In the mid eighties, Ocean Spray released a Hawaiian themed guava based drink they called Mauna La’i and I was hooked. This tasty beverage was a staple of my Polynesian dream world whenever I could talk my Mother into buying a bottle. The great thing about it? My sisters both hated it. They complained that it tasted like a weak Capri Sun. This meant that from the first glass to the last glass, this beverage was all mine.
Eventually I would move on to the more flavorful POG as my “tropical” beverage of choice, but the groundwork for my love for it was laid in this amazing pink beverage from Ocean Spray.
