Nothing like a Sundrop

 
Posted by Picasa

Have you ever had a Sundrop? I absolutely love it! I remember tasting my first Sundrop in in elementary school. Back then a bottle was only 25 cents. The concession stand ladies would line up bottles on the countertop and then wait for the students to come and buy them. It wasn't often that I had a quarter so a friend showed me how to stand beside the concession stand and sneak a Sundrop from the counter without being noticed. (Before you start lecturing mom, know that I have repentented of this sin!) That is when I began my relationship with Sundrop. I remember driving around wtih a cooler and a six-pack of Sundrop in my car during college. Back then a can was only 29 cents. When George and I dated we used to stop and buy Sundrop all the time. I stopped drinking caffiene for several years ago but I'm still weak when it comes to a Sundrop, especially if it's in a bottle. Notice the dent in the middle of the can. I personalize my can everytime with this dent. It helps me have a better grip of the can when I'm driving. If you haven't had a Sundrop ever or in awhile and you live in the South, I suggest you go ASAP to the nearest store and buy one. Fall in love with the citrus cola Sundrop!

I've never had a Sundrop. I'm a cola kind of girl. I don't drink any drink now. I used to like Pepsi. I have some Gatorade in the kitchen now.

Too funny Tj! I remember buying double cola in bottles at break time for a quarter!

I love the dent! Hey....you didn't post about your pork tenderloin biscuit and how it tastes so yummy with the sundrop!

You need to post a pic of that gas station/breakfast nook of George and the kids:)

Had to laugh. Sundrop and pork tenderloin biscuit. My fave. Kids would always get a Sundrop and steak biscuit on the way to school after seminary. Guilty pleasure.

I'm a diet Coke person as you know. I have had Sundrops but they are to sweet for me.

You have a good way of taking a subject and writing an interesting piece about it! A talent, I think....
