Keeping Tabs On The Early 90's

Tab Clear pin
Coca-Cola (1993)
I had some eBay Bucks that were about to expire, so I used them to do what any sensible person living through an apocalypse would do.  I bought a promotional pin that was used to advertise a soda that was discontinued 27 years ago.

Tab Clear soda will always have a special place in my heart.  My dad had a minor scam operation going in 1993 which resulted in a free year's supply of his favorite diet cola.  I would wager that our household drank more Tab Clear than anyone else in the country.

It only lasted for a year so there's not a lot of Tab Clear merchandise floating around out there, but I try to keep my eye out for things like this pin.  One of these days, I'm hoping to find the flyer that Dad used to take advantage of the promo that brought us all of that free soda.
