I used to think the early Cresta ads were hilarious. I can't find them on YouTube. The later ones that are there weren't so good. They changed the product too.

Tiffin. It's nuts and raisins, biscuits too, and creamy milk chocolate all the way through.

Amazing Raisin: It's amazing what raisins can do

Russ Abbott can still be seen on 'Drama' in the later episodes of Last of the Summer Wine (weekdays at 7.20pm). By that time the series was on its last legs, but he was one of the better things in it.
