Orange Sunkist

Something happened to my family while Kramer was sick.

Previously I kept Diet Orange Sunkist on hand for Kelli.  Yes…I’m a nice mom like that and keep the garage refrigerator filled with kids’ favorite beverages.  I rarely bought Diet Orange Sunkist as Kelli brought her own and she was the ONLY one that drank it.

No one else would touch it.

When Kramer was sick I drank more pop than water.  That’s not typical of me.  It was a stress and I wasn’t thinking enough to take better care of myself.  Well one day the refrigerator wasn’t stocked with my usual drink so I grabbed a Diet Orange Sunkist.

Well…my world changed…I started right then and there drinking it more often.  Then one day the kids were having rootbeer floats.  I didn’t have enough rootbeer so I had a float with Diet Orange Sunkist.  Oh my.  I liked that better than root beer floats.  I highly recommend trying it if you haven’t.

I have to tell you…when I was little orange pop was my favorite.  We didn’t have pop much when I was a kid but when we did…I was all about orange pop.   Here’s an old picture…Proof I was an orange pop fan as a kid.  See??
That’s me sitting on my sister Judy’s lap.  The story goes that I cried and threw a fit until they got me an orange pop and apparently, this was the only size available.

I thought I had long since passed that phase of loving orange pop.  I guess now…it’s back.  You know what they say, what’s old is new again!!

As a college kid and young mom, Diet Mountain Dew was my thing.  I’ve been through a Diet Root Beer (only the A&W version) and a Diet Dr. Pepper phase. That one lasted quite awhile.  I’ve also been through a Lipton tea and Snapple phase.  It seems I catch on something and then I stick with it awhile.  I’ve never had one return like this orange pop thing has.

Well since I started loving it, I said something to Karl…now he’s hooked on it too.  And now that it’s in the refrigerator more, Neighbor Girl has picked that as her favorite too.  Well at least it goes on really good sales….around here better sales than other pops.  So, load up the truck.  I think we’ll be buying more Diet Orange Sunkist than any other pop around here…for awhile anyway.  Who knows when I’ll be on a new kick.
