    McVities Gingernuts
    I’m a Jamaican ginger grower and I very proudly say,
    I grow the finest ginger in the world today.
    I picks the best and packs it and McVities comes to buy it,
    Then they bake it into gingernuts you really ought to try it.
    You snap into a McVities gingernut — you tastes it too
    Jamaican ginger — the world’s best — is waiting for you.
    The grower (Norman Beaton)I knows it … I grows it! you don’t think your ma would give you anything but the best.

    I’ve actually been trying to find that ad for a little while. A few years back there was a BBC1 Daytime show called The TV That Made Me And part of it was the celebrity would talk briefly about their favourite commercial and Lenny Henry (if I recall) chose this and actually was able to sing the entire commercial by heart.

    Still haven’t found it...

    The TV That Made Me felt too ironic when it came to how celebrities remembered the past - I am certain that the BBC had done these sorts of programmes in the past without that. I am not surprised that Lenny Henry liked it.

    As for the tagline mystery, I am thinking about products being advertised that "grows" - something to do with gardening or lawns, perhaps?
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).
