I'd pretty much given up trying to recapture the flavors of my childhood--the candies and chewing gums are either vanished or modified to include "corn sweetener" (even the name sounds unappealing). But on a recent trip to Mexico I re-encountered the grapefruit soda, Squirt. It tasted just like I remembered it from my Minnesota youth. Too bad they didn't have Old Dutch Potato Chips to go with it.
I looked for it here in the supermarkets and at Total Wine, but I haven't seen it. Anyone have any leads? Failing that, is there another grapefruit soda that tastes like Squirt?
