Free orange drinks at the Varsity

VARSITYWhat’ll ya  have?

The Varsity will give away free Varsity Orange drinks all day Tuesday at all seven locations to honor the 80th anniversary of the legendary drink.

Created in 1932, the Varsity Orange is still made fresh on-site daily from orange juice and pure cane sugar (no artificial sweeteners or corn syrup).

The listed ingredients should make it taste more like orange juice than the actual TANG taste.

Can anyone spell DIABETES? Given that many maladies, once considered the domain of the elderly, are now visiting a youthful culture who finds more time to sit on their collective six than “play ball”, all these “freebies” and “gimmies” are NOT as they appear. You folks would be wise to forget about the mezmerizing effects of the word “free”…ain’t nothin free…you’re gonna pay, in one way or another.

Mmmm. Frosted Orange. It’s a shame The Varsity has become overpriced nostalgia.

I am glad I didn’t see Obama at the Varsity. I have too many fond memories of that place.
I did see Lester Maddox there on the eve of the 1968 Governors election before he took office. Lester was by himself and he had come to get some hamburgers (steaks) for his small campaign staff. A few months later he took office as governor.

If I saw 0bamaJiveTalker at The Varsity, I would lose my appetite.

He and his grifter wife would probably try to impose a “sin tax” on my Varsity chili dog or friend peach pie a la mode and try to tell me how to run my own life.

I used to love eating at the Varsity until I gave up MEAT. I’m so HAPPY TO BE MEAT FREE! I went there 2 years ago with my family and the onions ring looked EXTRA greasy. I wish I saw President Obama, I just love him and his wife Michelle. They are doing BIG THINGS at the White House. YOU HAVE MY VOTE AGAIN! ~WINK~

I will pass on the chili dogs, they are not Kosher.
The cheeseburgers need seasoning.
The Varsity Orange is good.
Nothing is free in life, pay your fair share of taxes, reelect President Obama.

Does it include FO’s or just the orange drink? I can’t pass up a free FO.

Hi, Esnows. From what I understand, just the orange drink, but I’ll check for you.

Why does the word “hate” always appear in posts with ALL CAPS?

@ Chuck Aliison

Im quite sure Obama would not have wanted to see your fugly mug also.. Shucks man, you’re reminiscing on a 68″ Governors election, you need to focus on what brand of diapers you’ll be wearing next week. I hear Depends has less of a moose knuckle..

Come on. Can’t even talk about a free Varsity Orange drink without bring the President into the conversation and putting him down. Heads are going to explode all across Georgia when he’s re-elected.
