These things really tasted nice for the first 10 minutes or so but towards the end they started to rock hard, and also had the little comic strip inside made of wax paper with a cartoon and a gift you could send for, normally thought it was in America :)

I have this vague memory of small conical plastic cups, with a stand and a plastic spoon. The cup was full of chocolate. Late 50’s early 60s.

Anyone else remember these?

I've a feeling they were called knickerbocker glorys and modelled on the ice cream sundae. Sweet chocolate and other sweet layers and at the very bottom a small layer of some pink fondant stuff with a sharp taste(cherry flavour?). If we're talking about the same thing I loved 'em.
