Maybe I'm crazy, but I remember back in the old Herbco days around 1998 seeing a drink mix like Gatorade is found in for Mello Yello. Only found it in the Altoona area, and thought it was very interesting.
Anyone else have info on this? I don't think I'm hallucinating, what exactly was this product, and how long was it out for?

Wow Titan I would be really interested if you dig anything up about that! As for that sight that Yello pointed out it has some cool pictures but beware it really thrashes your browser and renders like hell. I wonder if that is w3.org compliant? ;)

Just out of curiosity, I loaded the page with 4 different browsers (No lack of browsers for Mac OS X!) and every time, it renders ugly. Could someone e-mail the guy and tell him where he can buy a decent web page building program?

Yeh Shatter I hear ya I have tried it on 4 browser on OS X and like 4 on Windows 98SE and Mozilla on Redhat and it looks like hell on all of them. Cool pictures but the site is a disaster!

I'll see what I can do, but I know the stuff is long gone. When Squirt was under Herbco's control in that region, you saw more Mello Yello in that region then than you do now, when it's the only non-diet citrus CCE has there now.
CCE has little citrus, no Pepper, and no Pibb, and they just changed their orange and grape 3 times in 2 years (Sunkist, Fanta, Minute Maid Valencia)(Welch's, Fanta, MM Grape Medley. No wonder Pepsi beats them in Westcentral PA.
I can see the stuff in my head, it was a powdered concentrate, and I remember it was the first sign of the current Mello Yello logo, the soda still had that outlandish logo from before, I think you've all seen it.
for some reason i love the taste of mello yello
