My mom once told me I wasn’t not old enough and it would stunt my growth — and I believed her.
Instead, my drinks of choice are Diet Coke and raspberry Wyler’s Light.
Diet Cokes — especially the highly carbonated ones from a fountain — are such a treat. 🙂 My 11 a.m. “fix” is the highlight of my work day; thank God the room I work in is right next to the cafe!
And the servers at one of the local drive-throughs have seen me so often over the years (“Large Diet Coke, light ice”) that they get the drink ready when they see my car pull into the lot.
Don’t get me started, though, about the ecstasy of Diet Coke… that should be a whole separate blog post.
1) Inexpensive (packs of 10 singles are available for $1 at the local dollar store)
3) Tasty – especially if you use more than one pack at a time
4) Individually packaged for portability (easy to carry in your purse)
…and it livens up any glass of water.
Raspberry Wyler’s Light does have some downsides, though. The bright red color badly stains your lips and mouth (not to mention any clothing or furniture you spill it on!) In fact, my former boyfriend used to look over at the big red ring around my lips after I drank one and comment how it was like talking to “The Joker” in the Batman movie.
He eventually suggested using straws — and (who knew?) it was a great solution…
