We have a lot of plastic boxes but I wouldn't recognise one now.

One like this was always filled with Kit-Kats, Tunnocks Caramel Wafers, Jacobs Club and various other assorted chocolate biscuits at Mum and Dad's.

I very much doubt it, all Aldi/Lidl/Poundland plastic boxes, but there is, or was, some microwave 'baking' kit that looks similar the that above. Wife used to make cakes in them but that was thirty years ago.
Seen them recently, probably in the attic.

I have loads of plastic boxes but none are Tupperware... You might say all mine are 'clones'.

To be honest, I thought Tupperware had gone the way of the dodo donkey's years ago...

I do remember them from school and think I may have seen some about twenty years ago.

I seem to remember that name in the context of paper glue.

This in Monmouth yesterday, a man cleaning the frontage of a charity shop but the name on the sills reminded me of the one in Brum where mom used to shop when we were kids.

We had a Home & Colonial right nextdoor to the J Sainsbury I pictured earlier in the thread! :-D

Gloy gum was the similar thing which penetrated 99.9% of British Classrooms. lepages was an American Company.

We had Liptons in Petts Wood, they were a general grocery store but they did have their own tea I seem to remember. We also had a Coop store that looked very much like the one at Beamish.

I remember Gloy gum with the same rubber spreaders as on the Lepage's bottles... Forever associated with school... Those plastic spreaders on modern Gloy are just not a patch on the old rubber ones...

Ahh Lipton tea :roll: In all my years of regular overseas travel it was often the only tea available and came in little tea bags on strings with little yellow tags; the tea within seemed to be very powdery...

Not the best at all, in fact bloody atrocious...

Those little Lipton tea bags were a staple in most hotels overseas I visited Peter! I have a funny feeling they were made in Leighton Buzzard...
