OMG. This stuff comes in every flavor – many not found in nature. And they have diet versions too.
Of course, diet soda is always risky. Diet Coke – delicious. Diet Pepsi – ewwwww. (And yet, I prefer regular Pepsi over regular Coke – go figure.) Diet Vernors – heaven (as long as you don’t let any of it get up your nose – then it’s torture in a can).
So I was at Meijer today doing some grocery shopping. (Nobody else in this area appears to carry both Organic (ultra-pasteurized) 1% milk (shopping tip – this stuff has an expiration date of 30 days or more!) and heavy cream in a quart size container (because this is our lightener of choice for our coffee – and we drink a lot of coffee … okay, I drink a lot of coffee).
Anyhow, I am currently on a hunt for club soda in a can – something that is apparently unheard of in the Tri-City Michigan area – and I’m in the soda (aka pop) aisle and I see they have diet versions of two of my all-time favorite Faygo Pop flavors – Cream soda and Rock & Rye (crème cola).
Because you never know what you’re getting with diet soda, I got 2 bottles of each. One each for me and my husband.
So right now, as I am typing away, hopefully for your entertainment, I am sipping on a bottle of sweet fizzy childhood – (diet) Rock & Rye Faygo Pop.
By the way, I grew up calling carbonated non-alcoholic beverages “pop” but 44 years in California broke me of that habit and I now refer to it as “soda” – except for Faygo.
Faygo will always be “pop” to me.
