How much I would like some OK sauce on my fried egg sandwich.

Is it still made?

Has it been made in the last forty years?

I don't think I have seen it since about 1965.

A dollop wouldn't half be good on my fried egg sandwich though.

Oh Sharon If I lived nearer to you I could give you a new bottle of OK sauce..Only bought two bottles last week from the Chinese Supermarket in Leeds.
When I saw a bottle in the window I thought like you."Not seen it for years."

So try you chinese supermarket.

Its still in production but only available through specialist shops - the major chains stopped selling it donkeys years ago

Tiptons Brown sauce and their ketchup now rule in this house. Both very tasty, Brown sauce just the right spiciness and the Ketchup is far tastier that the 57 varieties!

Daddies' for me, at the mo,

Daddies is a very different animal from OK. They each have their own unique place in the culinary sphere.

I am into Sharwood's mango chutney at the moment, even if we do have some of my own. It just had to be Sharwood's.

Geeta's mango chutney is even better than Sharwoods.


Sharron Report 5 Nov 2013 15:30

It's what I have the taste for at the moment.

LOVE Sharwoods Mango chutney. Part of my childhood, every Monday after the Sunday Lamb, dad would make a Lamb curry mmmmm.

Am partial to a drop of HP myself, last week picked up 3 various sizes,
one was manufactured in Poland, one in Holland and the other in Spain,
we don't manufacture it in the UK anymore.
