Lilt is a brand of soft drink manufactured by The Coca-Cola Company and sold in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Gibraltar and the Seychelles only.[1] During the 1980s, Lilt was promoted with the advertising slogan, "the totally tropical taste." Between 2008 and 2014, the Coca Cola company reduced the number of calories in the soda by 56% as part of its efforts to make healthier products in response to the British Government’s Public Health Responsibility Deal.[2]

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".[3]
