where is Goody goody caramel bar?

Goody Goody Caramel Bar is a well-known gummy and chewy candy product from Cadbury Nigeria Plc. It could have been said to be the most popular candy in Nigeria’s confectionery market at one time.

But, what happened to our Goody Goody sweet, as it was fondly called by kids from the 80s and 90s? Why is it not in our markets anymore? Sadly we can’t find it anymore, and kids of this present age are really missing out of its addictive fun and delight.

Let’s reminisce on our growing up, fun-filled moments of masticating goody goody, by taking a quick trip down memory lane.

When I think of my childhood, the first thing that comes to mind is the succulent varieties of candy we had in the 80s and 90s. One snack my memory will never forget is ‘Goody Goody’. It was a yummy, moist, soft and chewy succulent candy that some of us had to trade our erasers and pencils for as kids.

The much fun l had then was chewing and licking out the sweetness and goodness of goody goody, it was mind-blowing and still nostalgic in my mind. Cadbury Nigeria Plc, What happened to our Goody Goody?

  5. Hi Mr Singh. I feel you. I was in Corona school Apapa as well so I can identify with the sense of nostalgia you . I remember Goody Goody . Remember, Samco Milk and chocolate, Banana icecream that was 10kobo? Miki miki and Hip hop sweets? Remember Chinese skipping? Kingsway , UTC and Leventis Stores? My uncle never visited us without goody goody. They used to sell 10 for 10kobo. When it started getting costly it was 8 for 10kobo and we complained so bitterly. Remember a glass bottle of fanta was 10kobo? Now many young adults have never seen a coin in Nigerian currency…
