MUM Lucozade's bottle of 26 years old and she got into her youth's bedroom – and she said it had a fine taste.

Paula Peacock, 43, was a teenager when she hid the tiny glass bottle in the back of a wardrobe.

The bottle – which had the best date before February 1994 – was in her parents' bedroom at the home of her parents.

Paula made a rope on the father Jim Martin, 67, to do a taste test.

She said: “Both of them agreed that he felt the same thing but that he was fairly fair.

“When I got it, I was like a word from my word '- they don't even make the glass bottles bigger.

“I felt nostalgic, I continue to look at it – it's quite expensive.”

The community nurse Paula, from Clarkston, East Renfrewshire, Scotland, once relied on Lucozade to help her manage Type 1 diabetes.

When she was first diagnosed, at the age of 12, the medicine told her that if she had a hypo, a small bottle of sparkling glucose would help her.

The bottle contained 19g of carbohydrate per 100g. There are fewer in the present day.

Paula made the decision when she visited her family in Armagh County, Northern Ireland, with her husband Richard, 40, and their twin Sarah and Luke, 3.

She took the 250ml bottle, with a pink pink label, for sentimental value.

The bottle would help circulate around 1998.

In 2016, before the sugar tax was introduced, Lucozade expanded its sugar content.

His spokesman said: “The drink of this old age exceeded her shelf life and so we wouldn't recommend drinking it.”

    From a very good curiosity, Paula decided to taste it - she says that she has the same taste but that she was a little flat
