I can remember walking with my Dad and we would talk and as we talked and got closer to the store I would get absolutely giddy about getting an ice cold 7UP® in a bottle with my dad to share.
I love soda and everything about it. I realize I have to drink it on moderation but I just love the fizz. I love the feeling when I come home and open a cold can of 7UP® and just relax and decompress from the day and truly try to leave work at work. I don’t know if I love it so much for the delicious lemon-lime taste or all the fond memories of those walks with my Dad.
Either way it’s my favorite beverage to sit down and shoot the breeze over or to watch a movie. There’s just something about the smell, the fizz, bubbles and taste that make me feel right at home.

So because of my affection of 7UP® I wanted to make a tasty treat with it. Lemon-lime bars. I knew that baking with the 7UP® in the recipe would make this a super moist and delicious recipe, that anyone could love, that likes lemon and lime of course.
I pulled out one of my favorite bar recipes and exchanged the lime juice for 7UP® and I set to making a special treat during our movie night!! This recipe is so simple to throw together and it came out of the oven beautifully. I could really taste the lemon lime flavor of the 7UP® and it was a great compliment to my favorite beverage of choice that evening.
