Alpine Soft Drinks

The Alpine Soft Drinks man used to come round in a sort of converted milk float every week (Wednesday or Thursday), and sell these street by street back in the mid seventies. Alpine Soft Drinks were closer to Corona than Cresta, but they came in the most vivid colours and left you hyper all evening. Alpine Soft Drinks came in the usual flavours - Orangeade, Limeade, Lemonade, Cola, Cherryade and of course Dandelion and Burdock.

    Started as a Saturday lad in 1980 at the Stoke depot, then full time van lad, then driver. George Hunter was depot manager, Brian Harrison was supervisor. Some of the names in can remember after all these years, Alan and John Harrison, Brian Campbell, Dave Craig, Steve Ball, Tony Jenkinson, Dave Cresswell and Fitz. Hard work, happy days and the meagre pay even managed to buy me my 1st Ford Capri. I remember cycling home with an enormous xmas turkey in my bag when the strap broke and it bounced down the middle of the road before getting squished under the wheels of the local bus.

    This Has Sent Me into Nostalgia Mode!, I Remember them being Delivered to Us in the Dudley/Sedgley/Coseley Area of the Black Country/West Midlands in the 1970's, The Limeade was Vivid Green in Colour!, My Favourite was Probably the Pineapple & if they Sold it now I would Buy it unless it is one of those Rose Tinted Glasses things where everything seemed better then Like Fish & Chips or Xmas TV!.
