Flash forward 23 years and I am now a bonafide Diet Coke junkie aficionado! Which brings me to one of my favorite birthday presents.
My friend Ann gave me a Sonic Cup for my birthday!
Actually, a sonic cup with a gift card in it. Brilliant.
Is that the cutest wrapping ever??
If you don't know what the big deal with the Sonic Route 44 Diet Coke is, well it's hard to explain, but that beautiful cup is part of the magic. It's styrofoam, so aside from being totally earth unfriendly, it is like having your own little cooler for your precious Diet Coke. I am not too proud to tell you I have to drive nearly 16 big city blocks (one way) every morning to get one. But when I am still enjoying that icy sweet nectar 4 hours later - well its all worth it.
If you still don't get it, just drink one whole Sonic Route 44 Diet Coke with Limes- the entire thing- and then you will know.
