The delicious Bounty chocolate bar was introduced by Mars in … 1951.
It has a coconut filling enrobed with milk chocolate (sold in a blue wrapper) or plain chocolate (sold in a red wrapper) and is one of the few chocolates to come wrapped in two individual halves.
Advertising has tended to feature tropical beaches with coconut palms.

Finally … there is another rather more tenuous link between Bounty and 1951 … so I do hope you’ll forgive me for bringing it up! ( The link I mean … not the Bounty!)
There is a very famous novel called Mutiny on the Bounty (1932) which has indeed been the inspiration for several films of the same name.The co-author of this novel was James Norman Hall and he died in … 1951.
