I used to have those in the 90s too, they were lovely.
And in the 1960s. Meant to be a drink but a lot of places froze them & sold then as a sort of giant orange ice lolly, you had to tear the pack open from a corner to lick it - lasted a long time.
I think you can still buy boxes of these in either orange or raspberry from supermarkets?
Better when frozen
Definitely and they seem to last for ever.
We used to have 'school milk' in those in the early 60's.
We weren't hooligans, we had the glass bottles.
I used to like being the 'milk monitor' , using the bodger thing to make the holes in the top of the foil tops for the straws. Used to love those little glass bottles of milk.
You can still get these, in B & M or Home Bargains I think.
I remember those 'milk monitors.' Talk about power crazy … they made the Gestapo look like the Guildford Women's Institute Knitting Circle.
Jubbly's are available in Tesco
DO NOT GOOGLE 'Jubblies'!
Love it. The maths don't lie and the learned logic of math can be applied to all areas of life and it's factual answers give clear explanation
Used to enjoy being milk monitor too. Flatbed trolley loaded with crates you could get up speed down the corridor then leap on and ride it for several yards -quiet cos everyone else was in lessons. Didn't have foil tops in my era, cardboard discs instead.
You can probably divide quite a few of the www.staffordforum.com 'massive' along pre- and post- 'milk snatcher' lines...
Remember the jingle ?
Lovely Jubbly, lovely Jubbly orange drink.
And the Lovely Jubbly became a typical London expression for something good (Del Boy)
We were taking about school milk last night over skype, mostly we had it in glass bottles with foil tops. I'm pretty sure school milk is the reason I can't drink milk on it's own now.
My friend, who went to school in Stone, also talked about a 'fruit table' where fruit you brought from home was cut up and placed fruit side down on a sheet of paper so you had half for morning break and half for afternoon break.
Ditto. The cardboard containers half full festering in the sunshine put me off for life. Haven't drank 'raw' milk since infant school.
I loved those little foiled top glass bottles of milk so much that any left over was soon guzzled by me. I've loved it ever since and drink gallons of milk . ( When we go to the airport , first stop is Boots for a few little plastic bottles of milk whilst waiting for the flight , and to take on the plane for the journey )
All I'm bothered about during this Covid virus, and trying not to go to the shops with hubby being vulnerable, is where can I get my milk from.
My blue recycling bin is always half full of plastic milk bottles . (The glass ones from the butchers get returned to them each delivery )
An easy way to fix the plastic bottle situation https://www.thelocalmilkman.co.uk
"Milk and more" deliver milk in glass bottles and also sell other products such as bakery, fresh grocery, pantry goodies, etc. Not sure if they do the mini milk bottles from school days though.
I've not used them myself but they're supposed to be good.
Could save you risking going out for a while.
