So many wonderful items came out that I wish I could have tried. One that has always been high on my list was the Flintstones’ Yabba Dabba Dew. It was one of those things that I was made aware of because I had older sisters. They were big fans of it when it came out and one of them scored this sweet Fred Flintstone cup from Arthur Treacher’s. I drank HI-C out of that cup well into the late 1980s and every time my sister saw me doing so she would tell me how much she missed the Flintstones Dew.
I still to this day wonder what it tasted like and why it went away.
