Am I the only one who remembers 7up Gold?
For a brief moment in 1988, this was available. I was ten, and loved it as much as a ten year old could love a soda. Soda was a rare treat in our household. Because we were broke, the grocery money had to stretch as far as possible. But on some lucky days, there would be a sale on 7up products, or a little extra overtime. Paydays are magical things when living broke. Frozen pizza and soda tasted like ambrosia after a week of rice and beans. 7up gold tasted unlike any other soda on the wall o' beverages. It was like apple ginger ale, with a dash of sweet spices. And it had caffiene! Buzz, buzz, buzz!!
But then as quickly as it appeared, it vanished. And I have been just a little sad when I walk down the soda aisle ever since.
Maybe 7up will jump on the retro/throwback bandwagon and re-release it as a special edition. Look how well Pepsi Throwback did. And Salsa Rio Doritos, another childhood fave I thought I'd never taste again just came back. I emailed 7up. Maybe if enough junk food nerds did the same.....I can dream, can't I?
