Just remember, it's an anagram of "vomit"   All of the ingredients that made things taste good when we were kids are illegal now 😞 

I did , at a holiday camp in the mid '50s my dad bought us cream soda with a lump of vanilla ice cream in it.  Must have been god as I still remember it after about 65 years.

There's none of this to be found in Thailand though....

My favourite was Dandelion and Burdock. Tasted like Coke Cola with bitumen in it.

I never liked Cream Soda 😞 

American Cream Soda was a favourite of mine. Couldn't wait for the pop man to come round every Friday teatime.

My earliest memories of Tizer were walking back from the match at Leeds Road (Huddersfield). Passed an old broken down cottage and the old guy inside had set up a trestle table with dozens of plastic beakers filled with Tizer on it. 3d a beaker. Didn't sell anything but Tizer.

 

Never even saw a bottle of Coca Cola until I was 16.

Irn Bru has had the sugar content reduced, so it no longer tastes like it did. Vimto is very popular in Saudi Arabia during Ramadan and it tastes much like I remember it. I haven’t tried Tizer for a very long time, and hardly ever see it. What about Tango, don’t see much of that either?

They don't even give you a penny back on the empty return bottle anymore.  I used to get into the Saturday morning Odeon flics with three of them!

Bloody Scottish skinflints!!

One for us Brits.

 

Was in Tops yesterday and came across tins of Tizer. Not seen this since my long distant schooldays. Looks like it's been jazzed up for the modern day.

Bought one just for the memory. Memory playing tricks. Tastes disgusting. 😬 Seem to remember it tasting better.

 

Now I just need to keep an eye open for Quality Street for Christmas.

Yes, it's not like the original. Way too sweet.
