Familiar with this name? No? See the photo and I’m sure you will go OooOOooOoo… Hahaha… Well, only those growing up in the 80’s, 70’s, 60’s or earlier will be familiar with this. I’m not sure about those in the 90’s. Have any fond memory of it? Gossh… It reminds me that I’m no longer young anymore.
I don’t think you can see it here in the city anymore but you can definitely see them in small districts and towns. For those of you that have not much idea, do you know a drink called Sundrop? If you do, then this is the product that is produced by this company. It used to be a hit among us long time ago just like Coke or Pepsi. Then when more and more brands coming out, this is later forgotten. Due to that, the company produced a new drink called Sundrop.
I think this bottle must have gone tru’ all the thick of thin of your life and mine for quite a number of decades. The bottles were washed and reused. You need to return the bottle back to them and not throw them away. There were no plastic bottles last time and that time, everything was in glass bottle like this. During Chinese New Year, we used to have crates and crates of softdrinks in glass bottles, after finishing them, these bottles were sent back to where we bought it and they would return it to the factory to be washed and reused. I think the bottle you are seeing now it’s still the same old bottle that was used 20, 30 years ago. I don’t think they produce new bottles for it. Everything is exactly the same. See how things that were produced decades ago can last this long?
It still has the wordings stated “The Amoy Canning Corp. (M). BHD.” on one side. The company no longer use this name. Then another side is “Licensed By Green Spot Co. U.S.A”, does this company still exists in the US? Need to Google about it.
There is no Malay name for the drink. You can only see English, Chinese and Tamil. There were no such law about printing details of all those things you see in bottles nowadays.
Talking about this, remember Fanta? I always like Fanta green hehehe… Now if you ask me to drink these beverages, I won’t dare to drink much, maybe a sip or two but I didn’t drink the one in the photo. I wanted to drink but couldn’t get myself to drink it. I even don’t drink F&N Orange, Groovy Grape etc. Nice to see, very colourful but not nice to drink. The colours are freaking me out.
Do you feel old now? Hahaha… It does bring back a lot of memories. Very nostalgic.
