Who remembers Dunn & Moore's Solripe? And what about Zing and Cresta?
Not sure about the others Kid, but I do remember Cresta 'It's Frothy Man'! I can still taste it- yuk! it was very frothy, and very sweet. I'd imagine the current sugar police would ban it immediately if it was around today : D
Hi Scoop, I remember my mate Craig's dad. In the early 70s he was the local 'pop man'. He delivered crates of Corona to lucky customers doors. There was always Corona to be had at Craig's house... he was a very popular kid back then. I also remember Cresta, Kid... but Corona cherryade was my personal tipple.
Great memory Tony. I remember the Corona pop man delivering to my Grans too. That all seemed to stop with the rise of the supermarkets. Happy days though.
I remember the Corona wagons, but only richer kids got those delivered. We had to make do with corporation pop!
.... IF we were lucky!!!!
Ha, ha! come on John, it wasn't that dear, although once it was gone it was back to corporation pop for me too. ; D
Lowcocks,dandelion and burdock.
Aha! Another fizzy drinks maker, Tony. Don't remember them too well in the North West but I believe they were legendary in the North East - gluggy, gluggy!
Also remember finding the occasional empty bottle, washing it out and taking it back to a shop for 3d to add to my pocket money!
We all did it Andy, a nice bit of easy cash : D
Anyone remember the Alpine trucks (a milk float I think) that used to drive round the streets once a week (Thursday after school back in the 70s where I lived in York) and sold Orangeade, Limeade, Lemonade, Cola, Cherryade, Dandelion and Burdock (what the heck was that?), Raspberryade, Pineapple, Cream Soda ?
Yorkie, the Alpine trucks delivered up here in the North East too and it was PineappleADE that it carried. Tried it once, but it seemed like there was something missing from the recipe.
I think I remember those trucks. Are they the ones that supplied fizzy pop in big glass 'jugs' with two handles on the top?

The Alpine trucks in York just carried bottles IIRC. Happy days. Shame about all the fillings in my teeth I had to have through drinking pop and eating those sugary sweets! :)
Maybe I'm mistaken then Yorkie, but you're right about our sixties tooth decay.I could have been invited to the dentist's staff dance for the amount of time I spent in his chair!
