    Watneys, my old uncle used to say, “don’t take the piss out of watneys, it needs or the flavour it can get”. Probably a common joke in the 70’s. 
    Had to read that a couple of times and then realised changing 'or' for 'all' makes it quite funny...... and probably true

    The joke of the time was "What's the connection between Watney's Red Barrel and making love in a punt?  They're both fucking close to water".

    Similar to Red Barrel in the taste stakes was "Big head Trophy bitter, the pint that thinks it's a quart".

    Frankly all draught beers in Britain were piss until the Campaign for Real Ale exerted it's influence in the 1970's.

    You name it, the standard was appalling.

    I have a cup of hot Bovril most days - excellent source of salts and sugars
    Bovril has never been the same since BSE...

    I was surprised to find that you can no longer buy Shield soap, my armpits need this to get rid of my hideous funk. Over the years some of my favourite groceries have disappeared such as Start breakfast cereal and Vesta Chow Mein (fair enough it was horrible) has anyone else suffered from discontinuation of favoured requisites, or is it just a sign of my old age.
    oh no, when my wife kept saying Sainsbury's didn't have it I just thought it was sold out but you are right they have stopped making it, back in 2018 !! Not a happy bunny finding that out.
    What did you expect?
    Every start has a finish.

    From memory the original Smiths crisps which included the blue salt bag predated the introduction of "Ready Salted" crisps.
    As I recall it was a little bag that was twisted closed, in other words not a perfect seal.
    Sometimes moisture got in and your salt would be caked in lumps.
    I guess Smiths phased them out when ready salted came in, but the beauty of the salt bag was you could choose how much salt to add, or none at all.
    When Walkers reintroduced them with their nostalgia marketing the salt was in perfectly sealed square blue packs, which I am sure was progress, but they bumped up the price and called them Salt & Shake.
    I like plain crisps occasionally and often discard the salt pack.
    Another thing with the old Smiths product was the frequency you found multiple salt bags in the packet!

    I thought they just changed the name in UK to match the name used in the rest of Europe.
    Didn't realise they changed the product.

    Start was my favourite cereal as well. RIP.

    Phileas Fogg tortilla chips are sorely missed as well. Absolutely pissed all over Doritos and any other ones you can get now days that don't even taste like tortilla chips.

    Watney's Party Seven was dreadful.  It got you into a party though. 
    Then no bugger could open the can.

    I think you mean keg rather than draught.  There was lots of good draught in the 1970s - Youngs, Fullers, Everards, Home Ales, Marstons, Eldridge Pope down on the south coast., and many, many more.  Camra helped to stop the rot but the good stuff was still out there.

    I loved them too. M&S have got a flavour that is very similar but I can never remember which one it is.

    We was always a very thirsty group so often forced to resort to a screwdriver and hammer if I remember rightly. On the wine front a nice bit of Liebfraumilch for the ladies was the preferred choice (in a screw top bottle naturally).
