Yes, they do exist, Tea Cards and others that were NOT issued by Red Rose! Let's talk about them here. I have started a list of other tea card issuers. I won't say it too loud but there are some other great cards out there besides Red Rose. Shhhhh! I don't know if I feel right saying that...

Please let me know what groups you would like to see here...

 

Tea cards, Cereal cards, Sweets cards and more

Brooke Bond was Red Rose's parent company back when the tea cards were issued. Brooke Bond sold tea and issued cards in Great Britain, Ireland, Canada, the US,  South Africa and Rhodesia. The only two Red Rose / Brooke Bond holdings were in Canada and the US. Other Brooke Bond companies are listed here as well as many other non Brooke Bond card issuers. Let's not forget the dairy issues, sweets, cereal and cigarette cards too. Meat? Yes, meat!
