Talk of the Towne


OK, raise your hand if you've ever been to Towne Club. If my family went there because we were bargain-hunters or poor (see ad, below), I sure never knew it. I just loved being in a store full of pop and walking around with a wooden crate picking out which ones I wanted to try next. The pineapple was the best -- and was the likely culprit behind all those fillings. Get ready for the accent ...

I used to love Towne Club! Always more than Faygo. Must be a Michigan thing! =)

We used to go to Towne Club all the time when I was a kid in metro Detroit. We had the bottles for years afterwards too.

Does the fact I didn't hear an accent say anything about where I grew up?

Cola with the red cap was fake Coke; Kola with the blue cap was fake Pepsi!

Oh yes. 12 Mile and Woodward. The days of my youth... Blew me away when, a week ago, I say Aggie Usedley, still calling the numbers for the Michigan Lottery.
