Cooking with 7-UP

"You like likes you!"

Wow, what a stellar slogan. Good thing they followed it up with an even more stellar idea - cooking with it!
"Seven-Up added to a prepared pie crust makes for a flakier crust."

7-UP Salad:
1 pkg lime Jello
1 c apple sauce
1 bottle seven-up
Where do they come up with these things??

So it looks like 7-UP's secret is to replace any liquid in a recipe with....7-UP?

Get your kid to drink milk by adding 7-UP to it!

"Mothers know that this is a wholesome combination. The addition of 7-UP gives milk a new flavor appeal that especially pleases children." Duh. It's soda.

I love product-specific recipes. I always feel sorry for all those cooks who had to slave away in a test kitchen with odd products to make an entire book of recipes. Think of the desperation as they started to run out of ideas.

Just wait til I share the Kraft Foods Cookbook! No shortage of products but a huge deficiency of nutrition!

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving everyone! To be sure, I am eating plate-fulls of food that I will look back on in revulsion in 30 years time. Enjoy!
