considering driving three hours to the Quebec border to buy as much five alive as I can fit in my fridge

@nurotoxxyn it is a juice blend that its sold in cans or concentrate, apparently they had it only in the 1980s in the US but in Canada and Europe it remains widely available. It is very tasty. Good pineapple flavor

@alex ohhhhh that sounds good; yeah i don't think I've EVER seen that, and ya boi loves pineapple and drinks that incorporate it

@alex now that's a name I have not heard in a long time, a long time.

I remember it being around when I was a kid but haven't noticed it in years (but haven't gone looking for it either)

@alex ahhh yeah good graphic design, I remembered the carton pretty accurately

@alex We have this in the orange juice section in WI. Not frozen, though, just cartons.

Like visit any Roundy's store (Pick 'n Save, Copps, etc.) and it'll be nestled there, fully stocked, right by the Simply Orange. You could probably find it most places around here.

@alex I have heard of it but I don’t remember if it’s a juice or a candy

@alex we used to but I don't see it anywhere anymore, that I recall.

Juice trends are fickle here.


istr it used to be a thing in the US as a frozen concentrate

@alex They did at one point! It's been a long time since I've seen it; if it's still around, it'd be a regional thing.

@alex we did, once upon a time. We never had BEEP tho

@alex I remember the jingle. Take five, five alive etc
