I checked out the graphic novel rendition of Babysitters Club Book 3: The Truth About Stacey today. Oh, how the time changes!

I WAS DRINKING A TAB WHILE READING THE BOOK THIS AFTERNOON.
I’m OLD.

Annual Spring Soda Stock up!

ALL the new sodas were up at Wal Mart today. Pepsi Summer mix (tropical flavored pepsi, Diet Coke Plus (vitamins), and the Jones Cane Sodas (has cane sugar instead of HCFS).

Past spring soda hauls:

Diet Coke Plus

I finally got to try Diet Coke Plus today when I went to Food Lion to pick up a single roll of T.P. (why bother paying an arm and a leg for a pack at Food Lion when mom and I are going to Wal Mart tomorrow?). It was kinda flat, but it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be.

Remember two years ago when I started taking photos of every beverage I tried, and Diet Coke With Splenda was the first drink I reviewed?

I thought of that today as I was trying this beverage (since after all Diet Coke put a blue cap on this drink as well), but this time, Diet Coke Plus blew Diet Coke With Splenda out of the water.

I took this picture with the self timer on my Polaroid Spectra Onyx.

expect a lot of updates soon. I’ve been behind.

Diet Coke 8 Pack 8 oz Cans (Wal Mart exclusive?)

I think this is just a Wal Mart only thing. I like how this package has a piddily little handle on it.

Coca Cola 8 Pack Fridgepack

I got this at a eatery/C store called Uncle Bills in Courtland. I didn’t realize though when I got home that I spent … $3.49 on it. Whoops, I got too excited that I found a packing format I’d never seen before — well, Coca Coca C2 did this packaging when it first came out almost three years ago. Wow, C2’s rollout seems like 20 years ago.

Ah, Coke’s new balleyhooed sparking tea that is a calorie burner — but make sure not to exceed three cans a day! The can says:

drinking more than three cans a day will not have an additional effect

The berry was the best of the three flavors. Peach was too candy like and green was lacking something.

Diet Coke cans that look like this have been spotted on the posters and downloads section of dietcoke.com:

That looks a lot better than the current one if this is true. That current can is on my “ugly can” list.

The new looks is also going to be spotted on the upcoming Diet Coke Plus:
