Just to confirm that "co-op ham tea" is indeed no mondegreen.

I cannot remember the name of the sitcom, but I do remember in the early seventies there was a televised sitcom (based in Yorkshire)in which one of the characters was an elderly granny whose catchphrase was
" I'm not having HIM, I'm having the Co-op. They do a nice ham tea at the Co-op".

"HIM" was the local undertaker, whom she disliked for some reason.
