Cresta

cresta3The coolest ad campaign of the Seventies.

The Bear (also called Cresta) that inspired The Fonz (no, really).

The drink that stripped paint.

Rimsky-Korsakov!!

Cresta was produced in the UK by Schweppes from the early 1970s and originally came in four different flavours: strawberry, lemon & lime, pineapple and orange, with blackcurrant being added later.

Do you know what all the bears up at the North Pole drink when they’re thirsty? It’s the sea, man — the Arctic Ocean!

Now me, I’m really into this frothy Cresta — like this strawberry flavour. The day they start making the Arctic Ocean in strawberry is the only day this young bear’s going to drink it!
