Some lucky kids got a little job with the workers and their tea cans, the job was actually known as "can lad" and they got coppers for sorting out the boiling water and making the brews. All them coppers added up though and they used to do alright compared to the rest of us. can lad often led to an apprenticeship as well.

When starting an apprenticeship and on giving up being a can lad it meant a drop in money.


God help us,
Come yourself,
Don't send Jesus,
This is no place for children.

right on there bert, sometimes can lad was used as a derogatory term as well, meaning the bottom of the pecking order.

I can understand your nostalgia for Fussels Conny Onny condensed milk. It's always disappointing when a favorite product seems to disappear from the market.

If you're looking for a similar ingredient to use in your cooking and baking, you might want to explore the option of milk powder.
It is a versatile and long-lasting alternative. It can be a great addition to your pantry, as it can be used in a wide range of recipes, from baking to making creamy sauces and even as a coffee creamer.
If you have any specific recipes or dishes in mind that you used to make with Fussels Conny Onny, feel free to share them.

Yep - I remember the Conny Onny butties especially....along with sugar butties, tomato sauce butties, salad cream butties etc. Much that I'd love to, I couldn't bear Conny Onny on my sensitive teeth now !
