties was the counter balance of F-plan Brancrisp, Shape milk, Lean Cuisine meals and a range of crisp breads. Other notable launches included Chicken Tonight, Covent Garden Soups and environmentally friendly Ecover, but some brands were short lived, like Noodle Doodles, Quattro and Wizard yoghurt mousse.

Starting at the age of sixteen with a packet of Munchies, Robert Opie saw the need to record the history of everyday products around us and built up the collection that now extends to all aspects of daily life - toys, magazines, technology, travel, souvenirs, fashion and design. His collection can now be viewed at The Museum of Brands, Packaging and Advertising. Set out in chronological order in the form of a “Time Tunnel” the museum gives visitors ‘a trip down memory lane’ and a chance to see how the brands around us have evolved from the naïve charm of Victorian times to the greater sophistication of today. It also reflects the change in shopping habits, the impact of transportation, media, the effects of two world wars and the gradual emancipation of women.
