These are like hens teeth!! Been after a box for years nice to see there are some kicking about still!! Brings back many fond memories
I just remembered. They dedicated two cakes to celelstial events that were happening at that time. Hale Bop was the comet we could all see with the naked eye and Explosions on Jupiter was a nod to Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9. It was hoovered up by Jupiter as it moved through the solar system. Jupiter's intense gravity tore it into over twenty pieces. Each impact estimated to have released more energy than all of earth's nuclear weapons combined. That's every impact of which there were at least twenty.
The ‘Twin Thunders’ were a lucky find as also been after a pack for some time.
That’s really interesting and typically great marketing from Black Cat at the time.
Hale Bopp was last seen in 1997.
Comet Shoemaker–Levy 9 broke apart in July 1992 and collided with Jupiter in July 1994, providing the first direct observation of an extraterrestrial collision of Solar System objects.
