It happened back in '63, I was 5 and my Big sister was 13. We were enjoying our Root Beer Fizzies "straight"... no water. She licked the tablet and it foamed wonderfully, she told me to lick mine and swallow it... I did (remember I was 5) the tablet became lodged in my throat foaming away, scarring my sister and Mother to death. They hung me upside down and slapped my back like a drum. Everything turned out fine but to this day anytime someone mentions Fizzies I laugh til I cry. I still love 'em. ~ Ed from Georgia
