Wikipedia

  1. Lilt

    Lilt is a brand of soft drink manufactured by The Coca-Cola Company and sold only in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Gibraltar, and the SeychellesSince the 1970s Lilt has been promoted with the advertising slogan "the totally tropical taste." Between 2008 and 2014, The Coca-Cola Company reduced the number of calories in the drink by 56% as part of its efforts to make healthier products in response to the British Government's Public Health Responsibility Deal. The amount of sugar was also reduced alongside the addition of artificial sweeteners (aspartame, acesulfame K and saccharin). One advertisement in the late 1980s featured the "Lilt Man", a parody of a milkman, delivering Lilt in a "Lilt float", with a song bearing the lyrics "Here comes the Lilt Man." In the late 1990s, it was heavily promoted with advertisements featuring two Jamaican women, Blanche Williams and Hazel Palmer, with one advert parodying a Levi's advert. They became known in the media as the "Lilt Ladies".In late 2021, the drink was rebranded in Ireland as a sub-brand of Fanta, followed by Great Britain in 2022.

Examples of LILT in a Sentence

  1. Rosa de Winter-Levy:

    ‘I saw Anne Frank and Peter van Pels in Westerbork. They were always together. (…) In Westerbork Anne was lovely, so radiant that her beauty flowed over into Peter. (…) Perhaps it’s not the right expression to say that her eyes were radiant. But they had a glow, if you know what I mean. And her movements, her looks, had such a lilt to them that I often asked myself: Can she possibly be happy? She was happy in Westerbork, though that seems almost incredible.’
