Carly and I were driving through Uptown today when we had a hankering for some caffeine. We pulled in to Loon Express Marathon gas station at 28th & Lyndale to get our fix. After navigating past a pretty significant porn magazine rack, we found the coolers where I had my first encounter with Cherry Chocolate Rain – aka. Diet Dr Pepper Chocolate Cherry pop.
As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to try it to see what Tay Zonday was talking about in this video:
After navigating past the incense and pot pipes, I threw down for the $0.99 (on special) beverage, snapped this photo outside, and took in my first cherry chocolate rain.
I must say, it was surprisingly not bad. While I was expecting an aggressive chemical burn from the first sip, that wasn’t the case. It’s actually drinkable.
