James Bond eats Wilkin & Sons Tiptree Little Scarlet Strawberry Jam in the novel From Russia With Love.

In Chapter 11 of the 5th Bond novel, released in 1957, we get a detailed description of Bond's breakfast habits. Not only the jam is mentioned, but also coffee from De Bry, the Chemex coffeemaker, Cooper's Vintage Oxford marmalade 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 Wilkin & Sons Tiptree Little Scarlet Strawberry Jam

The strawberry jam is Tiptree's signature conserve, a dark crimson luxury jam made from the tiny, rare & intensely sweet Little Scarlet strawberry.

The tiny berries are grown in Tiptree, England and usually no larger than a 1p coin (up to 20mm). Wilkin & Sons are believed to be the only commercial growers of this fruit anywhere in the world today, making Little Scarlet conserve utterly unique to Tiptree.
