Thank you for clearing that up, could you supply any sort of back up to your assertion that it was taken off for anything other than commercial reasons?

As I remember at the time there were a lot of people who enjoyed this advert because it had a catchy tune that everyone would be singing but no one ever thought it would be offensive but then we read things in the newspapers and heard on television  that certain people were objecting to it. 

After that it was a changed advert, maybe some other posters remember the details.

What happened to Rusks, used love a Rusk while sucking mi thumb .

Farley's Rusks and also one called Liga Rusks which tasted like chocolate sponge and custard.


You don't see kids sucking their thumbs nowadays, my right thumb became much fatter than my left!
