        Brilliant memory. A friend and I took a bottle of this on our long summer holidays walk to the next village. It was quite an adventure at the tender age of 8! We searched the pavements outside the newsagent for ages until we found enough pennies to pay for the cherryade. Happy days!

          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....

          I reckon i remember the brand Mandora.I think i used to have orangeade or something like it? Alpine made one delivery never saw again?

                I used to get a man delivering Alpine and Dayla pop in a Lorry think they were 3 for 1 was really nice stuff too, miles better than the no Sugar stuff you get in all the Supermarkets these days.They also did a mixed fruit fizzy drink that tasted very similar but nicer than Vimto.
                Does anyone remeber the Unigate fizzy pop you could buy off the Milkman you had all different glasses of Pop on the label playing musical instruments, singing etc.

                    We had the Alpine pop lorry and another one - a local firm I think called Sykes'. Our pop always came from the shops, though and this was always from the Morpeth-based company 'Waters and Robson'. It still came in the glass bottles with the 10p return.

                      We had an Alpine pop van and also a one called Gray's. I prefered Gray's as a kid but always liked Alpine Pineappleade!!!!
                      Heaven knows I'm miserable now.

                              Look at the difference in the CORONA bottles though! In the TV Ad they are slender necked and later they were bigger as in the picture one of our forum members have posted!
