"It's Country Life and it's English too
From the cow to the dairy, from the dairy down to you..."
(can't remember the middle bit)

"You can't get a better bit of butter on your knife
If you haven't any in, have a word with your wife (!!!!)
And spread it on your toast in the morning!"
I remember this version:

There's a grocers's in the town (in the town)
Opposite the Rose And Crown (Rose And Crown)
And on Thursdays they go down and load the van
With Country Life butter from the man (grocer man)

or

I'm a Gnu,
How do you do
I've just moved into the house next door to you
I've lost my Ty-phoo
So let me ask you
Can I borrow some of that most refreshing brew?

The weetabix marie celest ad! Something along the lines of:

There was a ship all the other pirates feared
Even Black-, Blue-, Red- and Yellowbeard
And the captain was as nasty as they come
And never once thought to write to his mum
On the Marie Celeste
Had the meanest crew of pirates ever dressed
Then the bo'sun called from the crow's nest
"There's a ship to the west!"
[he sees that the crew of said ship are eating Weetabix, general panic ensues]
Shiver me timbers! Something somthing abandon ship swim for shore!
It wasn't somethings or ghostly tricks
It was down to a bowl of Weetabix
That's why they found no pirates on the Marie Celeste.

I can't remember the exact words.

There was a similar one:

Robin Hood Robin Hood could be in a fix
Robin Hood Robin Hood spies the weetabix
Should he retreat
Back to Sherwood?
Course he should, course he should, course he should

Marmite - the growing up spread you never grow out of

Twix - the longer lasting snack

Flora - the margarine for men (!)

This is more straplines than jingles though, isn't it?

"Beefeater chips are big as the chips your mother used to make.
There's more potato flavour in every bite you take.
Hearty chips for chaps and so for goodness sake...

Beer at home means Davenports,
Thats the beer - lots of cheer,
The finest malt with hops and yeast,
Turns a snack into a feast

Straight from brewery to your home,
Why collect - We'll deliver
Soon you'll know why folks all say,
Beer at home means Davenports . . . .
