Jennifer – TaB Hall of Fame Member!

Jennifer - TaB Hall of Fame Member! When did you start drinking TaB? What were you doing? In college, etc?

Jennifer: I actually only started drinking TaB about two years ago. I saw a six pack at the local grocery store and thought the packaging was so cute. Of course, as a child of the 80s, I knew about TaB (I still remember laughing at the Michael J. Fox TaB line in Back to the Future), but I had never tried any. I wasn’t really much of a soda drinker to begin with…when I would buy any, I would buy Diet Coke…but one day in the grocery store I saw a six-pack and thought, “I’m just going to try it.”

After I tried TaB, I immediately loved it! I thought it tasted better than Diet Coke, and it was cheaper too. Plus, as I mentioned, the color of the can was super cute. There’s just something about it. 🙂 Does anyone else in your family/circle of friends drink TaB?

Jennifer: I am the ONLY person I know who drinks TaB! My husband thinks it’s weird. 🙂 Most of my friends say they have some older aunt or something that still drinks it, but they don’t…I’m trying to convert them as well as my coworkers. How much TaB do you drink daily/weekly/monthly?

Jennifer: I probably consume one to two six-packs a week. As much as I love TaB, I do try to limit my soda intake in general. But it is the only soda I would ever keep in my house. I admit I just had one with my breakfast (I know, so bad.) Is TaB easy to find where you live?

Jennifer: I live in southwest Houston, just a few minutes outside downtown. You can find it at the local Kroger and Randall’s. One time I was picking up a six-pack and ran into a man loading his entire cart with nothing but TaB. He said his wife “bathed in the stuff” and it was not available where they lived…perhaps they lived in a far out suburb or another side of town. However, I have never had trouble finding a six-pack at my grocery stores. Fortunately! Have you ever brought TaB on a trip with you? 🙂

Jennifer: I pack it for lunch every day and have taken it with me on road trips! Any other TaB related anecdotes or stories?

Jennifer: Just the one above, about talking to the man who was loading up his cart. I told him that his wife had good taste.

In addition to just loving the taste of TaB, I find there is something wonderfully retro about drinking it. I love vintage stuff, and drinking TaB feels like a throwback to another time, yet it also just tastes great!
