You can still get cornets in t’ASDA

Pubs always used to have bitter and mild. Mild was dark brown and less gassy. Problem was, at the end of the night, the contents of the ‘slop trays’ went into the mild barrel, because no one could ever taste the difference!🤢

What I want to know is, is sarsaparilla a drink that was mainly a northern drink or is it just an old fashioned drink that was drunk all over the country at one time.

But the one that has shocked me a bit is ‘pop’ - for a fizzy drink
I have always assumed that everyone just calls it pop.
What do people call it if they don’t call it pop ? And where are you from for that ?
When we were kids in Salford in the 60s, we called fizzy drinks
mineral, I don’t know where that came from.

My mum used to call it mineral too ! I think originally fizzy drinks were made with mineral water by pharmacists and sold as a health drink.

When I was a nipper, my grandad used to take me to the pub on a Sunday lunchtime, he'd have a brown n mild while I had a bottle of coke. Forgot all about mild until you mentioned it.

To be fair, if Yorkshire had been a separate country in the 2012 Olympics, we would have finished 12th in the medal table
