Food Lion is having a huge sale this week (see title). I wasn’t going to spend $10 on soda, but they got me! Luckily, all this expires in July and August so it’ll be drank.

he first time I had this stuff in the summer of 2003 I hated it. It tasted like you know those push popcicles in the narrow plastic bags? Yeah, that’s what it tasted like. I was curious to see if it had changed or I have changed since then so I got one out of the machine at Wal Mart.

It’s better than I remember, but not something I’d drink all the time. In some areas, its a permanent fixture for Pepsi, but just in 20 oz. Some places, it only comes back during the Summer.

And there was absolutely no way I was going to put that orange on the counter. No.

Crush Cake (Wal Mart)

I usually don’t even hang around the bakery section of Wal Mart but I gues I was bored or something, and I ran into this. I’ve seen 7up Cakes before in grocery stores, but never a Crush Cake. I guess since those cheapo six pack glass bottles never sell, they had to get rid of it somehow.

It’s kinda dry. I accidently took a big bite and almost gagged.

The only reason why I bought this since I’m not a big fan of RTD teas?

A) It was on sale ($4.98 at Wal Mart)
B)Coke is retiring the Nestea Snowman
C)The Nestea Cool 24 Pack is kinda rare.



Fruitopia Cranberry Lemonade Vision Commercial (1994 or 1995)

Fruiptoia Ad #1 (slide one)

Fruitopia Ad #1 (3rd Slide)

Fruitopia Ad #1 (4th slide)

Fruitopia ad I found on an old tape (mostly from 1994 or 1995) that someone donated to the library where I used to volunteer at this past January. We can’t accept homemade tapes so I took the whole box of tapes home with me.

This is for a Cranberry Lemonade flavor. This was back in Fruitopia’s glory days. In 1998 they went to a cold fill method and put it in plastic bottles and the flavors got crappy. It was finally discontinued in 2002-ish and some flavors now run under the Minute Maid name.

The last time we visited the Cinnabon drinks was back in Februrary with the Espresso Cream flavor

I’ve only seen these at the Food Lion in Courtland, VA. Coke makes them under the Brain Twist name.

This one had a very intense nut flavor.

I guess this fridgepack was in the middle of a shrinkwrapped pallet.

This was kinda harsh. I usually don’t even like RTD (ready to drink) Tea’s but my friend; Gary had been bringing them up a lot in our IM’s so I decided to try some again.

This was pretty bad. This stuff is probably Strawberry Quik in disguise.

The actual Strawberries and Cream Frappuchino at Starbucks was better than this. Funny though, when I drink the coffee Frappuchinos in the bottles, I think they taste better than the ones at Starbucks. I’m not not a big “coffee with crushed ice in it” person.

This was the first time I’ve had Pepsi One in cans since it came out in 1998, and since they re did it last year.

It’s a lot better than it used to be.

The fridgepack was interesting on this pack as well (omgz, $2 off a movie ticket!) . Oh, and Wal Mart is selling Pepsi One and Slice One for 2/$5 right now.
