In my three
years of learning Spanish (most of which I've long-since forgotten), I
never knew that Nintendo had cornered the Lemonado (aka: lemonade) market.
Yes indeed, what better way to quench your thirst on those hot summer days
than with a can of Super Mario Lemonado that costs a buck and is the size
of a shot glass? You know, I think from this day forth, anytime I see
lemonade, I'm going to refer to it as "Lemonado" and I suggest you all do
the same. Today... Lemonado. Tommorow... a long nap.
really have anything else to say about Super Mario Lemonado. I'm FAR too
fixated on the other can in the photo: MR. BLOBBY PINK LEMONADE! I
don't know who Mr. Blobby is. I don't know what Mr. Blobby is. Perhaps
he's a long lost relative of Kirby? Perhaps Kirby and the blob from "A Boy
and his Blob" had a kid? Unfortunately, we may never know. But mark my
words people, I WILL get my hands on a can of MR. BLOBBY PINK
LEMONADE before I die and chug down all of its pink, blobby goodness!
Thanks to all of you people in the UK for emailing me with tons of info on
Mr. Blobby. I now know more about Mr. Blobby than any human being should.
One person might even be sending me some of the pink lemonade, so I'll
keep you guys posted.)
Super Mario Soda!
Nintendo beverages that were a bit easier to come by were the Super Mario
sodas. The flavors were Mario Punch, Luigi Berry, Princess Toadstool
Cherry and Yoshi Apple. Nothing really amazing about the sodas themselves
(the Luigi and Yoshi flavors were the best of the bunch if you ask me),
but the cans have become collector's items over the years.
