Jen has been a fountain of TaB information and a great help to ILoveTaB.com — she definitely deserves this honor!
She has even gotten her grandson addicted 😉
ILoveTaB.com: When did you start drinking TaB? What were you doing? In college, etc?
Jen: May 1987. My daughter had just turned a year old. I was looking for a diet soda to help take the baby-weight off. My high school friend Andy recommended TaB, which was still available in restaurants, before the Diet Coke takeover. One sip and I was hooked!
ILoveTaB.com: Does anyone else in your family/circle of friends drink TaB?
Jen: My 3 1/2 year-old grandson.
ILoveTaB.com: How much TaB do you drink daily/weekly/monthly
Jen: 10-12 cans per day
ILoveTaB.com: Is TaB easy to find where you live?
Jen: Yes. I am one of the lucky ones. All the grocery stores carry it.
ILoveTaB.com: Have you ever brought TaB on a trip with you?
Jen: No, but on a trip to San Francisco in 1997, (I’m from Indiana), my friend Andy went all the way to Chico to buy me a 12-pak so I’d have some while I visited. [What a great friend!]
ILoveTaB.com: Any other TaB related anecdotes or stories?
Jen: In 1980, I was advertising manager for my high school yearbook. One of the ads I sold was to the local Coca-Cola bottler. He explained that the name “TaB” came from the number of calories, for dieters’ information: Two A Bottle. [Interesting story, though the official Coke story is a bit different]
Thanks Jen, and welcome to the best club in the world 🙂
