Apart from Marmite, (which I adore ) the one thing that I remember clearly, from my very young childhood, is Trex.
Trex featured highly in my mum's kitchen... and in her baking. (Trex was a vegetable fat.)
She would put on her apron and get baking.
This little book was one which she used regularly:
To whip up wonderful things!
But it was not just that!...
Enter Tubby Trex:
Tubby Trex was the star of the show and a great marketing ploy.
I doubt the name would even be allowed nowadays, for fear of offending someone a little 'tubby'!
I have the money box!
Each one came with a secret code that you had to remember, in order to twist off the lid!!
And there was good friend Tubby, dancing with the family;-)
But wait..there's more! ;-)
Inside every Trex pack there were cards, which my mum collected for me...very nice cards they were too ; double the size of the cards you got in the tea packets.
And she stuck them into albums for me.
Which, all these years later, every now and again, I get out and thumb through.
Good old Trex!
And good old Tubby!
And good old mum !
