i just had a hankering for some of this...

when i was a child i wasn't allowed to drink much soda. for some reason i think my mom thought ginger ale wasn't as bad for us as real soda. so we sometimes would come home and find a treat in the fridge: a 6-pack of canned schweppes raspberry ginger ale.

recently i found myself having a hankering for something bubbly yet fresh, which reminded me of the deliciously refreshing taste of schweppes raspberry ginger ale. i'm saddened every time i walk by the "alternative" soda shelf in the grocery store where all the tonic, soda water, and ginger ale is stored. every time i glance down in the hope of catching a glimpse of my long lost childhood friend. alas, all i find is regular ginger ale or diet ginger ale...which only conjures up memories of laying in bed eating saltine crackers and watching movies on a sick day.

i did a little online research and found that schweppes does in fact still produce this fizzly pink liquid, they just don't sell it many places in the states anymore. if i were to happen upon it, i think i would stock up and clear the store out. oh schweppes, won't you just save us the trouble and start shipping it in the states again??

Hey, we have Schweppes here in Germany. I wish I could mail you a case. The cost of shipping would not be worth it. The next time I fly your way I will pack my suitcase only with Schweppes for you. Paul
