Lucozade

Lucozade

Going through the photos I’ve taken over the past year, including my period without internet activity I came across this photo of a Lucozade bottle. A local drugstore was giving them away for Father’s Day 2007. Yes, random I know :lol: My first instinct was to check the expiry date… to my surprise it was still good!

To those who don’t know, Lucozade is the British ‘equivalent’ to Gatorade. And although I now prefer Gatorade, Lucozade will always have a sentimental place in my heart as I grew up on it. I can’t say I’m a fan of Lucozade’s new bottle and design, but maybe this is what the ‘kiddies’ today find appealing?

Growing up Lucozade was symbolized by the hella-fine British decathelete Daley Thompson (only one of the greatest athletes/medalists ever), who appeared in a series of ads for the beverage.

Recently, I found one of the ads on YouTube… I know this will bring back the memories for many a Trini :lol:

    Being from the US, I never had Lucozade, but I definitely remember Daley Thompon.
    When he came to the US for the 1984 Olympics, I was like WHOA!!!!!!!!….I was only 14, but he definitely caught my eye!

    Thanks for sharing the new product (to me) and an wonderful Old Memory of Daley.

    I checked out Daley Thompson’s web page, he is still handsome as ever!

    I think they came out with flavored Lucozade which was better than the original-citrus taste I believe–it’s been a while since I drank the stuff in T&T

    Melanie – the grape is pretty good, but having been rather sick the past few days I find only the original will help settle my stomach :(
