Was it Heinz Sandwich Spread ?? " dubbub"

 

I first remember it about 1950/51 when I was much younger and lived in Swallownest (1940 - 1967)

 

Not seen it for years and years, until about 4 months ago when I found it in a supermarket here which sells UK and imported foods etc (non-muslim food)

 

Still tastes exactly how I remember it tasted many years ago

 

But there was also Shiphams Pastes, they manufactured many different ones

 

Also one which came into the shops about 1950 in small white pots - first was a Shrimp Paste - manufacturer was Van Smirren

 

No recollection of the tv advert though even though we had a tv from about 1947/8

 

Hope this information helps you in your search

 

Here = Malaysia
