Yes, good catch. The 1 is added on there to make it a play on the letters, so it comes out to “A Late One”, which I guess means its for help giving you a little caffeine kick at night if you need it.
I asked my wife about Roxa-Kola and she hadn’t heard of it, nor have I. What kind of pop is it?
Yeah, it’s different, but I like ginger ale, so I guess that’s why it appeals to me. My wife is of the same opinion, but she doesn’t like citrus-y or lemon-y type drinks. Like I said, I’m also a fan of Mountain Dew, but don’t care for Sprite.
Well, my wife is not technically a native Kentuckian, she was born and raised in Ohio, so maybe that’s why she hates it? Her parents are from this area, have been for many generations. But since she was born there and lived there for a few years, I call her a Buckeye, which she greatly bristles at.
No, I’m not a native, born and raised in OK. We didn’t have any local pops there. I just liked Mtn Dew more than any other pop. One of my favorite memories was getting a bottle of MD from the general store with my great grandfather when I would spend time with him in the summer.
We’ve had a friend of my wife from Texas come visit us, and she liked Ale-8 when she tried it, so I guess non natives can like it, too.
