Mt. Cat Has his own Soda !!

Back before Christmas I was in our local Food Lion grocery store picking up a few things to fix the family dinner and happened to wander down the soda isle and that is when I saw it. There it was. Mountain Lion Soda! I was transfixed because I can finally say that my life is complete. I know someone who has their own soda. Not only that but it's one of my best friend's in the world and fellow sometimes blog mate the Mt. Cat. Yeah so what if it is a cheap generic knock off of 'The Dew' and he has never actually tasted it's sweet Yellow #5 infused high fructosey goodness? HE STILL HAS HIS OWN SODA (and no it's not Pop - See it even says so on the side of the box)

Those who have been reading here for awhile know that the nickname Mt. Cat came as a shortened version of his real last name which literally translated to English from Italian means "Mountain Lion. " (It became Mt. Cat because Mountain Lion was too long to fit on a license plate... no really I'm serious)

After this revelation I had to purchase some. $1.77 for a 12 pack, hey it's worth it! I called said Mt. Cat and informed him that he had his own soda. He was quite jealous as I drank this nectar of the gods while he thirstily listened on the other end of the phone smacking his parched lips. "So what does it taste like?"

"Ummm well it kinda tastes like a metallic version of Mountain Dew." I reply. "Here's what you do. Go buy a Mountain Dew and then bite down on a penny just before taking a gulp!" He was less than impressed but that doesn't change his elation that regardless of quality has still his own soda. Does A-Rod have his own soda? No. How about Brad Pitt or even Barack Obama? Heck no... You have to be some kind of special to rate your own soda. (Even if you can't buy it where you live). I bet none of you have your own soda... The closest I come is a knock off brand of Dr. Pepper called Dr. Perky... ummm I don't think so.

Go grab some Mountain Lion and enjoy!

I can see they really went all out on the design of the can. I guess they were going for that "subtle" look. Cheers Doc!!

Well, I actually stumbled across some candy named after me while visiting Panama. It translates in English to "Sweet and Tasty". The makers clearly must have been thinking about me.

Mandy said...

Ummm, no. I agree, Dr. Perky would not be named after you, lol.

Karen said...

I remember when Vin put that up on facebook. Love it.

While ARod might not have his own drink, don't forget that Tiger does (but Gatorade cut off production when the scandal broke.)

I guess it takes a certain type of guy to get his own drink.

Sounds like one of those generic brand sodas you find in the grocery store.

The Mountain Cat said...

I put my blood, sweat and tears into creating the formula for that drink. Literally!

Just me... said...

A metallic Mountain Dew.. Makes you want to run right out and buy a case!!
Yeah, no.. :):)

Doc said...

Yes ladies and Gents it takes a special kind of man to have his own soda...

Evil Twin's Wife said...

I do have a food product that shares my name, although I'm pretty sure it came first (and no, I'm not named "after" it, just coincidental!).

Sis Chris said...

LOL!! Just fabulous!

The Mountain Cat said...

Doc,
If you had a soda it would be 'Dr. Grapefruit' since you love those Greyhound cocktails so much! LOL

Doc said...

They should make a Dr. Beer... Beer flavored soda!

The Mountain Cat said...

Or how about Doc Holliday's Huckleberry Soda?

Micky-T said...

You "WILL" send him some of course!!!

Doc said...

Mic... He is gonna have to come and visit to try some... (or just get a Mt. Dew and a penny)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Seriously?! Mountain CAT! I love it! SEND ME SOME!!!!

Four Dinners said...

Anybody with a drink named after them is worthy of respect...sadly it's not alcoholic...now that would be respect!!!!

terri said...

$1.77 for a twelve pack? Great name better price.

Candice said...

I think I'll just stick with good ol' H20.;)

Dana said...

I want Mountain Lion! We have Mountain Chill out this way!

Will Shealy said...

It probably tastes like that since money was likely either saved on the alloy container, or they're piping it through lead pipes. This is Food Lion we're talking about - not known for quality.
