1971: the Mars selection box

FLASHBACK to 1971: the Mars Christmas Selection Box offers a packet of Treets (chocolate-coated peanuts), a Twix, a Mars Bar, a Marathon (now called Snickers), Milky Way and a tube of Spangles. It came with free Optical Illusion Cards! to make today’s non-super-sized confectionary look larger.
