    Default Pola Cola

    Does anyone remember Pola Cola bottles, I found one under a floor, big bottle about 12" high with an old fashioned stopper.
    Was just wondering how old it is.

    I remember a Pola Cola advert along Dura St in the early 1970s, think it was a polar bear with a bottle of Pola Cola in its hand.

    Pola Cola, I do remember. Can't say I recall the bottles having stoppers, though.
    I love the smell of Lorraine Kelly in the morning.

    Apparently the company that made it (Robertson’s) were taken over by Strathmore Springs. They might be able to tell you.

    Definitely remember it from the 70s, but don’t think the bottles had stoppers at that point.

    I seem to remember Pola Cola also did a weird plastic type can, almost shaped like a jelly mould. A bit like this.

    My sister was married and lived in Balmore St in 1968 which is why we were down that end in late 60s. She lived in a garret at the too of Balmore St, the kitchen was absolutely tiny, like a phone box. She had to peel the tatties oot the windie.
