"CathyC" presumes her predilections are universally shared:
Hawaiian Punch was one of the most disgusting things ever created. It makes Tang seem delicious.
Oh, I don't doubt HP is a rather unhealthy beverage, and I'll grant that the American food industry's deletion of the infamous carcinogen Red Dye #2--circa 1966, correct?--perhaps lulled me into the false impression that HP wouldn't kill me in the short run or even in the long. Meanwhile, I strongly dislike the taste of unflavored as well as flavored coffee, and positively DETEST the taste of every variety of tea I've ever tried, hot or ice-cold. The Brits sure seem to like it, though!
And I'm hardly someone with capricious beverages preferences; alcohol does not agree with me, so I average maybe a couple beers per year (and find the taste of only a handful brands good tasting) and positively savor Classic Coca-Cola (whenever I'm not dieting) and Diet Coke alike, while correspondingly abhorring Pepsi and Diet Pepsi. Take THAT, Hef!
Oh, and I enthusiastically accepted the famed Pepsi Challenge some half-dozen times in malls in St. Louis, Houston and Los Angeles in the late 70s and early 80s, every time IMMEDIATELY (and, of course, successfully) identifying the unlabeled cup containing what would after the New Coke catastrophe was of course famously rebranded as Classic Coca-Cola.
Anyway, while you dismiss HP and Tang as liquid Edsels, I actually found even Tang tasty, though also obviously non-citrus. But I'm puzzled by your employment of the past tense; have either HP and or Tang been discontinued, and if so, when?
And if the NASA astronauts' favorite drink Tang is purely in the past nowadays, how are we ever going to reach Mars?
