“My name is Miss Pop Rocks, and Iâ€™m a Tab addict. I just wanted you to know that. And I wanted you to know that itâ€™s safe to admit that you may be a Tab addict too.
Tab. Just saying the name makes me feel cuter. And thinner. Tab. That delicious manna from Heaven that keeps your waistline trim and comes in an adorable little pink can. Pink!
Of course, loving the totally 80s diet soda comes with its challenges. There are only a few Krogers near my house that carry it, and I have yet to find a restaurant in the Houston area that offers it. During the lunch break at my place of employment, Iâ€™m forced to listen to such comments as, â€œOh my God, do they still make Tab?â€�, â€œAre you seriously drinking Tab?â€� and, from the younger set, â€œWhatâ€™s Tab?â€� I was starting to feel alone, lost, and out of place.
Then I found http://www.ilovetab.com, a Web site devoted to the joy that is the Tab product. And suddenly all was right with the world again.
According to http://www.ilovetab.com, I am in the company of such celebs as Andy Warhol, Mary Louise Parker, Kellie Martin, Rachael Ray, Tori Spelling, and Houstonâ€™s own ZZ Top. In addition, I discovered that Tab has been name-checked and spotted in such films as â€œFletch Lives,â€� â€œAirplane II,â€� and every one of the Austin Powers movies. In the novel â€œLess Than Zero,â€� by Bret Easton Ellis, thereâ€™s a mention of Tab in at least three places, and the drink also pops up in the recent Pulitzer Prize winning â€œMiddlesexâ€� by Jeffrey Eugenides (page 335 to be exact).
I was informed by my Tab friends that despite nasty urban myths to the contrary, Tab does not give you cancer! (Not that that would have stopped me from drinking it.) There are even links on the site that connect you to places that sell super cute Tab tees.
So to my fellow Tab lovers, never fear. The next time someone makes fun of you for drinking Tab, roll your eyes and remind them that youâ€™re not alone. Remember, ZZ Top drinks Tab, too. ”
