TQ4080 : Lyle's Golden Syrup

taken 7 years ago, near to Blackwall Tunnel, Greenwich, Great Britain

Lyle's Golden Syrup
Lyle's Golden Syrup
The oldest brand in the world was created by Abram Lyle of Greenock, Scotland who set up a refinery here in 1881.

The following explanation of the lion & bes design was taken from Lyle's Golden Syrup web site ( LinkExternal link ).

The “lion and bees” tin was registered as Lyle’s trademark. The design comes from Abram Lyle’s religious beliefs: it’s a reference to a story in the Old Testament, in which Samson killed a lion, then saw that bees had formed a honeycomb in the lion’s carcass. The bible references Samson’s words that also feature on the tin “Out of the strong came forth sweetness”. The logo and design remain unchanged today.
