There was a post on a Face page about glass bottles and recycling which brought back memories of money back schemes for empty glass bottles in the 1960s. The local "lads & lassies" used to get into the back yard of my family's business and repatriate the empty bottles - more than once and "get the money back! several times. Oh to be back in the 1960s!
And then they invented "Jubbly" containers for orange drinks and similar milk cartons to replace very small glass bottles.
:D

Plus you could get them frozen in the tetrahedron shaped pack like a lolly or melted as a drink. :D

Just before Thatcher the Milk Snatcher stopped our school milk it came in little tetrahedron cartons. There was a little bit of paper stuck over a hole that you pushed a straw into.

Similar to the Jubblys today are Calipos, we've always got a few boxes in the freezer for a refreshing change to a cup of coffee.

Looks like one of those dark volcanic mills that Derek Trotter spoke about. Or was it dark satanic mills.......
