So this is our family story I touched on recently. My mum had discovered the newly opened Body Shop in Brighton’s North Laine. My Grandparents and Uncle lived miles away in Nottingham.
These were the early days when the labels for products were handwritten.
My lovely Uncle Rob (who is just about to be 80 by the way!) had visited us for a holiday and my Mum sent some Body Shop goodies back with him for Gran to try, One of the goodies was a pot of Carrot Cream.
Rob couldn’t understand why Gran had left the black pot of cream on the hall table for him to take home. She thought it said Car Rot Cream! Rob is massively into doing up cars. She saw it was from the Body Shop and thought it was a car body repair place. The handwriting was a bit wobbly.
And that’s the name we call it still!
