Who remembers Cavan Cola ? Produced by Cavan Mineral Water Ltd,
It was introduced in 1958 and was sold in shops around Cavan,Monaghan,Sligo,Leitrim
Louth and Meath, I don't think it ever made it across the border.

Was that a bit like the Tayto crisps north and south thing ? I am a big fan of the NI Tayto crisps but I will admit that any time Iím passing through Dublin Airport Iíll buy a six pack of ROI Tayto smoky bacon , theyíre delicious.

Lol not sure of the politics on this,it wasn't that they'd have far to travel,it faded out
some time in the early 90s I think, hard to compete with Coke and Pepsi.

Is that the same Spar opposite Ladas Drive Police base that does the great take out breakfasts ?  :nyam:
If you were getting fed at "Ladas Drive Police base" (Castlereagh) you wouldn't be going anywhere else for food!
