Sorry but I don't believe the photo. I think it may have been "photo-shopped"..

We had Bon Accord soft drinks in Scotland. Same idea. Just looked it up and they closed in 2000 but have recently relaunched still as a family business. Cream soda was my particular favorite. Thanks for posting the original photo!

You got a whole bottle? By gum you lucky buggers! Father'd cum 'ome after a 28 hour shift and we'd get a mug of pond water with separate straws. Eee 'ow we used to treasure them straws.

Definitely! Hard to find these days. Ask for it and 99% have never heard of it.

Vimto was a close second...
