Lilt is a brand of soft drink manufactured by The Coca-Cola Company and sold in the Seychelles, United Kingdom, Gibraltar and Ireland only.[1] During the 1980s, Lilt was promoted with the advertising slogan, "the totally tropical taste." 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. They became known in the media as the "Lilt Ladies".[2]
