it was simply great, i bought 12 bottles, 2 dandelion and burdock, 2 cola, lemonade, limeade, 2 mixed fruit, 2 iron bru and of course 2 sarsaparilla. it instantly reminded me of when i was about 5 or 6 walking back up to the shop with my grandad and all the empty bottles.

i'm pretty sure that no one will care that proper pop may be making a comeback. i just wanted to share this

 

this could be the dawning of sober times for Jordan Edge...............

ahh i used to love it when i was a kid and the popman came around. i think the brand we used to get was alpine pop (not sure if they sell that anywhere anymore) and - maybe this is a bit of nostalgia creeping in - it was pretty much the best-tasting pop ever. i was also a fan of limeade, dandelion & burdock and sarsaparilla. on a side note, i always wanted a soda stream when i was a kid and i never had one :/

 

and, yeah - we also used to keep the bottles to get 10p back the next week, or take them round the shop :)

 

so, yeah! sugar & food colouring > alcohol! go j-edge!

lol i love cockles. i also like rollmops but i've not tried jellied eels (although i have had those tiny, little eels, deep fried - not a fan).

 

everyone in school had a soda stream when i was a kid - it was the cool thing to have but my mum just said NO WAI :/  probably a wise move - i'd have got so busy with that fizzy.

 

anyway, things being delivered to your house = awesome. i don't mean like tesco delivering your shopping (although that is awesome, just in a different way). my mum still gets milk and eggs delivered to her door by a local farmer (although she has her own chickens now but they've not started laying yet). we have a meat van where i live - it doesn't call door to door but it comes down the street once a week and it's pretty cheap. i think there's also a veg van, too.

Hmm.  I never had a popman as a child.  I did, however, have a soda stream.  They were s***.

 

I do remember getting cockles, rollmops and jellied eels from the fish van though.  Was never as good as an ice cream.

a pop man? a meat man? we only have an ice cream man in my neighborhood:(

I am jealous!  I want a pop man.

 

and I love that you call it pop.  Is that what the English call soda-pop?  In the states, "pop" is pretty much only said in Michigan and some surrounding areas.

I like swedish pop- Kristall comes in  Apple, Orange, Raspberry, Cranberry, Lemon/Lime, Pear, Black Currant, and Lingonberry...I can only find it in IKEA...go figure

maybe my knowledge of berries is limited, but i only ever hear the word 'lingonberry' in a sentence that also includes 'ikea'...

fish vans are awesome! although being by the sea the seaguls are always about........ :-/

 

crystal, the town used to have a pie man but then he started charging £1:10 for a pie..... no no no. 

 

gregor, Is that what the English call soda-pop? yes

 

Irn-bru is just amazing

i'm a fair bit older than you so it's probably just inflation, imo.
