Andrex Luxury Toilet Tissue Twin pack. Soft Green; Warm Orange; White. Toilet tissue being a respectable term for 'bog roll'. Almost everyone used Andrex, which cemented its position with the 'soft, strong and very long' jingle, and lots of adverts featuring small children on the lavvy. 200 labrador puppies later, they changed their jingle, and threw it all away by refusing to embrace recycling. Proof that any empire can crumble.

Robertson's Jam 12oz (340g) jar. Apricot. Robertson's plumped for the 'Golly' motif in the 1920s. It seemed like such a good idea at the time. Inevitably, the shit hit the fan. Bizarrely, whilst gollies were banished from children's books and stuffed toy emporiums as racist, Robertson's corporate neck was saved by a vast global army of 'collectable' collectors, who regarded an attack on the small figures as a personal attack on their own ethics, and fought back. The jam makers must feature more than most in MBA essays on whether all publicity is good publicity. Ever since, major brands have been a lot more careful. Of course if aliens land and look like the Smash Martians, Cadbury's will probably be screwed. (James Robertson & Sons).
