Cresta Drink

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

"It's frothy man!" So the ad said. Cresta was the orange flavoured, probably the sweetest most plastic-tasting drink you can imagine but as a 7 year old being dragged round Clacton market, it was probably the best taste in the world. Cresta was opaque and thick and frothy - God only knows what was in it!

    Pineapple was my favourite, followed by blackcurrant and then lime. The strawberry one was ok. Orange was yuk. Cream soda one not even worth remembering, lol

    Cresta lemonade isn't the real thing - even if it is made by Coke! Real Cresta from back in the seventies was thicker than normal pops, a super day-glo colur and so full of additives that you glowed in the dark! Fabulous stuff, how I miss it ...

    Cresta was wierd really, those disgusting lurid colours and being frothy rather than fizzy. I can't imagine what they used to put in it.

    The reason I'm on this site is that I searched for "Cresta" on the web... Why??? Because last night... I poured some Tesco's own brand - Orange flavour high juice into a glass to dilute with white lemonade! Nice!... However... I got it mixed up with the Cream Soda... And hey presto! I was sent back to the 70's in a flash! haha... THATS how they made Cresta!!! Have a go... Its true!! hahaha Tom Liverpool
