Tab or no Tab

My last grocery shopping experience was interesting:

I rarely ever just try something new without already tasting it before (boring I know), and I am slightly disappointed with my purchase. 


I was going back and forth in the isle of which cokes to get, and Tab caught my eye. I wasn't sure what it was, but it did look similar to the energy drink I have had before that was in a pink can and looked similar. I even asked the stock boy if it was an energy drink and/or if he had it before .... And he wasn't much help.

So, I splurged and got a lovely 12-pack, and Gabe laughed as I brought it in the door. That was my first "uh-oh" moment!! Well, I tried it and only drank half the can because it tasted like a generic brand or like Diet Rite to me .....

Now, who wants to come over and drink the other 11 cans?!?!

I can't believe Tab even exists anymore! Every time I see it in the grocery store I laugh to myself. I remember those tacky commercials for it in the 80s with "fashionable" women wearing awful 80s outfits and big hair. So funny!

OMG, too funny! Ricky would have given me the same look!

Oh girl...I just had a Back to the Future moment! hahahaha

My momma used to drink Dt. Rite. Yuck. Feeling sorry for your taste buds. xoxo

Heather said...

Oh gosh, I've never even heard of Tab!

Mrs. Buck said...

too funny! but I can relate! I hate when you pick up something new from the store and it doesn't turn out as you had hoped. I had a similar experience at Trader Joe's this evening with one of their rice cracker snacks - too sweet!

My boyfriend went to highschool with Frank Beard, the drummer from ZZ TOP's, sons. He swears by the stuff and will drink like a whole 12 pack during one concert. He even buys it by the truck load. He is probably single handedly keeping TAB in business! ;)

Ewww...TAB is the worst!!! Definitely NO energy drink in that can :)-

Girl...are you sporting a "Michelle" watch like mine? The band looks the same! Miss ya lady.

bride4life said...

You have never heard of TAB? I thought you were a child of the '80's like myself...hehehe

belleinthebigcity said...

I see Tab all of the time at the store and am curious about it, too. It just looks fun! haha But I think I'll take your advice and steer clear.

Oh, and I'm the same way, I won't buy something if I haven't ever tried it before. Good luck with the rest of the cans! lol

Kelsey, you have got to be JOKING!
I Hope Gabe is still laughing at you because I am! I have never had Tab actually, but I can only imagine! AND, I think of you as some crossfit Health nut...and when I think of Tab, I do not think of health! :)))

jenn said...

TAB is like from the 1980s -- ha. ha.
this made me laugh out loud!!!!

ok...i'm still laughing!!!

thank you...

Tab was rocking in the 80's! I saw it about a year ago in the store again and laughed. I almost got one to be nostalgic.

Shannon said...

Haven't heard of this stuff in ages...Feel for ya though!

Mateya said...

Haha! I didn't even know they made this stuff anymore?! My Mom used to drink that stuff all the time!

Em said...

Good for you for trying something new! LOL That's one of my favorite things about living on my own now...buying all of the things at the grocery store that peak my interest or all of the junk food that my mom would never buy! :)

sarah said...

I thought TAB no longer existed! Talk about a blast from the past!

Neely said...

We poured Tab on new cheerleaders during initiation in hs because it was cheap....I sorry

Kickin' Kari said...

I didnt even read the post yet and I saw the pic of the Tab can and immediately said "OH NO!!" oh that stuff is just awful! I totally remember it from way back in the day! Donate it to the food bank maybe??

Sherrie said...

Tab was THE diet soda of the 80s and I drank it ALL the time in high school. I have been afraid to try it these days because I know it won't taste the same without saccharin. LOL!

It probably tasted as bad in the 80s, but there wasn't much diet back then. ;)

Amber said...

Ummm....are you aware that you have850 followers? Seriously....you are sooo the popular girl!

That can looks gross! It makes me want to vomit just looking at it. Maybe you can pour the other 11 cans on your grass and it will help it grow?

Ashton said...

Ugh! Gross... I can't believe you even went there! Ha..

I understand the other side of it.. I wouldn't be able to toss out 11 cans of nasty because I paid $x for them. I'd probably take them to work and try to pawn them off on unsuspecting co-workers. lol..

Have a good night, girl! We'll see ya tomorrow for Wishful Wednesday!

Lindsey said...

Uggghhhh! My mom used to drink Tab when I was little. I tried it once and swore I would never touch it again...and I haven't.
I just can't believe they still make that nasty stuff! Maybe they only make it to trick unsuspecting people into trying it...hmmmmm.

nicole said...

Can't say that I've ever had it! Adma and I always try to get at least one new thing with each shopping trip though. I admire your efforts!

Jamie Pickle said...

I didn't even know Tab was still around. My grandma used to drink Tab all the time when I was younger.

Samantha Levang said...

Hahaha! Tab is totally from the '80s! It reminds me of my post today on Back to the Future when Marty asks for a "Tab" and Lou says "You want a tab? You gotta buy somethin' first!"

Shelby Bukhenik said...

haha I stick to coke or pepsi if I drink soft drinks!!
