Five Alive

I’m not sure you can buy this anymore, but I remember it being unfathomably good. It had the juices of five fruits, people. FIVE. (They were tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, and orange.) And like in the commercial, Five Alive gave five-year-old me the sonic jolt that today can only be provided by my customary eight cups of morning coffee.
