Ocean water, what???
----------------------
head for the beach, you're sitting on a fortune up there!!!!!

actually it's coconut flavored water, I don't get it either, except that it has a light blue tint (from blue coconuts no doubt)

It's actually coconut syrup and Sprite. And it is sweeter than Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm but crazee tastee.
------------------------------
this is the descriptions from Sonic's website: "Cool, blue and tangy with a hint of coconut!"

I was thinking that it had pieces of coconut floating around in it, like peanuts in Jello

Ewww Ocean water makes one think of salty. There is nothing worse then getting a mouth full of sea water.
They should have neamed it "tropical delight" or something sappy like that.
---------------------
I guess ocean=blue -- but you're right, it's a terrible name!!

peanuts in jello? ick.
------------------------
when I was a freshman in college the cafeteria in the dorm used to have Jello with whole peanuts all the time, the fact that no one choked to death is a miracle

It could be septic water. A hint oc coconut? How about a slathering of jellyfish?
---------------------------
the jellyfish are comming, the jellyfish are coming!!!!!

sorry, I just watched a History Channel special about the worldwide explosion of jellyfish (Yeh, I also thought they meant the jellyfish were blowing up, but they are just precreating at a frantic pace.)

I sure could go for a kelpsicle right about now.
------------------------
I thought kelp was all you northwesterns ate anyway!!!!! -- kelp and salmon, the latter which you beat to death as they jump in the streets

When I lived in Charleston, I used to go to Sonic and marvel at how stupid this was. It's one thing to foist this on midwesterners, but when you live on the ocean - and it's warm and salty - don't try to sell a cool refreshing drink with this name.
