Zaxby’s and a trip down memory lane

leave a comment »

What’s a Zaxby’s you might ask?  Chances are if you are in the Southeast you probably know what it is.  For the rest of the United Sates who do not know, it is a chain of over 500 fast casual restaurants serving chicken with various dipping sauces.  See the link’s below to acquaint yourself.

 Today’s blog is not really about Zaxby’s but the experience you feel when you are transported back in time to your youth when experiencing a taste, smell or auditory recollection.  My wife and I have become fans of Zaxby’s for a reason besides their tasty food.  That reason is the Fanta cherry soda pop they serve in their soda fountains at their restaurants.  (At least at the one we frequent.)  Without the Fanta cherry we would still enjoy Zaxby’s on a regular basis but the Fanta cherry has us hooked to the point that we try to go once a week if we can make it. 

My father owned gasoline service stations when I was growing up and he had a pop machine that carried Fanta products and I loved it then and I love it now.  I haven’t had a Fanta cherry soda pop in a very long time and now I can get one whenever I want.  For all I know, Fanta cherry is readily available at grocery stores but I never really noticed.  There is also something really special about getting soda pop from a fountain.  The bottle or can versions are never quite as good.

Isn’t it funny how things that we recall from our past trigger so many vivid memories?  I wrote a blog on a similar topic last May, see the link below for another trip down memory lane.

Have a great week, I think I am going to try and get a Luigi’s Pizza and wash it down with a Fanta cherry soda pop.

Fanta, make mine cherry
