Miner 49ers I remember Miner 49ers. I also remember how the TV advert jingle went. It goes.... 'In a cavern, in a canyon, were the miners by their mine, and what they liked was 49ers which they are most of the time. It was the taste of spring onion what tasted so devine, which made the miners eat 49ers, and so did Clementine.' I personally adored the snack, a l also liked KP Wigwams, Burton's Piglets, Smiths Farmer Brown's and Smiths Horror bags.
