Watch the video to see some of our famous food campaigns from days gone by, including our iconic melting middle chocolate pudding, the launch of our first calorie-counted range, and our sizzling summer barbecue ad.
Foil-packed meals, including ravioli in cheese and ham sauce, were trialled. The aluminium pouches kept food fresh and were cooked in a pan of boiling water, so, as was stated on the packaging, there was: ‘One less pan to wash’.
This year saw the launch of our chicken kiev, with its oozy, garlic-spiked butter filling. The product became an instant bestseller and remains one of our most popular dishes.
International dishes were added to our frozen food range, including a selection of curry-house classics, from lamb rogan josh to pork vindaloo, developed with the help of Indian cookery expert Kailash Puri.
The Eighties saw the rise of healthy eating, and the launch of our first calorie-counted microwavable meals. The dishes, all under 300 calories, included fish lasagne and chicken pizzaiola with noodles.
Our iconic Percy Pig was released. Since then he’s become one of our most-loved sweets, has met his wife Penny, and even welcomed a brood of piglets!
We launched Our Best Ever burger, made with specially selected cuts of British beef and bone marrow for extra richness. It was an instant success, and we’ve since launched more Our Best Ever products, such as trifle, and prawn sandwiches.
We launched our most famous advertising campaign, and with it our oozy, gooey melting middle chocolate pudding – still a sweet favourite today.
Valentine’s Day saw the launch of our love sausage. When we shared the product on social media, it was an instant sensation, reaching millions of people who couldn’t wait to have it for Valentine’s breakfast!
