Possibly the most disturbing thing I've seen typed out on this forum and there have been many such 'things' :shock:

heroic post of epic proportions. only thing I've read on this forum that genuinely made me LOL. Sir, I salute you for the inappropriate and deadpan nature of the post. You have skills.

I think we all learnt something today.

^ But I already knew the foul nature of hobo jizz, I have learnt NOTHING!!!

EDIT: Having re-read the whole thread, just wanna bring a couple of things up.
Nerds, Dweebs and (my personal favourite) Runts are all available in Poundland.
And yes, Vice Versas are definitely back, I have seen them in the Co-Op.

Not sure if they exist anymore, but BN BNs. Glad they brought back Coke Vanilla too. I remember Onken Frufoos were good too

BNs were great :D

We brought a load of them back from France back in 1996, and everyone was asking us what they were. Then about a year later they were "made available" over here, so no-one wanted to know us anymore. C'est la vie.

Haven't read the whole thread, too busy scoffing "Rondelo" biscuits, washed down with a tasty can of "Rio", may have an "Aztec" bar later. :D

Interestingly, you can still seem to get BN BN knock-offs from bargain shops but not the real deal itself. Hmm...

Frufoo's were amazing too but man were they expensive!

As for Vanilla Coke, I really loved it the first time around but I'm not really enjoying it now that its 'back'. The American one (which has always been available) tastes a bit different too. I don't think it will be around forever anyway as I've heard talk from Coke reps at our place that it hasn't been selling well at all.

Love Rio :) . Can only seem to find it in chippies though for some reason.

I think the new vanilla Coke is struggling cos it tastes far more like cream soda than it used to and surely everyone knows how foul cream soda is...

I call it a punishment drink cos when poured into cups at parties as a kid you'd think it was lemonade, take a big gulp then BLECCH!

Pepsi with lemon twist needs to return. I believe it is still sold in other countries but not here...as per bloody usual.

We're selling out of Vanilla Coke every week!

And Cream Soda? That's the BEST drink available. Especially Barr Cream Soda. There's twelve cans of it in my fridge right now :D

Yes, but cream soda has to be green, otherwise it's American cream soda which isn't nearly as nice.

But yes - stick some ice cream in there and you've got it all.

^ Wait - there's green cream soda?

Bit of Google-fu - seemingly only for you Scousers! Well, you and Thais...
That's why you're talking about it like it's a completely different drink - COS IT IS!
