Thx, But I'm Not Thirsty Anymore

Or perhaps ever again.

While visiting the West Acres Mall in Fargo last week, I came across a kiosk called "The Old 52 General Store". It was a smaller version of a local emporium just south of Moorhead that stocks "mock vintage" toys, candy and soda pop.

Because I am both a cat owner and blogger, I just couldn't pass up purchasing the following:

Kitty Piddle Soda PopThe ingredients are as follows:

Pineapple and Orange flavor.

Carbonated water, pure cane sugar, natural and artificial flavors and colors, citric acid and sodium benzoate (a preservative).

The only thing that worries me....

I'm afraid to discover what the hell those "natural" flavors could possibly be.

I would buy a case of this for my wife if I could find it.

ReformingGeek said...

None for me, thanks!

;-)

Daisy said...

Hmmm. Now I am wondering if my potty tastes like pineapple and orange flavor. It is yellow...

Lisa (Jonny's Mommy) said...

Mmmmm...me likes me some kitty piddle...or was that kiddy piddle? Or kitty puddle? Or....


well, anyhow, it seriously sounds yucky. We'll have to ask Daisy to sample it for us.

Mamma said...

Okay I have a cat and there is nothing that smells worse that cat pee. I'd be terrified!!

Louise said...

Hmmmm... maybe just something to look at and not drink!

The Green Stone Woman said...

Natural flavor would mean natural odor too and you would find out as soon as you'd open the bottle. Phew! I mustn't even think of it.

Maureen:

Very funny. They could be dried deer antlers! But you only live once. Might as well try something new.

Happy trails.

Jill/Twipply Skwood said...

It's amazing they can sell enough of that to be worth it. :-0

JoJo said...

Killer! Makes me wish I was headed to Canada this year so I could find some. Last time I was up there I couldn't resist buying a can of "Saskatoon Berry Beaver Buzz" energy drink. The drink was wretched, but I kept the can for snickers. lol

Whiney Momma said...

OMG, that is so hilarious!

Maureen said...

Bruce: Ha! Your wife LIKES cat pee???

Reforming Geek: Aw, you won't join me for a refreshing drink? Rats. Looks like I'm drinking alone. Again.

Daisy: Ha!!! Well, you ARE sweet! Let us all know what you find out, K? Then maybe I'll open the bottle.... ;)

Lisa: No matter how you say it, it still sounds disgusting. Yes, I KNEW this would interest Daisy!

Mamma: You know what is worse than cat pee? THREE cats pee...

Louise: Yeah, for now it is definitely sitting on the counter... still sealed.

The Green Stone Woman: Yes, you are right! I will definitely smell before tasting... if I work up the courage to open it, that is.

Swubird: Yes, but that's what worries me; I only live ONCE.

Jill: I know! They also sold "Dog Drool"...

Jo-Jo: Ha! But I found these in the good old US of A... I shall check out that Saskatoon Berry Beaver Buzz drink. Sounds yummy.

Whiney Momma: Sure. It's funny until someone dares you to DRINK it.

VE said...

Sounds delicious. I'm sure it would go well with my poo brownie...

Maureen said...

VE: Yes, I do believe they were made for each other....

Jeff said...

Of course it's disgusting and gross... it SAYS SO right on the label!

Too funny.

Lady Banana said...

Hmmmm I think I'll pass on this one..lol

Maureen said...

Jeff: Um, yeah, I guess I SHOULD have read the label, eh? ;)

Lady Banana: What? You don't like pineapple?????

toners said...

I'd bring it home and see what my own furbabies thought of it :)

Venom said...

You are brave! Just the name turns me off.
p.s. If you come out to BBQ with us, don't worry, I'll supply the drinks.

Even Crabby Steve's horsetrough hootch sounds better than kitty piddle...

The Green Stone Woman said...

Yeah, but kitty piddle is very authentic!

Tony Single said...

Mmmm... kitty piddle. It has healing properties don'cha know. Yep, I would totally yum that down... :p

Vegas Princess said...

The label alone is worth the purchase. You can drink it with a Kitty Litter pan cake. :)

Maureen said...

Toners: Ha! You know I STILL haven't opened it!

Venom: Ooooh, you know, we live close enough to meet one day... hubby used to live in the Interlake...

The Green Stone Woman: Sometimes Authentic isn't always good!

Tony: Ah! I sure wouldn't want whatever it is you need THAT to be healed from!!!

Vegas Princess: Har! I HAVE seen Kitty litter cake! Awesomely disgusting!!! But you're right; it sure would be the perfect accompaniment!

Jessica said...

I just stumbled across this post, and I wanted to let you know that this is available online from Old 52 at www.shopOld52.com. There is a whole line of these Avery's SODAgusting sodas, including Dog Drool, Swamp Juice, and Monster Mucus. These sodas are inspired by the concoctions created by Avery's young soda makers in their "Make Your Own Soda" program.

Thanks,

Jessica Mammenga
Old 52 General Store

Maureen said...

Thanks for popping by Jessica! Of course, you know we are all just kidding. I returned and got the Dog Drool the next time... and one with Orca on the label. I think they are great!
