Home Pop Culture Food & Drink Cresta


cresta3The coolest ad campaign of the Seventies.

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

The drink that stripped paint.


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!
