A couple of Saturday mornings ago, I got a call from Jeremy on his way to Home Depot to buy the materials for his Halloween, 2022 costume.
Apparently, there is a new-to-him, honey and peach-flavored Mountain Dew drink called Sweet Lightning, exclusively available at Kentucky Fried Chicken outlets. It is described by Pepsi Cola, the drink’s producer, as developed with KFC specifically to go with the chain’s secret-recipe-fried-chicken.
It is made of: carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, natural and artificial flavor, sodium benzoate, caffeine, sodium citrate, yellow 5, acesulfame potassium, gum Arabic, sucralose, calcium disodium edta, yellow 6 and sucrose acetate isobutyrate.
You might ask why a 50-year-old would go to the time, trouble and expense (e.g., buying a new garbage can) for a Halloween costume.
I would not.
