Mystery of the Orange Shopper: Solved(ish).

The Orange Shopper (close up)

“Thank you for your e-mail.

I can confirm that there was a non UK promotion in Spring 2005 that used
bikes to promote the launch of a crunchy cream bread spread. This product is
not available in the UK.

The bikes were sourced from

Unfortunately we are unable to advise how one of these promotional bikes has
come to be in the UK.

I hope that this information is helpful.

The Orange Shopper

Here’s a picture of that Orange shopper/folder I was talking about in yesterday’s post. I’ve not seen one like it before. It’s probably come from one of the longboats on the canal, note how it’s covered in mud from the canal path. Having said that, a lot of people ride down the canal path from Trowbridge, or more likely Freshford or Avoncliff.

This is also a good chance to try out this facility of blogging from my Flickr page, directly from the photo in question. If it works, it saves me faffing about with links and uploads.

Additional Information

Right, zooming in on the original photo shows a decal saying ‘Ovomaltine’ this is no help with the providence of the bike because that’s the original and correct spelling of the product known as Ovaltine. The colour of the bike is the same as the Ovomaltine website though, curiouser and curioser!
