Yes it had the plastic top. You had to push in an indented bit to open it and it always fell into the cheese. It was good as a standby as it had a long shelf life. I've not seen it for a while. I'm guessing that it fell foul of some EU PDO or PGI regulation.Strangly I miss the stuff that you used to get in a cardboard tube decorated in the colours of the Italian flag.
Now that stuff used to really smell of vomit and tasted like it to.
You just cannot get it anymore.
One of the tastes from my childhood.
