Corona soft drinks

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

"Every bubble's passed its FIZZical!" yelped the Ernie Bilko-voiced Head Bubble in the cartoon ads for this knobbly-bottled orangeade. Very popular in the '70s. The idea of devouring an entire army of bubbles and then belching out their remains appealed to the juvenile mind.

    I was brought up with corona, from an early age 4+ I used to go out with my father from the Mile Cross Lane Depot ( Norwich) on door to door, he was then made supervisor at Gt Yarmouth , then Manager at Bury st Edmunds...I worked retail and door to door filling in when gaps appeared....I remember the Cambridge warehouse empty apart from 4 doz bottles of lime cordial during the 1976 heatwave , personally delivering two pallets of cans to a chip shop in Saffron Walden, offloaded off an artic onto a comer then straight to Saffron. It's a shame they no longer exist per se....although the name Tango still exists

    When I used to stay with my grandparents in South Wales during the school holidays in the 1950's they used to get me a bottle everyday from the pop man , I also recall they had Golden Wonder crisps in the early 1960's before the rest of the UK..
