Great Moments: Strawberry Crush

It was summer.  It was hot.  I was a Saturday and I was working at the cleaners. I'm not sure how old I was, maybe 16, maybe younger. Anyhow I was going to clean the filter, then mow the property. Both were hot jobs and by the time I was finished I was hot and sweaty. I went over to the liquor store next door where they had a soda vending machine outside, which just happened to have Strawberry Crush.

The best thing about this particular vending machine was that the drinks in it were super cold.  I purchased a Strawberry Crush and the first sip of that super cold Crush is something I will never forget.  Strawberry Crush can be a bit sweet to say the least, but super cold like that it didn't taste so sweet and was super smooth and refreshing compared to say a Coke.

Always remember that day and that Crush.  It probably tops my list of soda memories.

The cool thing is another one of my favorite soda moments also involves Crush, but this time an Orange Crush.


  1. I love the "Great Moments" label, which I had not noticed on the great Nutcracker post.

  2. One of my favorite movies of all time is Office Space, and one of the reasons is Jennifer Anniston's Big Gulp in this scene, which recalls so many Soda Memories of mine involving women in passenger seats of cars.
