What about the Cadbury's Milk Tray bar? Like a box of chocolates (6?) in a bar. Think Hammer Ca may have mentioned it already.
Bars called Ice Breaker (similar stuff as mint cracknel?)
Aztec bars & Amazin' Raisin bars.
Toffee Treats.
Fruit flavoured Paynes Poppets.

If you like them, you could try Cherry Ripes. An Australian chocolate bar with cherry and coconut in them ... you can get them here from the Sanza website - Blummen scrumptious!!!
