  • Alpine and Corona 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.

    This is one of my vivid memories of the seventies. Does anyone else remember these?

          We had Alpine up where I lived back in the 70s, I remember one of the delivery guys telling me a lot of their bottles got stolen as they were perfect for home brew beer !

                  I remember Corona being around until the mid 1980s, with some shops still having the stickers on the window for a few years after.

                  I'm too young to remember door to door fizzy drink deliveries, but my brother remembers them at our first house in Heaton Mersey.

                      Re: Alpine and Corona Soft Drinks

                      up here in north east we had a local brand, Lowcocks, originally based out of Hartlepool.

                      Nice fizzy pop but bloody dangerous, when I was about seven a bottle blew up in my hand and caused all sorts of nerve and tendon damage, appears it was a common occurance ( bottles were not fully cleaned out of CO2 traces causing excess pressure when full ) and thats why the companies like Alpine Corona and Lowcocks died out or at least the return for deposit bottles did.

                        We used to get Alpine, he would arrive in quite a big lorry full of bottles, there was three of us and we were allowed a bottle each, which in them days was a right treat...my favourite was pineapple, but what a selection!!

                        And my Grandad always had Corona lemonade or limeade and we would take the emptys back to "top road"....the neck of the bottle always facsinated me.

                        On the subject of pop does anyone remember a brand in the 80s called Mandora...plastic bottles with a kind of mosaic type design on the label....now this was Rola-cola....

                          We used to have both delivering round our way but my Mum and Dad weren't keen so they used to buy a brand called Ben Shaws or Strike Cola from the local shops.

                          A shop near school used to sell Corona so i used to have a small bottle of limeade with my chips and gravy at lunchtime.
