Talking Tahitian Treat Soda

When I was a little fellow, my grandfather used to drink Tahitian Treat, a RED, Fruity soda. I didn't ever try it, and he can't drink it because he's now a diabetic.

Well, guess what popped up in the canteen at work? Good old Tahitian Treat. I tried it out of curiousity, and it wasn't bad.

Been thinking about grabbing a Tahitian Treat, and heading over to the grandparents to watch Emergency reruns on TVLand.

That would really be a Time Warp.

WOW!

I didn't know they still made that stuff. I haven't seen it in years!

I used to love it as a kid, I'll have to look for it.

IIRC it's a "Canada Dry" brand product (or at least, used to be).

Yeah, I was shocked to see it too. I'm 37, and I was probably 8 when I was seeing my grandfather drink it.

I googled it, but didn't find much info.

I used to pick up a 2 liter of that now and then. I haven't thought of TT for awhile-- I need to see if they have it around here.

I remember when the SuperAmerica (Minnesota 7-11) by my house got TT on their fountain many moons ago. It was my drink of choice for quite awhile.

So weird. I was in PA last week and actually looked in a few stores specifically for Tahitian Treat. I love that stuff and I can't find it in N.E. It's actually "fruit punch" soda.

If anyone finds some, please post where!

What is "Giant Eagle"? A supermarket? I was in a "Giant" supermarket in PA and they didn't have it.

Scooterboy: just buy it off the internet and you're done.

Around Michigan I regularly see it at Meijer, gas stations and convenience stores. One of the sugariest sodas out there... but it definitely tastes like childhood.

Yes, Giant Eagle is a supermarket. It's Pittsburgh based and can be found in roughly half of PA and about a third of Ohio.

Yes, but it's a pretty pricey option. I'll be headed back down to PA soon, so I'd rather buy it there if I can find it.
