Summer’s Status Symbol-KEMOSABE LITE Iced Diet Coffee

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 8/11/2016

“We have to go over and say hello,” my best friend Gary said to me as two of our high school classmates, Melissa and Kristen, entered the pool area of Hillsdale Country Club, each holding styroform containers.

“What do you think is in the containers, Gary?” I replied.

“Whatever it is it has to be this summer’s status symbol or they would never have shown up here drinking them,” Gary added, referring to the fact that we were at the most exclusive country club in north Dallas, the “summer camp” for very rich kids.

“Excuse me. Can you watch our chairs for ten minutes?” I asked the woman sun tanning herself in the chair next to us as Gary and I got up and looked towards Melissa and Kristen. No sooner had Gary and I gotten within ten feet of Melissa and Kristen than I was able to read the logo on the side of the container-Kemosabe Diet Coffee.

For the next several minutes Gary and I engaged in a conversation with Melissa and Kristen about our summer vacations. “May I ask what your drinking? I asked Melissa as she just finished taking a sip from her container.

“It’s Kemosabe Lite iced diet coffee. My cousin from New York City spend a week with us in July and he introduced me to it. It’s absolutely delicious.”

“It sure smells delicious,” I stated, smiling at Melissa.

“We’re both drinking Kemosabe Lite Crème Butterscotch iced diet coffees,” Melissa replied. And you want to know the best part about it, guys? It’s diet coffee. It has less than one gram of sugar per serving, which allows Kristen and I to retain our figures,” she added, as she slid her hand down the front of her flat stomach. “See you in school next week, Kristen stated as she and Melissa began to walk away.

No sooner had Melissa and Kristen gotten out of hearing range then I turned to Gary and say, “We got to get some of that Kemosabe Lite diet coffee so we can be seen with it on the first day of school.”
