    Would this be what you are after?

    Wikipedia seems to think that you can purchase it in Poundland.

    Thanks arty, It does not look the same packaging, but then they are always changing.
    Maybe I will give it a try?

    If it was the old Brooke Bond Dividend, they started calling it "D" and redid the packaging to reflect that a couple of decades ago IIRC. As artyclarty says, you can still get it online, and I've picked it up in places like Home Bargains fairly recently too.

    Even if you manage to find the brands that you seek with similar packaging to that you remember, there is no guarantee it will be made in the same places and /or to the same recipe as it used to be.

    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chivers_and_Sons

    Chivers marmalade is listed on amazon.co.uk but judging by the delivery time it will probably be coming from overseas.

    Also on ebay.co.uk - from Germany.

    That reminded me of the advert: I could do with a D.

    It was the tea that I used to buy.
