Full of Peppery Goodness

Oops, something's gone wrong on Planet Dom

“They’re full of peppery goodness, and very small and neat…”

Dom didn’t have to continue with the rest of the song, I knew it off by heart. It was the theme tune to the ‘A Finger of Fudge’ commercial which aired in the UK in the 1970s and ’80s.

On challenging him as to the supposed peppery content of this favourite childhood confection, he was unflinching. No matter how often I tried to convince him that “They’re full of Cadbury goodness” he refused to be swayed. To this day he maintains it must contain pepper and it’s one of many mis-heard song lyrics he has in his repertoire.
