Description

Good News is a dessert of mixed chocolates made by Mackintosh that came into production at Norwich in 1960. In popular culture; George Harrison (The Beatles) explained in his autobiography, I Me Mine, that the song, 'Savoy truffle,' was inspired by a box of Mackintosh's Good News chocolates that was being eaten by Eric Clapton. Many of the lines came directly from the varieties of chocolate in the boxes.  This reel includes a series of adverts for Good News.
