On a recent trip to the super market, these two items caught me by surprise.

    Whats the problem with Orangina?

    That’s just the French version of orange juice and sparkling water.

    Don’t see anything worth snapping a picture of and posting in any of them. Well, okay, with a rather long stretch you can read some vague innuendo into the names ( Orangina more than the other one ). Still, there’s no accounting for dirty minds.

    And Orangina rocks.

    Is that bear puking birds or rose petals?

    @AliceH: ….flames.

    When did Orangina come to the states? I love that stuff.

    Tyger42

    Don’t know when. I didn’t notice it ’til I saw it in the fridge of a friend locally. Looked for it at Kroger and found it pretty easy. But I don’t have a clue how long they’ve carried it.

    pink flames? I can guess what demographic that wine’s marketed to…

    Orangina has been available in the US since the late ’80s, if memory serves.

    Mix it with some vodka and you have a sparkling screw.

    Oranginas been in the states for quite some time now, i know it is all over new jersey and every other market in south carolina carries it.

    I guess I wasn’t looking that hard. I shouldn’t drink the stuff anyway.

    @AliceH: Pink? Are you colorblind? They’re orange and red. Mostly orange, though.

    AliceH

    Is there such a thing as pink-orange colorblindness?

    Orangina can be found in import stores mainly. Least I think. I see it in World Market, and my favorite little mom and pop import store.

    However, I was much to distracted over the can of ‘spotted dick’ than I was over the Orangina. I’m going to have to post pictures of that stuff. . .

    Is it really true that orangina, which we in the NY/NJ/CT region have been rhyming with vagina for decades is unknown in other parts of the country?

    It makes me wonder what delicious products are available elsewhere that I am not familiar with?

    I remember my sister drinking a lot of Mello Yello on a trip back in 1986.

    @the_fascist_rabbit: In France during the 70s they had Orangina and Citro-something (lemon-lime version of Orangina) and I loved that stuff. I was allowed 1 a week along w/ some sort of cookie w/ dark chocolate. I just remember thinking it was heaven. The combo just worked…taste-wise.

    I love oringina, but it is hard to find in big bottles. Typically we pronounce it Orange-eena… doesnt rhyme with vagina.

    AbNo

    @nyokki:

    Um, years back. They had it in a Kroger in the MIDDLE OF FRICKIN’ GEORGIA five years ago.
