    Pantherpink reminded me of Soda Streams. They're still around. I saw some machines the other day, and they're still frighteningly expensive. Pink also reminded me of the Pink Panther candy bars, which I will now go out to investigate whether they're still made. I can taste that strawberry candy right now. *Drool!*

    Hi Steve - there are three or four threads on the Soda Stream on here ( Just enter soda stream in Search to find 'em) One of the best is a discussion on flavours -

    https://forums.doyouremember.co.uk/t...ht=soda+stream

    There are also loads of mentions of Pink Panther bars - some pics too - in Defunct Sweets. This time use Search in the thread itself ( top right of each Thread Page above the first post on the page) to easily find all references

    We also used to get a Shop Van - a proper shop in the back of a van, you could buy anything a corner shop would sell and get 10p back on your pop bottles
    My parents used to run a chip van, I was made to work Tuesdays & Fridays in it when I was about 14.
    I remember that it was an old thing that you didn't have to wear seatbelts in and my Stepdad would jump out of the driving seat as we were going along so that I could take a turn driving around empty county lanes.
    I used to griddle a mean cheeseburger and was allowed to eat whatever I wanted.

    Yep! there are several around us. One is called Mortons mobile fish bar - very popular and I always see the other one when i drive through Stoke Doyle. Both vans smell absolutely delicious but I haven't stopped for eats for months. now you've reminded me I'll have to give them a go again. they were good last time i tried them.

    but my 2 favs.....

    the sweet van (VW Camper Van..side door slid open, and an Aladdin's cave of sweets.....favs being Sherbet Fountain & Spangle (fizzy, NOT the Olde English ones!)

    the pop man...sure it was Alpine pop...came in EVERY flavour under the sun
    We used to have a pop man, as you say every flavour under the sun. Dandelion & Burdock always springs to mind. Ours however was called Corona as opposed to Alpine.

    Happy days,
    I remember a mobile chip van at my granparents around 1973, coal fired range which made a bizarre smell with the grease frying.

    We used to have a mobile grocers van, it was a bit like the big UPS vans you see knocking about. i remember an earthy smell from the sacks of potatoes lined up by the side door.
    i Used to buy my suncharm space special flavour pop from there,

    He used to sell all the flavours of pop in the big glass bottles that Ben Shaws used to make at the time in these lovely wooden crates. I remember having to take the empties back to get the 10p deposit charge back.

    I used to spend the summer holidays in Wales,back in the late 70s.They had a chip van,a shop van and a fruit and veg van.Coming from London i'd never seen this before,and when i came home none of my friends believed me lol

    A colleague got an old 50p in his change the other day. Not seen one of those in yonks! We marvelled at its enormousness and I specifically asked if it was a 'hands' 50p as I used to like getting them but it wasn't
