Default Blow Down Those Blues

Thanks jonesingjay for starting off the May quiz. Here's the next question.

When John Lennon was a schoolboy he would often go to the sweet shop or candy store.

What was his favourite sweet?

The sweet's name has two words and from old adverts I see the first name is a registered trademark.

The manufacturer appears to be always the same but you don't have to give me the manufacturer to get the point.

Could it be a Hershey's Milk Chocolate Bar?

Or is it an English brand?

No, not Hershey's.

You couldn't get those in Liverpool in the fifties.

In fact I still don't think you can get them in Liverpool!

And, yes, we're looking for an English brand.

The factory that made these sweets was situated in Acton in London.

That's the one. A hard toffee with a fruit layer, usually banana. With a palm tree on the tin or wrapping paper. Why a palm? I've no idea !
