Beep

Does anyone remember "BEEP drink"?

I drank it at track meets and birthday parties when I was in grade school. I think it may be a Saskatchwan thing... but does anyone else remember it?? It came in a white "milk" type carton with orange writing...I think the packaging boasted that it was 10% real juice. *laugh*

Anyone?
I can't find any info about it on the interweb.

ADDED LATER:
In my quest to find info on BEEP I found this page. Brilliant!

as mentioned on the American's Guide to Canada, BEEP is available in the maritimes, too. i recall it as one of those things that was too trashy for my parents to buy, but i always coveted at friends' houses.

They totally are. Barely anyone not from there has ever had it or even heard of it.

Wasn't it called "Peep" and there was a little birdie on the cover? I loved that stuff, but we only got to drink it in the summers at the cottage, along with cinnamon buns and other unhealthy stuff.

I love BEEP! I think they still sell it in Cape Breton. Didn't have a bird hatching from an egg on the carton? Having BEEP was way better than McDonalds orange drink.

What a great name for a product...BEEP...it is just fun to say.

LOL Beep was a great product! No nutritional value whatsoever and a vibrant unnatural orange colour, it must have been distributed in Saskatchewan by Co-Op dairies because our milkman (remember those guys?) used to deliver it along with our milk 3 times a week. When I was about 10, my brother would have been 4, he was in bed and I brought him a drink of beep to which I had added some tabasco sauce...he drank it and started yipping and hollering and ran downstairs to tell on me...unfortunately our parents had guests over and man was I in trouble...I should mention that I wasn't in the habit of doing this kind of thing, we sure laugh about it now and my brother's wife keeps threatening to do something similar to me when I least expect it...

I had beep as a kid, the milk truck brought it daily. I'm looking to see if it is still available. Definitely not a Saskatchewan thing - Im from Ontario!!!

My girlfriend is from Weehawken, New Jersey. I was mentioning my childhood orange drink, and she said "Oh, you mean BEEP". She is the only American who has ever mentioned it.

I grew up in Richmond, VA (DEFINITELY not Canada!) and we had Beep, although my family never got it. It was delivered with the milk. Came in a carton. And yes, there was a picture of a chick on the carton. Some of my friends even had Beep cups -- plastic yellow cups with the red Beep chick. I was so jealous....

I live in North Dakota and my younger brother was under weight and my mother fed him Beep believing that it was loaded with vitamins that could bulk him up.

I grew up in Detroit, and we had Beep, which was delivered by the Wilson's Dairy milkman.

Waco Texas! Beep delivered by the milkman, Mr. Cobb. He would knock once and then just open the door, walk right in while we were at the breakfast table, go over to the fridge and put our milk and Beep in. I had the little yellow Beep cups, "Beep" on one side, a chirping bird on the other.
