Remembering “Antioxidant” 7-Up Soda: “There’s Never Been a More Delicious Way to Cherry Pick our Antioxidant!”

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Here’s the thing – I’m old enough to remember Never Going To Give You Up / Rick Roll long before ppl started rickrolling each other, but I knew it was wrong back at the time. So you can’t pin that on me. (I thought, “Oh man, what the Hell is this? Is this what cable TV is like?”)

Similarly, there I was at the Fulton Lucky, 94117, and I saw this:

And I thought, “No way. This will not stand, man.

And it didn’t:

7UP To Drop “Antioxidant” Marketing – Company Agrees to Stop Fortifying Soda with Vitamins

7UP Sued Over Antioxidant Claims on Cherry, Mixed Berry, and Pomegranate Flavors – Antioxidant Comes From Illegal Fortification, Not the Named and Pictured Fruits

All right, play us out, Wikipedia:

Cherry 7 Up : A cherry flavored variant introduced in 1987.[18] Cherry7 Up flavor, with these ingredients listed for the United States version: Carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, natural and artificial flavors, potassium benzoate, red 40. One known ingredient among the “natural and artificial flavors” is apple juice. The version sold in the United States is colored pink and comes in a clear bottle, while the international version is colorless and currently comes in a pink bottle. It was renamed and reformulated as Cherry 7 Up Antioxidant in January 2009. Contains 10% of U.S. daily recommended Vitamin E dosage per 8 fl oz serving (4.2% per 100 ml).[19] On November 8, 2012, Dr Pepper Snapple Group said they will pull 7Up with antioxidants off the shelves to reformulate them by 2013. They also said that its decision was not related to the lawsuit,[clarification needed] but because of consistency across the board.[20][21]

Down the Memory Hole – Anti-Gavin Newsom Blog Post Disappears

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Is it possible for a blog post to just disappear in This Day and Age?

Who knows why Cameron Scott’s Thin Green Line bit from yesterday’s SFGate left us. But it went a little something like this: 

“It’s something transit experts imply but never say: The mayor is the problem. Despite his big talk on green efforts, Gavin Newsom does not support public transit when you get right down to it. Two new reports today make that abundantly clear. Last week’s SFWeekly article analyzing Muni’s…”

This off-message message is all gone, and some are compelled to, not unreasonably,  jump to conclusions.  

Anyway, here’s a little more from yesterday’s “Newsom: Not pro-transit

That’s the best I can do.

How about you? Can you find a cached version of the entire bit?

I defy you to try.

Oh! So that’s how it works. I see you what you’re doing there, Google. The N-Judah Chronicles chronicles the story of the cache.

And here are the three other most offensive points from the bit:
