Food Lion's store-brand Mountain Dew is called "Mountain Lion," which I thought was pretty clever, considering.

*googles*
Whoa
It's called "Mr. Pig". Which suggests to me that it's a knockoff of Mr. Pibb, a now defunct* knockoff of the good Doctor. So, a knockoff twice removed?


*It's been replaced by Pibb Xtra.

Wikipedia wrote:First introduced as "Peppo" and eventually "Dr. Pibb", to compete against Dr Pepper,[1] the name was changed to "Mr. Pibb" after Dr Pepper sued The Coca-Cola Company for trademark infringement.[2]
So perhaps Piggly Wiggly wanted to avoid litigation. Or maybe Mr. Pibb was the bigger name in the southern markets served by PW.

I was going to say that was the most worthwhile thing I've ever seen done with a DX-7, but on closer inspection, it appears to be some generic keyboard.

It looks to be a Yamaha PF70 Digital Piano. Probably wasn't a bad Digital Piano when it was new, for a 76 key. I prefer Yamaha keyboards anyway.
