Popeye


Chester isn't too far from where I live.  I've been there many, many times.  It's a small Southern Illinois town with less than 9000 people that's famous for being the home of Popeye.  Or more accurately, the home of Popeye's creator, E. C. Segar.  Segar was born in Chester and lived there until he moved in his early twenties.

So I thought it was pretty cool when someone recently gave this Popeye Energy can to me.  The front of the can is covered with Popeye cartoon strips.

This flavor is Clobberin Clementine.  The other flavor available is Bruiser Blackberry.

It says it has natural caffeine and contains nothing artificial.  So of course I had to examine the contents to see if there's any
spinach in it.  None.

Also missing from the ingredients is Olive Oyl!

Peace from Texas

My daughter recently returned from spending a week at the University of Texas at Dallas attending a youth leadership conference.

When she returned, she was handing out souvenirs that she got everyone and to me she handed a heavy plastic bag.  I could immediately tell they were cans, but had no idea how many or what they were.

We checked out all seven cans of Peace Tea, each flavor sounding more delicious than the previous one.  She had even taken a picture of all seven cans in her dorm room at the college (seen to the left).



The flavors are:
1. Razzleberry
2. Texas Style Sweet Tea
3. Georgia Peach
4. Sweet Lemon
5. Green Tea
6. Sno-Berry
7. Caddy Shack

In the end, we both got something out of her trip to Texas :)
