In May 2003 the equity of the Black Cat brand was leveraged into chocolate confectionery – “out of the jar and into the bar”. The Black Cat snacks range are packed with the protein power of peanut butter and the healthy benefits of muesli; which keep the consumer healthy and strong (mentally and physically),”

Others were difficult to find any information on, If anyone knows anything about NOW!, TV, Nosh, Niki, Inside Story, Mint Flavoured Creme, Damascus, or Milk. Please comment below and I can add the information to this blog post.
