Acorn Mints (anybody else ever seen these?)

Post by GordonSJ » Tue May 23, 2017 2:53 am

Hi,
So I thought I would share a little item I kept (forever) probably now around 30 years old.

Acorn Mints:

I got them at an Acorn User show (could not tell you exactly which one) but I think the show was at the
Barbican Exhibition center. (so had to be around late 80's early 90's

I have a pack of these too (I thought they might have been the only surviving pack until I saw your pic!).

Was given them by an ex-Acorn guy, I've a feeling he told me they were from the launch event for the BBC Master...
