Last ever unopened can of Creamola Foam up for sale

Two cans of the beloved drink are up for sale on auction site Ebay.

Published: January 21, 2016


One of the cans available is lemon flavoured and dates back to the 1970's. Its tin packaging still remains in tact and includes the original 10p price sticker.

The other, is a raspberry flavoured can from the 1990's which displays the more modern design of the brand that it had shortly before production was stopped.

The cans were part of a collection of Scottish confectionery memorabilia and have sat in a small safe for over six years before being put on sale.

Creamola Foam was popular with youngsters from the 1950's through to the late 1990's. Its cans contained flavoured crystals which were dissolved in water to create a sugary juice drink.

The production of the brand ended in 1998, sparking a wave of disappointment and a campaign for its return ever since.

“They work just like little time machines that whisk the holder back to halcyon days at the back of the Grannies Pantry or begging below the top shelf at the local Co-op” seller Janice explains.

“As my husband and I approach our 50th birthdays, the time has come for them to move on to either a private collection, a museum or the hands of whomever wants to be the last Scot to ever taste the original real thing or pop the wee paper seal on the top of a Creamola Can for the last time.”

Both cans are being auctioned together, and will include two cans of the modern ‘Krakatoa’ doppleganger for anyone who wants to taste it or is too in awe to drink the original.
