    It’s in the same category as lithiates, chlorophyll, alkalines, and all the other faddish ingredients that infused the products of yore. I think Pepsodent gum is the last remaining pepsin product, just as Alka-Seltzer is the sole representative of the alkaline craze. 

    Note: I did the art this week, not EJ, which is why it’s not as good.

    Drinks taste better with American Ice!

    The American Ice corporation sponsors my local minor league baseball team. I don’t know their policy with respect to metal shavings though.

    I’m gonna go with Mr. Pibb over Dr. Pepper in a close match, while being open to the possibility that the formulas are identical, and that my belief in Pibb’s edge is totally psychological.

    This very weekend on The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs there was also a discussion of soft drinks/soda pop/Coke, particularly New Coke.

    I don’t remember New Coke tasting BAD, just that it was a bad idea.
