Actual L&P, as opposed to the sickly sweet substitute available nowadays. And "Te Aroha & Lemon".

 

 

 

 

 

 

That might explain it.  I used to like L&P but when I came back from living in the UK for 20+ years I found I hated it.

Still made by the fish and chip shop at Opononi.

Good old fashioned take-aways where there was was real meat in the burger and the chips were cooked in proper fat (tallow?). If you spread it out over a plate you would have meat, salad and potato - sounds pretty healthy to me. Now it's all plastic food.

Dirty Dog cactus lemondade (energy drink).  Great for staying awake while driving.

Anything from Colgate, Unilever, Proctor & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson that used to be made here but is now made in Thailand, India or Brasil (or wherever troops can quell uprisings by angry exploited workers). 

 

This includes pretty much anything in the bathroom, laundry or kitchen.

Eww - sounds nasty - how was it 'spread' - by intimate contact? 

 

Maybe good we can't seem to get it any longer.

I think (but not sure) you can still get Lion Brown and Rheineck?

 

My first 'Buy a dozen, get drunk and throw up' at 15 yrs old was Rheineck. No issues at all buying it (in Newmarket I think) after school.

When I was at Ohakea Airbase in the 70's we used to go to Service Station at Sanson (5 mins away) after the base bar's closed on a weekend and all quite drunk, we would have THE BEST BURGERS EVER. All REAL and FRESH produce including the meat and bun. Soaked all that booze right up. No Mac's or KFC or what ever international fast food back then. Today it is all far too processed and tasteless.

andrew027:

 

@xpd: 1c lollies....  $1 got you a massive bag. Today you're lucky to get 2 lollies.... 

 

I remember when lollies were sold separately in open boxes on the dairy counter, and wine gums were four for a cent. One summer my brother and I found a dollar note on the beach and went to the closest dairy and bought $1.00 worth - and stood there watching the poor (more than slightly annoyed) shop keeper count out 400 wine gums.

 

@FineWine: You used to be able to get an icecream popsicle with real strawberry fruit mash coating, absolutely yum. Can not remember name or who made them.

 

Sounds like the Splice.

 

 

Heh, I remember going to the dairy on the main street of Greymouth in either 1987 or 1988 and asking for "coins", the poor lass had no idea what I was talking about. When I referred to them as "1c lollies" she knew exactly what I meant. So, I bought $2 worth (with an old purple $2 note!) and she had to sit there and count them out.

 

You can still buy them today - though not quite for that bargain price - at The Old Lolly Shop in Takapuna:
