Ouch, that hurts. For me as a European it is simply incomprehensible how some Americans are so in denial about the direct connection of fire arm murders and the gun laws in the US. It's just beyond me, sorry. I am simply in awe at the levels of denial human beings are capable off, it is sad. No need to reply to this, I don't wanna start a thread.

I recall visiting the Shasta website and casting a vote for Tiki Punch, swept up in the inalienable truth "anything tiki must be good" and feeling a bit remorseful as I had never tasted the stuff.



Did all of you vote for this stuff just b/c it says "tiki" on it? I still think Hawaiin Punch is much better than this stuff. I'll admit, when I first saw it at my local Ralph's, I was in awe. I bought a couple bottles but then the novelty quickly wore off. The name and the packaging are pretty cool, but flavor-wise this drink is seriously lacking. I wonder how people outside of Tiki Central actually buy and drink the stuff?

Oh well, everyone already knows what I think and I'm not going to change anyone's mind. And now I'm sure Baxdog is going to tell me to "get a grip or a life!"

Oh, and Sven, I agree with you. You know, there was a time when we would actually get together and AMEND our constitution. Well, maybe we could ban bullets instead, or sell them for $5000 each! This is getting way too off topic, please don't flame me.

I'll tell you what denial is. It's spending an afternoon in Eugene, Oregon watching a college football team you believe is some kind of power (the Ducks) get exposed for the umpteenth time this season as a run of the mill patsy... and to the reviled Huskies! I'd rather down a two liter bottle of Tiki Punch than go through that again. In steady pouring rain by the way.
But it doesn't matter, really. Not here.
This is where we come to share our fondest Polynesian dreams and ideals. That cooler over there, perfectly stocked, leaning against that palm tree swaying in the trade winds does not conceal a 357. magnum. There are no handguns needed or wanted here. I come here to share these innocent ideals with this great tiki family. And in doing so I try to obey the rule of keeping political ideology out of this arena. This doesn't mean I will not react to commentary I find to be an unnecessary affront to my political outlook. Trader Woody's remark, I understand, was made innocently enough and in the context of making a point about "ballot stuffing" tactics. But substitute the word Gays or the words The Teachers Unions for NRA in his post and think about what the reaction would have been. The point is politics shouldn't come up and when it does, it certainly should not be amplified by more opinion no matter how befuddled one is by the opposite view. Don't mind me. More mai tais and less Duck football will have me settled down soon.

Well, if Hawaiian Punch starts a 'vote for Hawaiian Punch ve. Barceona Brew or Ssaskatchewan Sasparilla' I'll vote for them too.

We voted simply because we had the right to.

If only people got so excited about federal elections!

Back to the drink...

I'm starting to not like tiki punch. I bought a bunch of cans at the 99 cents store. It's not so bad and would probably taste great with rum or vodka-if you're really fruity, Malibu rum. Too bad I'm a burbon chick.
Anyway-my 7 year old son asked me if I wanted a tiki punch. I said yes and he socked me in the arm while going "UGA BUGA" Funny guy-it started a punching fest which left us rubbing our upper arms and laughing like crazy. He's had too much flu medicine today as he stayed home sick. Now we say tiki P-word. Bring on the zazz!

No more politics- add some rum to your tiki punch. It's good- I'll call it a Rum T.P. (Or I'll get punched.) ZAZZZ!

Dearest Rick,
My words were not directed totally at you, it was the thought of Shasta going with Tiki Punch only because TIKI was getting popular. Well it was my understanding Shasta had several flavors to vote for and it was goobers like me that "VOTED" a million times and not a Shasta conspiracy to ruin TIKI culture.
Personally I can't get enough TIKI, old or new so the more we push it the more shit I get to look at. And if you have to keep TIKI traditional and to its roots, then good luck finding any hotels or bars or cool places to hang at in about 5 years. Hell the 70's and 80's almost wiped it off the face of the earth. And now look, Trader Vics and other places are starting to make a come back, and it's all because "I voted for Tiki Punch"
(and I still have not tasted it)and Damn proud to stand up and say so!

MMMMMM---George W. TIKI------
Dem.? or Rep.?
Oh hell it don't matter if he is the frickin green party I'm voting the TIKI guy in cuz he looks better.

Picked up a bottle of this stuff at Ralph's last summer and I hate to say it but...it's pretty bad. Waaay too dang sweet for my palate, I'll take Hawaiian Punch over this any day of the week.

Ok, so I'm a newbie, been wanting to come to this site for months, and finally got around to it. And God I'm in Heaven.
Personally, I love the Tiki Punch. Always buy a 3 liter bottle at Ralphs whenever I can. Haven't mixed it with anything yet, not much of a drinker, but I think I'll throw back a few swiggs of a mix when the time comes. I didn't vote cuz I was without a computer for a long while, but when I saw it up on the shelves, had to have it....and as long as they keep stocking the shelves with it...i'll keep buying it.

Welcome to Tiki Central, TiKiMaN77! Do you have a 99 Cent Only or Dollar Tree near you? you can usually find Tiki Punch 3 liters there for a buck & sometimes 6 packs 2 for a buck. I usually buy them just to keep them in my 'fridge with the little Tiki man facing out.

Actually, I've got roughly 3-4 .99 cent stores near me. closest one's down on San Fernando Blvd. here in Burbank. Haven't been there in quite a while, but when I pass by in the car I see the bottles there in the window. Still have yet to try the other flavors though. Maybe this weekend after I cash my check from work.
