Now I know that nostalgia ain't what it used to be but then as someone posted a while ago, neither are a lot of things, like ice cream. And that got me a thinkin' . Yes siree bob it did.
( I'm watching a Western so you'll have to forgive me )
Over the years I've often thought about a drink we had back when I was growing up. Well it became a drink but it started off as soluble crystals in a small tin. Once we'd removed the metal lid with the spoon handle and pierced the paper seal, we'd add a heaped spoonful of the crystals into a glass of cold water and stir it to give us a lovely refreshing flavoured drink. Usually raspberry but sometimes lemon. Oh but it was good. Like a jug of ice cold lemonade in a Southern US state, this drink refreshed the parts others couldn't reach.
It's name.....Creamola Foam.
This trip down nostalgia lane came about today because I was putting away the contents of my suitcase and came upon a similar product that I brought home from America. I'm sure we have it's like here too as there have always been products on the market that, when added to water, produce a refreshing drink. No not whisky ! Crystal products.
But Creamola Foam will always be the King in my mind, probably because that's all we had back then. It was discontinued in 1998 but I for one will never forget it.
