Here’s a fact for you; if you’re not drinking enough water, your body is secretly suffering without you really knowing about it.
It’s quite often the case in children and teenagers, whose action packed, entertaining lifestyles remarkably can’t make room for regular hydration. Though while all you parents out there encourage your kids to change that worrying reality, it’s quite easy to forget that you need to consume enough fluids yourself. As a general rule, that’s 3 litres for men and 2.2 litres for women on a daily basis.

Coinadrink have been providing your hungry workplace with sumptuous snacks for years. Crisps, cakes or breakfast bars, you can be sure that we cater to every mouth, but we’re always striving to keep adding to your machine.
In just a few weeks, we’re excited to announce that there’ll be two more additions to our range. Tyrells have been producing hand cooked British crisps for just over 15 years, and taste has been at the top of the agenda right from the beginning.
Coinadrink has been in business for 55 years and to mark this magical milestone, MD and Founder Roger Williams agreed to go in front of the cameras to share some of his memories. We cut them into bite-size segments: you can watch them in any order. Enjoy!

The average price of a house was £2,670 – although such a sum would have bought you something pretty impressive in Walsall – and the average wage was £799 a year. A pint of milk cost 1/4d (that’s 6.5p in ‘new’ money!) and a pint in the pub would set you back 2/4d, (11.5p).
The best selling record of the year was Frank Ifield, yodelling ‘I Remember You.’ It was September before anybody had heard of a group of scruffs from Liverpool calling themselves ‘The Beatles’.
