I think this is tapping into communal memories, we've all done this, somehow it happens instinctively. It's the unrecognised psychological impact of Quality Street.

Congratulations on the GEA Helen - I saw this and was reminded of my childhood - I think maybe many of us have made cups out of the foil wrappers.
