Lemon & Paeroa, also known as L&P, is a sweet soft drink (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soft_drink) manufactured in New Zealand (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Zealand). Traditionally made by combining lemon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemon) juice with carbonated mineral water from the town of Paeroa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paeroa), it is now manufactured by multi-national Coca-Cola (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca-Cola).
Lemon & Paeroa can be found only in New Zealand (and in speciality New Zealand stores in Australia, along with other products such as New Zealand Natural (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Zealand_Natural) ice cream). The paradoxical (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox) advertising slogan "World famous in New Zealand (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_famous_in_New_Zealand)" has become a popular New Zealand saying meaning very well known locally, but not receiving the recognition it deserves overseas.
Over the years attempts have been made to market variations, such as L&P dry. In 2005 "Sweet As L&P" with artificial sweetener (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artificial_sweetener) aspartame (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aspartame) was introduced with the modified slogan "World Famous in New Zealand since quite recently", the traditional product now being advertised as "World Famous in New Zealand since AGES ago".

Although L&P itself is now made on the same production line as Coke's other beverages, an L&P Kiwiana (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kiwiana) shop and cafe remains in Paeroa.
Note: Up to the mid-1970's, the motif Innes Tartan appeared on the neck of the L & P bottle.
