It is nearly 95 degrees Fahrenheit outside, too much for my taste. For you Swedes, this is about 33 degrees Celsius, and with our humidity it feels much worse. Sweat is dripping on my neck and my fingers stick to the keyboard, because nothing evaporates, unless you sit in the sun, and then you sweat even more.
PP recently found a complete bottle in the forest nearby of this brand, Whistle, marked New Brunswick on the bottom as well. Seems like the bottle is at least 60 years old, and probably has just been laying in the forest since. Why is it that old-fashoned advertising seems so more pleasing than today's massmarket ads for Sprite, Coke, and so on? I don't think it is that I only like old-fashioned things, I just think older ads look more like art, and new ones don't.
Also, turns out the man that invented the flavoring of Whistle Orange Soda, also invented 7-UP. One is gone, the other is huge in sales.
And, did you know that there is also a Steam-Whistle Beer? It is listed as a Canadian pilsner. I have never had it, but I bet PP has or ought to try it! Check out the label - it really looks like a steam whistle (ångvissla).
