Re:Retro 7 UP!
Bought some Retro 7 Up at Cub Foods in south Minneapolis yesterday morning. They had both the cans (which I think are hideous) in 12-pack cardboard boxes, and glass bottles in six-pack cartons. Of course I bought the bottles. They are the old fashioned design -- green bottles, with the old logo -- and the carton looks like it did in the olden days.
But let's get to the heart of the matter: the taste. I agree with the OP -- this is great, great stuff. Tastes like it used to. Sparkling, clean taste, with no hint of HFCS "syrupy" quality. Not cheap -- it was $5 for each carton (I bought two) -- but well worth it.
Thanks for the tip! I'd been out of the country and hadn't seen the advertisements for this. I seldom go to Cub Foods (or to Walmart or Target, which are also selling it here in Minnesota), so I could easily have missed it. We'll be using it for Pimm's Cup this weekend!
