Sorry Donald, something has gone wrong with the picture... :oops:

It was a picture of a flag with Mickey, Donald and Pluto and the text was:
Fullt uns mit PEZ und lass uns zusammmen spielen! :

(fill us with PEZ (sweets) and let us play together!)

Thanks, I clicked on the link and I saw it. It's nice, but it makes me feel very old as well. Young people cannot remember PEZ vending machines anymore.
I also feel old when I tell people that I can remember a time when Twix was called Raider.

It is not the age but the spirit that counts :wink:

I can remember lots of product renames, most of the time, the new name makes no sense at all... :cry: :lol: 8O

When I was round 14 years, we used to get a bottle of Shandy on sprecial occasions...now the cool drink is a breezer :wink: cheers!

Eh, I don't know if they changed the name in each country at the same time, but I recall that Twix was only a few years ago Raider. :?

In Belgium, it has changed for about 15 years I think ... :? ... maybe they've sold all old stocks on the Finnish market :lol:.

Belgium had Raiders as well, [pronounced as Rider]

Raider actually has a negative meaning in English (eg on the stock exchange)

Those were the days ... When sweets were called Mars or Milky Way and the dogs were called Pluto, and Shockin Blue was singing about Venus, top songs were about a Blue Moon, and the B-52's were on Planet Claire ...

Now we have Twix ... what IS that ?
Time is on our side ...

And those things we used to pay with, now called Euro.

Where's the time when we used Franks or Marks or Guilders :wink:

I still remember when Twix was called Raider... until 10 or 15 years ago (don't remember it exactly). But I have clear memories of the advertising announcing the renaming, an annoying jingle which roughly said: "In the whole world Raider is Twix" :lol:
And BTW, in Italy there are both Sprite and Chinotto, which are two completely different things: they taste different and while Sprite is transparent, Chinotto is dark (colour is similar to Coke).
I know that in some countries there's no Chinotto!

In Venezuela, Sprite and Chinotto are excactly the same, same color, same taste ... So as an Italian, don't ask for Chinotto if you want something brown to drink :lol: :lol:

Sprite is Sprite in Finland :) BTW do they sell Mountain Dew elsewhere in EU? They launched in Finland just last month and the retailer claimed in their web page that Finland is first country in the whole EU to have the Dew. That's pretty hard to believe since Dew is the 3rd most selling soft drink in the US.

I always associate Mountain Dew with hillbillies at Stockcar-races.

I've tried it in the USA >>> tastes very bad. :x

On the other hand >>> I do like the Tatse of Dr. Pepper. :P
