Frank Cooper's Vintage Oxford Marmalade is part of James Bond's breakfast in the novel From Russia With Love.

In the 5th Bond novel we get a detailed description of Bond's breakfast habits. Several brands are mentioned in the breakfast paragraphs, including coffee from De Bry, the Chemex coffeemaker, Wilkin & Sons Tiptree Little Scarlet Strawberry Jam and Norwegian Heather Honey from Fortnum's, Queen Anne silver, Minton china.

“Breakfast was Bond's favourite meal of the day. When he was stationed in London it was always the same. It consisted of very strong coffee, from De Bry in New Oxford Street, brewed in an American Chemex, of which he drank two large cups, black and without sugar. The single egg, in the dark blue egg cup with a gold ring round the top, was boiled for three and a third minutes.

It was a very fresh, speckled brown egg from French Marans hens owned by some friend of May in the country. (Bond disliked white eggs and, faddish as he was in many small things, it amused him to maintain that there was such a thing as the perfect boiled egg.) Then there were two thick slices of wholewheat toast, a large pat of deep yellow Jersey butter and three squat glass jars containing Tiptree `Little Scarlet' strawberry jam; Cooper's Vintage Oxford marmalade and Norwegian Heather Honey from Fortnum's. The coffee pot and the silver on the tray were Queen Anne, and the china was Minton, of the same dark blue and gold and white as the egg-cup."
Ian Fleming, Chapter 11, From Russia, With Love (1957)
 

About Frank Cooper's Vintage Oxford Marmalade

The first batch of Frank Cooper’s marmalade was made in 1874 by the wife of Oxford shopkeeper Frank Cooper, Sarah-Jane, in the family kitchen.

The Oxford Marmalade eaten by Bond and still made today is inspired by the original Sarah Jane Coopers 1874 recipe, made using a dark seriously intense coarse cut Seville orange marmalade.
