Fuel to be fabulous
The appearance of a new low calorie energy drink might go unremarked were it not a portent of yet greater things to come. For is it not written in the sacred scrolls that feathered hair shall once again be "in"? I gather this new concoction has a taste “reminiscent of a liquid Jolly Rancher”; surely an omen to set against a mere Imam, twelfth or otherwise.
That's TaB, btw.

Thankk God. I entirely lapsed in my passion for eating wedges of blue cheese of a pound or more at one sitting since the day I was not longer able to enjoy it with the Robust Flavour of Tab.

I am delighted the brand has returned though I would be happier still if they were to resurrect the original drink with it. Though my embargo on diet beverages would tend to mitigate my enjoyment of its robust flavour.
I have to admit to being more of a Fresca man. Fresca and Ring-A-Ding Jrs. To hell with the undocumented side affects!

I must admit, I didn't notice the wedge of Roquefort in that picture. But I blame its subliminal influence for making me think: "You know, even with that nasty petrochemical aftertaste, Tab really does have a certain chic, continental je ne sais quoi..."
I don't know on what level the ad works best for me: the cheese, the TaB or the mustard-colored smoking jacket. I want all three. At once.
I remember in Back to the Future when Marty McFly goes into the cafe circa 1955 and asks for a "TaB". The server responds, "How can I run you a tab when you haven't ordered anything?"
Marty McFly knew about Robust Flavor.

Daryl Zero knew robust flavor, too. Big time.
