Summer Solstice

I have just two things to say about today...

The Bad: the days only get shorter from here on out. That's depressing.

The Good: we're one day closer to summer being over and the yummy goodness of Fall to be upon us.

In honor, today at lunch I'm drinking the new, special edition Pepsi Summer Mix (pictured below). They say it tastes like "a mix of pepsi and tropical fruit flavors." I say it tastes like "someone drank a pepsi, ate a sno-cone and a handful of smarties and threw it up all into my mouth."

summer mix pepsi is a joke, right? did they learn nothing from the clear pepsi debacle? actually, i just hate all things pepsi. and solstice.

That sounds delicious...i love when those things are retched into my mouth!

I am a Coke product ho!

CHW said...

Nice way to differentiate yourself, Pepsi. Good luck. At least Coke has the guts to tap into our serious addictions with the caffeine loaded Blak.

blythe said...

blak? huh? between the diet cherry vanilla caffeine free berry blast pepsi jazz and the all natural lemon lime vanilla sprite sierra dew, i just cannot keep up.

Boo for Fall: I hate leaving work feeling like vampire.

Yeah for Fall: The smell of burning leaves and much better fashion options.

Like Jenny, I'm a Coke Ho, but am considering sleeping around w/ Pepsi's summer sexiness. But if Cherry Ride is to believed, I will definitely regret it in the morning.

Saccharine puke is always tasty.

The bad news is bad...and the good news is bad. Fall (Autumn) is usually damp in the North of England.

You know, the Summer Mix container kind of looks like someone ate a sno-cone and, like, ten handfuls of smarties, and yakked it all up all over a Pepsi can.

I hate today! But I do love fall, too. I'm just not ready yet. I need more baseball, bbq and maybe another trip out to Chicago first.

don't you know that whenever they put new colors on the pepsi can that is a sure sign that it will taste like puke? this is generally a good rule of thumb for all canned carbonated beverages, new colors on the can = puke flavored

ADW said...

Yuck. I hate Pepsi. I would rather have the throw up in the mouth part.

Haven't tried it- but I think I'm going to have to- I'm just too curious now. Have you tried Diet Pepsi Max yet? I keep seeing all their commercials- you know with all the people yawning? www.wakeuppeople.com Thoughts?
