Jubbly Frozen Drinks

The appeal of a Jubbly was not the drink, but the packaging - it was a tetrahedron - 4 sided, and looked a bit like a pyramid. I must admit I didn't realize they were supposed to be drinks, as I only had them as ice lollys. You cut off one end of the package and ate the ice lolly by gradually pushing it out of the packaging, which was made from a sort of heavy waxed cardboard.

I just looked at the Calypso website, and they now make Jubbly in *rectangular* boxes... somehow it just seems wrong!

    The tetrapacks came out around 1960 with a cartoon tv ad of kids with their cheeks puffing in and out as they sucked on the straws to the jingle "Lovely Jubbly, lovely Jubbly orange drink..." The newspapers put a dent in sales for a while when they published a report which said that the polythene liners might cause cancer

    The frozen Jubbly was the hot and weary schoolboy's choice of refreshment in the early 1960s to be consumed on the long bus-ride home. I could never bite into ice without wincing, but half-frozen they delivered a richly flavoured, cold orange drink. The quirky packaging was a brilliant piece of marketing. Wonder which shopkeeper first thought of freezing them? Genius!

    Jubblys are still manufactured at Calypso's factory in Wrexham and sold in triangle shapes. It's just that several are packaged together in a rectangular box.

    I used to have these on the bus on school trips, because even if you left them long enough to melt it didn't matter - they were still a nice drink! It was best when they were a little bit melted and then they were like slush puppies.
