Memories AREN'T made of this
on 9 May 2013
I bought this product to accompany me on a trip down a 1980s Memory Lane, although my memory must have been playing tricks on me all these years, certainly as far as these cola cubes are concerned. The best thing I can say about them is that they are suitable for vegetarians, although you'd be better off finding a vegetarian who has never eaten a cola cube before - they might just about be impressed with these cubes then, having nothing whatsoever to compare them to.
I would have to verify the fact under hypnotic regression, but I'm sure the cola cubes in my day used to have a chewy centre; Was that just my imagination? They were nowhere near as sweet as these either and they did actually taste of cola. Was that all just my brain playing tricks on me with the assistance of a retro pair of rose-coloured glasses?
The cola cubes that arrived at my door, while definitely looking the part, failed dismally to transport me back thirty years. If the ones I used to queue up to buy in the school tuck shop are indeed distant relations of these sweets then I'm afraid the family has very much fallen on hard times.
