After 57 years, Coca-Cola will be closing the book on Tab cola, along with several other 'underperforming' drinks.
(The only one in the list below that I've ever heard of is Delaware Punch.)

I remember when Tab first came out. That nasty saccharin aftertaste is unforgettable.
Good riddance.

Other national brands getting the boot include ZICO coconut water, Odwalla, Coca-Cola Life, Diety Coke Feisty Cherry and Sprite Lymonade. Coke said it was also cutting some regional products, including Northern Neck Ginger Ale and Delaware Punch, as well as international offerings like Vegitabeta in Japan and Kuat in Brazil.

Very strange Odwalla and Zico are on that list. Here in Crapifornia, all the yuppie health freaks drink both of those drinks like an alcoholic loves his liquor. Strange that they'll be gone soon.

Damnit... I want Tab now, and only because I know I can't have it.

I haven't seen Tab for more than 20-years. Didn't even know it was still around.

I was just in a grocery store this past week and noticed Tab on the shelf. Had dust on the top of it. Not sure what the shelf life of such a product is but, you can have my share.

Stephanie: In a minute, I'm busy right now.
Dick: Wha, wha, what are you doing?
Stephanie: pause Drinking a Tab.

Tab is downright awful. I still remember the aftertaste.

Side note: Coke Zero starts tasting awful 6 months after bottling. If you get one that's off, take a look at the date code. It doesn't age well.

There is this Lady we we see at the store all the time. She is going to lose her **** . I have seen her put in a rain check for several cases of Tab.
She does not look well at all, perhaps all of that fake sweetener is catching up to her.
But I would not want to be working there the day they tell her there will be no more tab.
