I liked Cream Soda with icecream in it.  I'm also decrepit enough to remember the fizzy drinks coming in stoppered bottles. 'Rinse and Return' and money back.  We called all fizzy drinks 'Lemonade' even when they weren't lemonade.

Fella offered us a wee exotic bit of brown stuff,(thirty bob), 4 of  us chipped in and I pulled the centre pages out of my wee sisters jotter.Sprinkled the tobacco in from some opened up fegs and added the brown stuff.We all near choked and all bar none,missed the big "High". One of the wee team "tasted" the brown stuff and announced that were were tying to toke on an "OXO" cube!

I remember selling it when I worked in the confectioners. Mostly on a Sunday morning with the Lemon Sedlitz powders etc so I assume it helped a hangover but what was it made from and what did it taste like? Any one know?
We used to use it to refill car batteries!

Yes Belle, Kaline & Morphine was taken to settle an upset stomach or the "backdoor trots" .apparently it can no longer be bought over the counter as it was being taken as a substitute by drug addicts....

I remember my granny getting Kali water from the Great Northern lemonade man. I think it tasted rather like soda water but a bit more medicinal!  I can also remember sarsparilla and appleade.   .those were the days!
