Man, when was the last time I had Yoo-Hoo? Probably twenty years ago, at least. Ugh. I don’t want to get all heavy about my Early Circumstances, but Yoo-Hoo was one of the beverages of my youth that my dad and brother both loved and I couldn’t stand. Moxie being the other. My inability to chug those bevs along with the other men in the family is basically how I ended up casting my lot in with the women-folk, and well, I guess you know the rest. I showed you my therapy bill that one time.
But a lot can change in 20 years–I did turn out heterosexual, Dad, and apparently Yoo-Hoo now comes in a host of different flavors! Who knew! Not me.
With a name like “Dyna-Mocha”, you’d expect the beverage to absolutely decimate your preconceived notions about the mixing of coffee and chocolate, and that is exactly what it does. OK not really, but they seem to have the science down. I’ve still got the empty Dyna-Mocha bottle on my desk and dang I would love another one. If only I could share the moment with my father. O, to have those twenty years back!
Dad? Can you hear me up there, Dad? I found a Yoo-Hoo I like, Daddy. Your boy finally found a Yoo-Hoo he likes. *uncontrollable sobs* Hold on, my Dad’s not dead.
