Just a Little Taste


Behold the deliciousness!

The Coca Cola Corporation is messing with me, y'all. They put out the Black Cherry Vanilla Diet Coke, and even though it sounds like it would be awful, it is completely delicious. The convenience store in our building sold it, and I got HOOKED. Now, it is nowhere to be found, and I am bereft. They've got the Diet Cherry Coke and the Diet Vanilla Coke, and I'm fixin' to buy one of each and mix them together to stave off the cravings. WTF Coca Cola?

P.S. Diet Berry Vanilla Dr. Pepper is not working as a substitute.

I felt the same way when Frito Lay pulled Cheesy Checkers. Cheesy Xs and Os is totally not the same thing. It truly isn't easy being cheezy, and don't let anybody tell you different.

Also I think mixing diet vanilla coke and diet cherry coke could result in a dangerous chemical reaction, and you might find yourself overcome with fumes before you know it. It reminds me of the way Sylvia and I used to experiment with Jolly Tyme ginger beer and Altoids as youts. Damn kids always think they're immortal.

OMG, you and Mully are all about the Cheesy Checkers. She insisted they tasted better than other Cheetos. I, for one, could not tell the difference, but I support you in your cravings.

OMG, i loved cheesy checkers too!!!
i even called the frito-lay hotline and begged them to bring them back. they were the best! the lady was really nice to me, but when i asked her about the likelihood of their re-intoduction, she said, and i will never forget it, "that is not going to happen anytime too soon", well that was like 1997, so maybe we should try calling her again. it is too terrible to fall in love with products. that is why i am going to marry sunbutter.

i also told the lady at the frito-lay hotline that i did not find any of the new shapes to be "dangerously cheesy". that classification is reserved for cheesy checkers, and only cheesy checkers.

Whew - glad to know my near brush with the crack-laden Black Cherry Vanilla Diet Coke was not something to be lamented. I almost picked one up once, but didn't. Apparently, I would've missed it terribly.

Sorry to hear about your specialty soda loss, mc, but I love the picture of the can. At least you still have that. Do the others still have a picture of Cheesy Checkers to look back on? What's wrong with me? Why do I love product photos so much?

Hybrid Fat-n-Sassy said...

No pictures of Cheesy Checkers left, alas. All I have is a cheadle-stained memory.

I can't even look at Diet cherry-vanilla Dr. Pepper, the magnetic pull is so strong.

Now I'm craving cheetos- what's up with that?
