The nostalgic drinks of the 1980s include: magic ice, Nestle ice tea, eye-catching, shock wave, Gevas, coconut juice, high Lego, Arctic Ocean, Laoshan Cola, Bingfeng, Wahaha AD calcium milk, Weiwei soy milk, etc. The following is about the post-80s nostalgic drinks full of specific introduction and pictures, let's have a look.

1.Magic ice.

There are three colors: red, pink and green, and different colors have different tastes. When I was a child, I would continue to drink with this bottle after drinking drinks.

2.Laoshan Cola.

Laoshan Cola was born in 1953. It is made of Laoshan mineral water plus cloves, good ginger and black dates. It is less sweet and greasy in the entrance, more refreshing and can taste the light plum and cloves flavor.

Coke was invented on May 8, 1886 by a man named John Pemberton in the United States.

Coke was invented by John Pemberton, a pharmacist in the United States, who hoped to create a medicinal cocktail that would lift the spirits, relieve fatigue and cure headaches. Pemberton's "Cocacola," originally made without gas, was drunk with cold water, and only by accident turned into a carbonated beverage.

On the afternoon of May 8, 1886, a drunkard stumbled into Pemberton's drugstore. "A cup of Cocacola, a potion for headache and brain fever." The shop assistant was supposed to go to the faucet to mix water, but the faucet was more than two meters away from him, so he didn't bother to walk, so he picked up soda water nearby and mixed it into Coca Cola.

As a result, the drunk liked it very much. He drank one glass after another and kept saying, "Good! Good!" The drunk also went around advertising the magic effect of this non-alcoholic drink.

The main flavors of cola include vanilla, cinnamon, lemon flavor, etc. The name comes from one of the early ingredients of cola: cola fruit extract. The more famous cola brands are Coca-Cola and Pepsi.

The main recipe for cola is publicly available. To mark Coca Cola's 100th birthday in 1986, Gustav named the new formula "7*100". Ingredients include sugar, carbonated water (carbon dioxide and water), caramel, phosphoric acid and caffeine. It is this spice blend that has established cola's unique taste

3.Wahaha AD calcium milk.

When I was a child, the most common Wahaha AD calcium milk was the iconic green bottle with a doll pattern with a red hat, which tasted sour and sweet.

There are many dairy drinks now, but in the 1980s, there were not so many dairy products now, and it was not until the appearance of Wahaha AD calcium milk that the situation at that time was broken. Wahaha AD calcium milk was the first bottled yogurt at that time, with sour and sweet taste, which was loved and sought after by people at that time.

Jianlibao was born in 1984, in Los Angeles Olympic Games, "a hit", China's "National drink." Meanwhile, Jianlibao is also a "sports" drink, and it is not too much to say that it is the "predecessor" of Red Bull.

In the 1980s, Jianlibao was popular all over the country. Remember the pattern on the outer package at that time? Is a discus throwing athlete. At that time, as long as drinking drinks, I would choose Jianlibao, but the economic conditions were not good, so I felt that I could drink Jianlibao definitely at the local tyrant level. Did you drink it when you were kids?


The drink, Golog, appeared as a breakfast in the '80s. High Lego can also be drunk with milk, which is particularly nutritious and delicious. If you want another bread, it will be the most luxurious breakfast at that time. However, the living conditions at that time were not good, and it’s estimated that there were not many friends who drank Lego. You know, it was a high-consumption product at that time! Did you drink Lego when you were a child?

6.Arctic Soda

Arctic soda is a favorite of the post-80s generation, popular in the 1980s, and loved by people. Many of the post-90s generation have never seen it, let alone the post-00s.

At that time, a bottle of Arctic Ocean soda was only 50 cents, and it had a great package. There was a big polar bear on the outside of the bottle, which was very cool. It’s estimated that this pattern will now occupy a place in the beverage industry. And there are many flavors of Arctic Ocean soda, and personally, orange tastes are the best. Especially in summer, when you come to a bottle of iced Arctic Ocean soda, the feeling is indescribable! What do you think?
