Multi Ethnic Soda
I found this watermelon soda in a corner store in Georgetown, Grand Cayman. Beyond the retro quality, I didn't notice the unique design at first. I just wondered what it might taste like. And it tastes like watermelon. Not too sweet, surprisingly tasty.
Imagine if this packaging went on sale here? Really, I suppose it's the equivalent of promotional photos that happen to include models from multiple ethnic backgrounds, but the illustrations seem more identifiably like a choice. The watermelon boy looks like he's enjoying himself. The watermelon girl just looks like she's eating it because her mum told her she had to. Or maybe she's politely chewing with her mouth closed.
