Old soft drinks: 9 retro soda brands that have been discontinued in the UK - from Lilt to Panda Pops
Here are some of our favourite retro drinks that are sadly no longer available
Coca Cola has announced that it is discontinuing Lilt. The tangy soft drink, which has been around for 48 years will no longer be available from 14 February and will instead be known as Fanta Pineapple and Grapefruit. Lilt launched in 1975 with the strapline “The Totally Tropical Taste” and was only sold in the UK, Ireland, Gibraltar and the Seychelles. Despite it’s rebrand, Coca Cola have insisted that the drink is still the same, just with a new label.
This isn’t the first time a popular soft drink has disappeared from our shelves. There’s something nostalgic about remembering food or drinks from childhood, but not all of our favourites have stuck around, with many being discontinued and removed from shop shelves, without us even noticing.
From Sunny Delight to Vimto Squeezy and Panda Pops, we’ve taken a look at some of the most popular retro pop drinks that are no longer available. How many of them do you remember, and which would you most like to see brought back?
