REJOICE, for this was the special seltzer scene at the Aisle 8 endcap at the White River Junction Co-op Food Store this afternoon:
For the uninitiated, these seltzers are ~kind of a big deal~.
Consider this headline from the Boston Globe: “People are stocking up on the new Polar Seltzer flavors like the apocalypse is coming.” The same report takes note of a Reddit thread where seltzer super-fans in the Boston area are helping each other hunt down the hard-to-find flavors, which started hitting grocery shelves in the past couple weeks. And across town, Boston Magazine pretty much bragged about sippin’ on a batch of Dragon Whispers, Yeti Mischief, Mermaid Songs and Unicorn Kisses.
So, as a proud member of an online seltzer enthusiast group (SHOUTOUT TO MY FIZZ FAM), I was pretty pumped to find all four flavors right here in little WRJ yesterday afternoon. This was the scene in my car on Sunday, moments after my partner and I stocked up on four six-packs, one of each flavor:
Note that the above is not quite a fizzeo, which is a seltzer review video, but it is basically just Polar porn. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Also, the Co-op Food Stores Facebook page got all cute and stuff with a little dragon post. Aw!
And last but not least, here’s me at work today, because of course I made a Boomerang of limited edition seltzer, and yes it did take me two tries to get the timing right, but obviously I drank both of them, doy.
