    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.

    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!
