Double Agents with some strange flavors like jungle juice. What flavor is that?  And inside the wrapper there was hints on how to become an agent.

Dont remember any of them, but them bars do look nice.  I bet it would cost Cadbury to much to make them now. Walnut whip never seen that flavor bet that was nice to.

I remember the Milk Tray bar but don't remember the Dairy Box bar, I came across it whilst looking for an image of the milk tray one so thought I'd post both. Oh, man, the coffee walnut whip tasted good!☺️

Everything is smaller nowadays, they just can't stop messing with stuff.

Even the 'Walnut Whip' no longer has a walnut on it and is now called a 'Whip'

Bloody ridiculous!

Nuts are very cheap where I come from. They used to be given away free behind the New Penny in Leeds on a regular basis. Usually after 10pm on a Saturday night 😉🤣😂

I loved these. Used to save all the wrappers. In fact I used to save everything that came in sets, now I think about it!

Still one of my all time favourite sweets.

I've always liked nuts, but no longer have the teeth to cope with them O.o

Yes very nice indeed but me also have started to lose one or two over the last couple of years, so need to take extra care of the ones i have left.
