Answered Prayers

It's no secret that I'm a diet soda junkie. While I've cut back juuuuust a smidge, My taste buds still long for the carbonation and aspartame to dance across them. Not just any diet soda will do, however. No, no, it must be flavored, and typically the more flavor chemicals involved, the better. When Pepsi introduced Pepsi Jazz I was hooked immediately. The Black Cherry French Vanilla became a staple in my diet (yes, entire diet). When they discontinued it, my soul, heart and spirit were crushed. To date, nothing has been able to take its place.
During a quick jaunt to Target this afternoon to purchase a Diet Dr. Pepper, a flash of red in a nearby cooler caught my attention. Intrigued I went to examine and discovered Cherry Vanilla Pepsi. I was almost tempted to take a caloric hit and try this new gem when I saw beside it the diet version. Before I counted my prayers answered, though, I kept my reality in check knowing that it may taste differently than the heavenly Jazz version. Not to worry, my dear friends... it is EXACTLY the same. I may or may not have cried tears of joy now that my life is once again complete.

Isn't there a cherry vanilla diet DP? I'm not into flavored drinks, but I think I've seen that one around.

Congrats on your find.:)
