Commentary:

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.

Commentary:

Phar-Mor went a different route in their naming of this particular drink. Though it’s clearly a ripoff of Dr. Pepper, they pulled a name from way out in left field somewhere.

Exactly what part about a “black cherry” soda reminds you of Texas, anyway? One has to wonder.
