Original 2L bottle subsequently replaced with a can.

You’ll be perky all evening while you’re vomiting in the bathroom after drinking this horrible excuse for a beverage. Seriously, this one is extremely foul. It’s by far the worst-tasting imitation that I’ve tried. It’s just truly, truly horrible.

This beverage is no longer available. That’s too bad, because it tasted pretty good. Plus, you could buy a pallet at a time!

In the spring of 1998, I hosted a party for the trombone section of the NC State Marching Band. I bought a couple cases of Dr. Up, and a couple of cases of Pepsi. At the end of the party, all the Dr. Up were gone, but I still had about half of the Pepsis. Go figure.

My mother’s-mother’s family has had a couple reunions in a city in the southeastern corner of Kentucky. I picked up this specimen en route to just such a reunion in July of 1999.

This little gem came from a drink machine outside the store itself.

Mr. Pig is still working with his doctoral committee on his thesis. When he passes his oral examination, we can start using the “Doctor” title which he will so rightly deserve.
