    My Mezzo Mix Story

    The whole Ice Station Cool/Club LameName thing has brought a lot of good memories to my mind lately. ISC eventually became my favorite thing about Epcot. I just hope the free sodas return, especially Mezzo. In light of the recent attention to the subject, heres a good story,

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEARS ago...

    Back when I rarely made the trip from San Antonio to Epcot, I stopped in Ice Station Cool. On that day, my friends and I found a new love for the Orange tinted cola, Mezzo Mix. We found ourselves making a trip every hour to sample the citrus-laced fizzy. If you know Epcot, you know how long of a walk it is from the American Adventure to Innoventions, but we tirelessly made it every time.

    Well, on one of those trips back inside the ISC, or "The Hop" as we liked to call it, I stumbled on the brilliant idea of paying for one of those 3 foot tall Coke bottle coin banks and filling it with our delectable MezzObsession. After 13 minutes of constant filling, we filled it up.

    But, and I consider this a big turning point in my life, a few things didn't go as planned:

    1. Whilst carrying around a 3 foot tall plastic bottle filled with soda, it leaves at least one of the members of your party to have "Soda Babysitting" duty. Not fun.

    2. The lack of a 3 foot long straw makes drinking out of our Mezzopotamia quite a task. It took two to lift, one to drink.

    3. You get a lot of wierd looks from guests.

    4. I didn't know Florida had flies until we created this 3 foot tall beacon for them.

    5. The container wasn't exactly "leak proof"

    6. Mezzo Mix is quite good, but... well, you kind of get sick after your third gallon.

    7. Ellen and Bill Nye totally changed our lives on that sugar high.


    So there we are, bloated, destroyed, and quite sick from Mezzo overload. I'm not a female, but I think that's as close as I'll ever come to feeling menstrual pains. As good ol' Walt's punishment for abusing "The Hop's" magical juice, two things occurred:
    A friend and I both ralphed in front of the roman empire in ruins on SSE. Also, in a freak of science in which none can explain, a half-full juggarnaut of Mezzo spontaneously combusted all over one of my friends, leaving him sticky the rest of the afternoon. Out of this whole time, however, I was really intrigued by the fact that not a single cast member said anything to us.

    There really isn't a moral to this story because I'm sure no one is as dumb as I was back then. I hope you enjoyed it, however.

    Stupid? Yes.. I'll agree. At least we didn't have to pay our life savings for a Coke at the park. But freedom doesn't come without a price, my friend.

    Hmm.. college was fun.

    There's a moral to this story... Atleast it wasn't with Beverly.

    In the St. Hedwig/East Central side, but I was going to Incarnate Word University at the time. I had lived there all of my life and I just moved to Oklahoma about 4 years ago and transferred to OU.

    Well, I just like to call it "dumb integrity." Just like putting CD's into a microwave... you don't know why you really do it.

    Okay that was a funny story... I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    But don't the CMs get mad when you fill up containers with pop? If not I so would have filled part of my nalgene with some Mezzo Mix or Smart Watermelon, or even Vegibata.

    *sigh*

    It makes me sad to know that Ice Station Cool will be closed while I'm down there in 10 days (yes finally only 10 days!) I used to love getting the little samples of pop, even the beverely. Hopefully when it re-opens you can buy cups or bottles.

    Speaking in a Mezzo Mix story though, does anyone know where you can source it online? My little brother is a freak for Mezzo Mix, and when we went to Germany it would be all he would drink and he was looking forward to it, even having not been to Disneyworld for over two years I'd love to pick some up for him for Christmas this year.

    Re: My Mezzo Mix Story

    Found a recipe for Mezzo Mix:

    Mezzo mix - Mix Coke and Fanta in equal amounts. Sold as a whole new drink, although some places (bars and restaurants) will just mixt the two on site (tastes the same). Not too bad actually - the Coca Cola Company effectively generated a whole new product with minimal investment - I'm surprised it's never seen outside Germany

    I'm not sure if I'll regret asking, but what's a nalgene? Is it anything like a henway?

    We do this all the time, Coke and Fanta Orange - it's darn close if you get the mixture right. We've been doing that ever since living in Germany while I was in Kindergarten (lived there 3 different times, 3 years each, for a total of 9 years) since we'd crave it after leaving there.
