Saw this on e-Bay. Sunecta Mixed Fruit was one of my favourites. Made by R.L. Jones of Mansfield, later became Mandora.

Our local popman was Redgates Mineral Waters

Cream soda was always my favourite from the Corona range. My overall fave was Dandelion and Burdock, but it had to be Redgates. I remember for a while in the 60s, we had pop delivered by ( beer at home means ) Davenports. They did an offer, four different flavours came each week. Four bottles didn't last five minutes!

crankypig, over here you get a Root Beer Float, a glass of R.B with a dollop of ice cream in it. You were way ahead of your time! [btw, hate root beer, smells like germolene]

I agree cream soda by corona is the best, are they still around? 
root beer isn’t all that, my Nan used to buy it from Brixton market it tastes like dirty socks.

This is the Aussie version, made from artificial sassafras flavouring liquorice root, vanilla beans and molasses.

Sarsaparilla is popular here

None of them are to my taste.

Much prefer this companies rum
