Tudor Crisps

Recommended Posts

Amazing what you think about when clearing the attic.

I think a Newcastle footballer advertised them long before Gary Linaker and Walkers crisps.

I wonder what this generation will invent or make popular.

One questions 'Are Gregg's still selling their version of Cornish Pasties'

This week in Birmingham they claimed they had stopped production.

I guess I should have put this in a different section but 'Tudor' crisps , I could argue, are history.

Hopefully not so for Gregg's Pasties.

The voice over at the end of ads 2, 3 & 4 is almost certainly James Bolam, so the first ad looks like it's the odd one out.

 

The central motorway wasn't renumbered from A1(M) to A6127 until 1977, so that sort of sets a backstop date on those last three.  I notice the guy who uploaded them isn't at all sure as to the dates.

Oops nearly forgot.

Surely John Tudor was Newcastle Malcolm.

You are remembering the opposition .

Delighted to say I found a Gregg's with what used to be called The Cornish Pasty.

Why do people feel the need to tell lies.

Maybe Birmingham is 'off' Gregg's of Gosforth's hit list for old fashioned pasties.

From The history of the Cornish Pasty:

 

" since 2011 the European Union's rules for what constitutes a true Cornish pasty have been much more restrictive: to be a cornish pasty you must have potato, swede, onion and beef wth the filling containing at least 25 percent vegetables and at least 12.5 percent meat. Most importantly,  the pasty must be made in Cornwall".

 

I wonder how things stand with our very own Bedlington Terrier. How long Before the EU rules state that it must be concieved in Bedlington in order to use the name?

I think Lavery and Northumberland County Council have plans to change its name to Ashington Terrier and provide funding to pay for the change.

      More than 4,000 jobs will be created and another 3,500 safeguarded after the Government backed 18 schemes around the region with £47m from its infrastructure fund.
      The schemes include project to improve town and city centres, put the North East at the forefront of the green recovery and boost key employment sites, as well as creating 1,300 new homes.
      High profile projects such as the Gateshead Quays convention centre and the Aykley Heads business park in Durham have been backed, along with town centre regeneration schemes in Newcastle, North Shields and Bedlington.
      There is also backing for a new landing area for the Tyne ferry at the North Shields Fish Quay, plans to improve the digital infrastructure of the city centre and riverside area of Sunderland, better cycling and pedestrian links around Gateshead town centre and investment in a planned energy park at Blyth.
      The projects are part of the £900m Getting Building Fund which was announced by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in June to support “shovel-ready” housing and infrastructure projects.
      It is hoped the schemes will create 2,253 new jobs, 1,839 construction posts and safeguard 3,551 positions in the North East.
