Cavan Cola was the best soft drink Ireland ever produced and needs to be brought back

BACK IN THE day, there was a magical creation available around the border counties called Cavan Cola.

It was ours. A quintessentially Irish/Cavan soft drink that was tragically taken from us in the early ’00s. But it needs to come back:

Because people were raised on the stuff and still dream of the taste

It was thicker than regular Coca-Cola and foamier too. Some described it as tasting a little like vanilla coke.

At one point, Cavan Cola outsold the more internationally famous Coke in the county of Cavan, such was its popularity at home.

It’s so beloved that last year the Anglo Celt newspaper started a campaign to bring it back

Oh yes.

And there was brilliant artwork to go along with it

The people were up for it but Cavan Cola still hasn’t made a return.

The family company that made it was eventually taken over by Finches - no better people to bring it back, then.

It continues to get immortalised in art, though

Proper order.

The taste of Irish childhood for so many

It was respected for its particular hangover benefits, too.

The campaign needs to be revived

Donegal still has its Football Special, and Cavan should have its Cola back

Powers that be, make it happen.
