Keep Calm!

By TrevBatWCC    
Do you remember…
...the Bisto Kids, Camp coffee in bottles, Oxo cubes in tins, Marmite, Golden Shred marmalade with a paper Golly inside the jar on top of the marmalade? If so, you're older than I thought! Wink I used to collect the paper Gollies, and when you got so many, you sent them in and got yourself an enamel Golly badge. Everyone seems to deny liking Camp coffee, but I used to love it. And I still buy jars of Marmite! Smile

Camp coffee - yuk. My introduction to coffee and I've not liked it every since, in any form.
But I did have a metal golly. I'd probably be arrested for wearing it these days though. Grin

I remember my Dad collecting Golden Shred labels, sending them off and getting a little plaster of paris golli*** model in return. Those were the days before the name of the Golli*** had to be shortened. It was spelt with an 'i' and not a 'y' then.
My mum always had a bottle of Camp, but I think she used it only for one thing, making coffee flavoured fudge.

Sadly I have to confess to being old enough to remember all those things too. Never been any good at keeping calm though Smile Lovely collection of memorabilia, Trev.

Golly, we don't see gollies any more! I know why, but think it's such a shame. I grew up with all of these, Trev, and drank Camp coffee for some time until I realised it had a high sugar content. Oops, showing my age.

I still cringe about the last time I was served a cup of Camp coffee in a cafe in Wadebridge, bleugh! They might still serve it there, I haven't been back to investigate. Great shot of all those memories.

I too go back that far Trev, as we too collected the paper golliwogs for not only the badges for the children
but for the little figures too. We still have the figurines.. That might be an idea for a posting one day……
