Swisskit

Can anybody remember a chocolate bar - I think called a Swisskit - I seem to remember the advert was 'would you risk it for a swisskit?' Do I remember correctly?

Yes, I remember Swisskit, the TV ad featured a guy skiing and rescueing something ( probably a Swisskit bar ) from an avalanche I think.
The last shot was of him sat in a chair with his foot and leg in plaster eating the Swisskit bar.
"Would you risk it for a Swisskit ?" is how I remember the tag line at the end too.
The bar was very flat and long, made of a brittle musli, covered in a thin layer of chocolate.
Old saying was
'Risk it for a biscuit,
Willing for a shilling'

but I don't know where it came from

Thank you tonymclark and bustergutt - glad to see not going mad!!!! I have used it as a 'catch'phrase' for 25 yrs + and nobody has heard of it. Thank you for the link
I think there is a Swisskit wrapper in Robert Opie's Packaging Museum, which is close to Portabello Road in London.
If not there, it could be in his 1970's book, both are well worth a look.
