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

Eiffel Tower Lemonade Crystals Drink

Foster Clark Ltd. was the drinks company in Maidstone, Kent that produced this drink. The bottles were very distinctive and are sold today as vintage. They were presumed to hold liquid crystals rather than drinking liquid.

    Fondly recall Eiffel Tower and Creamola. Boy did they fizz ! Suspect a taste now would be disappointing. As children we loved very sweet things. I may ,of course, just be a jaded oldie. Pete Barnard

    oh yes, the best lemony flavour ever, tangy and just sweet enough to stop the taste buds shrieking. Why, in this technologically advanced age(!) can it not be re-created

    A bit before my time but I would have loved to try this now, but sadly like a lot of yummy childhood things on here, the nanny health ministers wouldn't allow it and if they did it probably wouldn't taste the same. Sigh!

    I have a Pewter tankard dated 1958 & presented to the top salesman by Foster Clarkes for the most sales of Eiffel Tower during the sales campaign for that year

    Yes this came up in conversation the other day as in the 50s/60s I remember this as a lovely summer drink. the other thing we talked about was Creamola foam which came in a tin and fizzed up when added to water. Has anybody any memories of this?

    just caught this link ..... I remember Eiffel Tower lemonade crystals from late 50s early 60s made by my grandmother and it was the best soft drink ever made! Yes please someone revive this drink as it would be a big hit again. From memory you poured boiling water over the crystals in a jug, stirred until they dissolved, wait to cool, and then bottled the syrup, add water to taste just like you do with squash, gorgeous. I remember that in addition to lemon flavour, which was a taste all of its own, you could also get orange flavour. Mmmmmmmmm

    just found a bottle with the ingredients on the lid for the crystals.

    I found an old empty glass bottle of Eiffel Tower Lemonade (Crystals) in the garden of my last cottage in Sompting. Strangely enough, it is also printed with Meidstone. Is this a former spelling for Maidstone, Kent or might it be the engraver's error? Does it help to date it? Dart

    Amazing what you can find by googling! I looked this up after telling my boys about my granny's kitchen - she had one of those stand alone units with the flap down enamelled work tops and petal-shaped adjustable vents. On a high shelf she had a small bottle of Eiffel tower lemonade crystals, which she sometimes let me taste, though I don't remember her ever making lemonade - I think she used them to make lemon meringue pie. That would have been early 1960s. Great to find other folks memories.

    I can remember drinking this as recently as 1974, so production must have carried on for some years after the Fosters closure. The final bottle as I remember it was cylindrical in shape, with a large screw cap. Lovely stuff. Neil, Bath
