RememBear This: Squeezit
Pure 100% drinkable sugar! These things were awesome. They had great flavors with great names, Chucklin’ Cherry, Berry B. Wild, Grumpy Grape/Gallopin’ Grape, Silly Billy Strawberry, Rockin’ Red Puncher, Mean Green Puncher, Smarty Arty Orange, and Troppi Tropical Punch.
After watching my afternoon episodes of Out of This World and The Adventures of Pete & Pete, me and my brothers would gather for a little Don’t Wake Daddy or Mousetrap. We ran to the fridge in the garage (we had an extra two freezers and a fridge because there were so many of us) and each grab our favorite Squeezit. Mine was Berry B. Wild!
For some reason it was the bee’s knees to twist that plastic cap off….and then squeeze the sweet nectar into your mouth. The only problem is that I’d be finished with it in about as much time as it took me to pop the top….needless to say I ran back to grab another….and another…..and quite possibly another (matter of fact I’m surprised I don’t have Type 2 Diabetes).
Do you remember when they had the mystery flavor in the black bottles? What did you think the flavor was? Sadly these had to have gone the way of the Dodo bird. There is however an online petition to bring them back, I suggest you all go right now and fill it out.
What’s your favorite squeezable treat? Although not a treat per se, due to nostalgic factors, I’ve got to go with Aquafresh.
