Holiday Hot Dr. Pepper!

Today I was reminded about the (to me) strange idea of serving Dr. Pepper hot. (Click here to read my previous post on the subject.)

The film and sound quality for this video is terrible, but still. It's worth the watch for those of you who remain skeptical about whether or not to heat up a batch.

Perfect for wrapping up your holidays. There's still time; it's not midnight yet!

It's a far out promotional piece which Cool Whip published in 1969. And just to make it that much hipper, check this out:

That's right. It stands up! 

Here's a close up of Miss Psychedelic Cupcake Girl:

Something tells me her name might be Lucy.

This is just the beginning of the awesomeness. Stay tuned for more love to come from this special book.

Moxie. Wicked Good Stuff

I'm drinking my first Moxie, even as I type.

It is reputedly the oldest soft drink in America, having been brewed since 1884. I haven't done the research to either confirm or deny this factlet.

All I know is that it definitely is different. No doubt about that. Just take it from this guy:

Moxie. Try it if you can find it in your neck of the woods.
