Hi everyone,

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but I have been Googling away and stumbled upon it.

My name is Stuart and I have recently started working for Dunns Food and Drinks who own the Curries, Krystal Klear and Five Star (formerly Robertsons) brands, amongst others. We are looking to get some feedback on the drinks and their availability and would be interested to hear your thoughts on them.

I've started a Facebook group for Curries Red Kola here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Curries-R ... 0436500144 and we are currently looking to re-brand and involve the people that drink it a bit more in the decisions we make.

It's a bit of a shameless plug but Id be happy to help anyone who's having trouble gaining access to our brands.

Cheers,

Stuart

Seem to recall the label carried a depiction of a polar bear shagging a cola bottle while exclaiming "Sheer delight!".

one of the cafes in cupar when the original owner had it had a promotional pola cola in his window and it was exactly that a pola bear shagging a cola bottle and the logo sheer delight and that was in the early seventies though i think he had it in his window in the late sixties as well

that was in the days when you only drank lucosade when you were unwell or took a bottle when visiting someone in hospital nowadays its promoted as an energy drink though to me it still tastes the same as it did when it came in a bottle wrapped in cellophane and could only be bought in the chemists

Got any of the Barrie's works, Robert?
It was near the Lord Darnley Pub.
My sister worked there in the early 70's.
I always thought their Iron Brew was better than Barrs.
He advocated for the weak against the strong, the poor against the rich and labour against capital.

I don't taste anything different either - must be marketing ;)

I remember lugging these empties down to the chemists as well - not that we had a drinks tray in the room and kitchen - Grannie just liked liked them.
You didn't buy them outright you paid for refills. Again environmentally sound and a good arm exercise taking them back and forward.

I once worked with a surgeon who hated Lucozade with a passion.
Prior to any ward round you would have to go round the patients lockers and hide it.
If he saw any he would launch the bottles up the ward shouting about how crap it was. ::):

Soda syphons I remember well but for some reason i always connect them with illness for upset stomachs. I can mind my mother always saying to take soda water for an upset stomach.

that still goes on today to some extent gas bottles for caravans or gas heaters are bought outright at first purchase for the gas and bottle but subsequent refills its only the gas which is paid for
during the war accumulator batteries were used to power the radio and these were exchanged in a simlar manner
