OK Cola: “It’s hip to be brainwashed.” I never bought into the whole marketing ploy of this failed soft drink, but I dug the taste (and the kooky artwork). I drank several cans a day during the summer I worked at a prison outside the Twin Cities. Fruitopia was also test marketed that summer, but I never thought it would catch on (via The Stuffed Dog).
Miss the taste of OK Cola? Try this recipe — lately I’ve been drinking a mixture of 50% root-beer / 50% orange juice, which tastes remarkably like an orange cream soda.
