Shove off, potato features!

AdCampaignFilter: Poster in the London Underground that read "Shove off, potato features!" My google-fu has failed and I really want to know what the product was. Bonus points for a poster I can get my grubby little paws on.

It was mid-1999 and I don't remember anything else about the poster. Sadly, I did not take a picture of the poster. Help!

If no one here remembers the ad, you could try contacting CBS Outdoor, the company responsible for the London Underground advertising.

I searched for Tube ads from 1999 in their gallery, but nothing came up. Only (a selection of) 2007-2008 ads seem to be available.

I most likely wrong but I've got a feeling this was either a campaign for Smash or some other imitation mashed-potato product or some non-potato corn-baaed snack. Tried a bit of googling but that didn't help
