Stocking Stuffer: Rum n’ Raisin Candy Bar Bliss

Words by Jason “J-Rockaz” Orford


Despite the recession ’tis still the season to be jolly. If you’re participating in spreading holiday cheer and all that mushy stuff, why not use a fancy candy bar as a means to that end? On that note, allow me to re-introduce the Cadbury brand of Rum n’ Raisin chocolate bars (seriously, they are shaped like bars of gold bullion). My personal favorite is the original Old Jamaica bar which was launched in 1970 as a special blend of milk and plain chocolate with rum-flavored raisins. Perhaps they were trying to appeal to the booming West Indian migration and the emerging UK reggae culture/scene my uncle was a part of back then. Indeed, I grew up on this stuff via special overseas deliveries from my family.
