I can see that many of us are putting in late nights these days... I'd like to help you all out a bit.

Sure, Mountain Dew has been the drink of choice for most (but not all) FIRSTers, but let me voice an alternative.

Big K makes a very Dew-like drink called "Citrus Drop". This fine beverage tastes just like Dew for only a FRACTION of the cost... and it even has the "Dew look"!

So, save your pennies for that Hurcules ice cream bar at Disney, and buy some Citrus Drop the next time you're at the grocery store. Soon, you'll be sure to "Pop the Drop".

No, I don't work for Big K. I'm just cheap.

Yes, it actually says "Pop the Drop" on the can.

ps... now, get back to work!

We go for the full brand loyalty here at Chief Delphi.

It has got to be True Dew!

No respect these days.. First even considering drinking something besides Dew.. And then going overboard by buying a different brand at a cheaper price!! Just what are people coming to?!

Those who know me well know that it's almost nothing but Dew for me(when I have a choice, at least)...in fact, I think I have enough empty cans right now to start that "Tower of Dew" that I was talking about with somebody in NH...Robby, was that you?

Fran,

Everyone else has no sense. I'm tellin' ya that this Citrus Drop stuff is just as good!

Since you're a Mom, I can trust you to go buy a 12 pack (for about $1), and sneak some into Kate's breakfast the next time she's home.

She'll never know the difference, and you'll be rolling in the moolaa!

Well to tell the truth I actually like Dr. Pepper better also. And check this out... outside our machene shop we have a Soda machene that stays stocked and unlocked so when we want somthing to drink we just go open the door and get it.... hehe pretty nifty if you ask me.

The fact that it even exists shouldn't be legal..
