Got Fizzz? Erin Does!

Or will soon...yep, for her victory in SoSG March Madness, Erin will be receiving nothing less than a 4-pack of the beverage to which she owes her victory: Mauby Fizzz!

It wasn't easy to procure. Of course I first went to my regular Trinidadian soda guy, but he couldn't come up with the goods. I then went to a few Caribbean restaurants and grocers in the general area, with no luck. But all's well that ends well, and this one ended with me shipping home a small bagful of the Fizzz from a not-so-local Trinidadian supplier after buying out their on-hand inventory (thanks to the good folks at Uncommon Caribbean for giving me the lead that finally came through).

So congratulations once again Erin. The above foursome of Mauby Fizzz should arrive in the next couple weeks. You can do with it what you wish: drink it all immediately, share with those who tolerated your obsession with your march to victory, hoard for yourself, or resell for street value.

But, if and when you do try a bottle, we invite you to send us a piece about how the experience changed your life, energized your soul, reset your priorities, etc. Because although I got a bottle for myself, I haven't yet gathered the courage to try it myself.

Sax, I feel your pain :( I need more badges!

Erin, enjoy your prize! I'm curious about the "light" version

Yorvit Torrealba badge (double) in the house! Rangers up 2-0 in the eighth

@FB &DB - I bet it mixes well with Slivovitz.

Steve Sax said...

...which is awesome since according to Gameday, Torrealba is 0-for-3 today. Michael Young and Mitch Moreland got doubles, but not Yorvit (or Myvit, for that matter).

Light Mauby Fizzz probably has less calories, but the same amount of extra Zs

Steve Sax said...
