Icon24 Lilt drink

Comment: The softdrink 'Lilt' made by the Coca-Cola company, my co-worker
says its short for "Loving it Like That". Is that true or did he make it
up?

I did a google search for the drink, came up with a Wiki article it didn't say if Lilt had a meaning.

Lilt itself is a word it means: rhythmic swing or cadence, as well as: to sing or play in a light, tripping, or rhythmic manner.

I did a general google search for loving it like that, but came up empty.

Default I don't think I'd drink that stuff.

Am I the only person who remembers “Lilt” not as a soft drink, but as a brand of home permanent? That brand name would NOT make me feel like drinking it!

For those who enjoy weird internet input, here’s an explanation of the sexual symbolisms on the Lilt soft drink label. It came up third in a google search.
