Wagon Wheels. As a student in the late 50's I had a short part time job at the Weston's factory in Slough. Loved them until I saw how they were made and have never eaten one since.

Cross & Blackwell. My landlady when I worked in London in the mid-60's was in the team that carried out 10 o'clock quality control tests on their soups. 10 o'clock tested soups was their advertising jingle back in the 50's and prior to meeting her thought it was just that. Didn't really explain why they tested them at 10 o'clock though!

Baked Beans. Love any brand of baked beans but always add a splash of spicy red tomato ketchup before cooking.
I too have visited food factories in the past doing work for them, amazing what you see but what you don't see won't hurt you :lol:

Worked for a very well known supermarket over one Summer whilst in VIth Form. Pal was working at a well known supplier of foodstuffs at the same time and they supplied our branch. He said that the initiation ceremony in that factory was to strip the new boy naked and then throw him into the coleslaw mixing vat.

One night that Summer he rang me at my parents' house to say that he'd slipped an incriminating note into one of the tubs of 'slaw destined for our place the following morning. Had to rummage through about 80 tubs to find it.

If anyone has worked in food retail/wholesale, they'll know that all sorts of shenanigans goes on. What you turn a blind eye to might not kill you.

Btw, Tesco Beans with tabasco for this palate. :thumb:
