I could not stand the stuff! However, everyone else about me loved it. I'm still not a fan. Yet everyone else is. These bottles stood on the tables of all cafes next Tomato sauce and other condiments. They probably still do today, but the labels were more striking back then.
I like the price in old money, before decimalization of 1971. The most expensive at five and a half pennies old money is between two pence and two and a half pence decimal money we use today. It gives an idea of how prices have changed, just since the 1960s.
