    In North Belfast, ours wasn't Maine, it was Yacht, based in Whitehead. Mine's a Cream Soda.

    Maine deliver to my folks in north belfast...sasparilla! scottish cola! awesome.

    What's Scottish cola? We still had Strike cola, coke and red kola last time I was home. Is it one of those?

    Saying that, I'm still getting to grips with lots of NI delicacies. Vegetable roll? Imagine my delight when I got the equivalent of lorne sausage and had to apply it to a piece wi sauce.

    Gravy rings? As much a disappointment as the veg roll was success.

    Brown lemonade. No bad at all.

    Tayto ingin rings. Cannae get enough of them.

    Apparently Maine are going through a tough time financially at the moment so support your local fizzy drink maker!

    I used to deliver for the 'Classic' bassed out of Lurgan.. I think they went as far north as west belfast and as far south as Armagh. As much as you could drink and about 10-15 inc tips when you were 12 was awesome! (my teeth attest to it)

    Sarsprilla
    Pineapple & Grapefruit
    Rasberryade

    YUM!

    It's red and kinda like raspberry I guess.
    Veg roll was great when I ate meat.
    Gravy rings are awesome if poorly named.
    Brown lemonade is mighty...been a while though.
    Tayto onion rings I can live without.

    You didnt mention potato bread though?!

    Scottish cola sounds a bit like red kola.

    We have that tater bread too but we call them tattie scones. Love them with cheese melted all over the top.

    All automatic, one doughnut at a time. First a splurt of dough which fell, miraculously ring-shaped, into the hot oil (lard?). An underwater chain conveyer pulled it as it cooked to the middle of the transparent vat... where a little stainless steel trapdoor FLIPPED IT OVER! Then it would continue its journey with the other side cooking. I'd stand and watch it do four or five before I got bored.

    I bought a few bottles of these last year, having not tasted them for 30 years... the horror - were they always that sweet? Still the nostalgia trip of it looking sort of similar to beer was worth it.

    Think there is still a bottle in the fridge - wonder how it tastes with smirnoff..?
