    Curries Red Kola is still on the go.
    Get Curries Red Kola in Waitrose. No as good as Barrs IMO.

    A new Scotish company is Alba Cola:

    https://www.albacola.com/

    Haven't seen it in shops yet though.

    They sell Alba Cola in Real Foods on Broughton Street. It's quite nice but £1.60 is a bit steep for a can of juice.

    Dunbar's at the back of what is now the South Stand. Hence the name Dunbar End.

    There was Leitchs in Musselburgh, and St. Ronans Wells in the Borders (Clipperton?)

    Who made the blue lemonade in Dunfermline?
    Was that called "Blue Moon Lemonade"? I remember getting that as a treat sometimes, but can't remember who made it...

    I can't believe it took as long as that to mention Dunbar's.

    Jim Dunbar, one of the last owners, worked beside my wife about 20 years ago.
    They tried to bury us, they didn't realise we were seeds.

    In this day and age of naming rights, the club would be charging him to name a section of the ground after his company.

    It was the Alpine lorry for me as a bairn. The excitement when the lorry came was magic, you used to run downstairs with the crate with the empty bottles and the order of new bottles. I loved the Alpine pinappleaid. Fond memories.

    United we stand here....

    Woodrows perhaps?

    Am sure the owner - Roy Woodrow - had a significant stake in Dunfermline AFC, eventually retiring as chairman.
