Let's All Take A Moment To Remember Panda Pops

It's been five years since Panda Pops - AKA the ultimate tuck shop drink and Wacky Warehouse party essential - were scrapped.

Health-conscious mums were blamed for the demise of the classic fizzy drinks brand, which was folded after 35 years.

However, I personally hold professional fun sponge Jamie Oliver accountable because he planted the whole health-conscious seed in the first place. That reminds me of another childhood robbery. Two words: Turkey Twizzlers. Need I say any more?

Apparently, soft drinks firm Nichols ditched the range to concentrate on healthier juice drinks and flavoured water. What a shambles.

Cherryade was the best flavour, IMO. Mostly because it turned your tongue red and the sugar rush hit you like a fucking freight train. You'd be buzzing your tits off from the thing. Especially when the caretaker dropped 'Boom Boom Boom Boom!' by the Vengaboys at the school disco. Sweet, sugar-fueled memories. Gone but not forgotten.
