Honey Boo Boo Child, Go-Go Juice and Sketti
Sep 18, 2012 12:32 PM EDT | By Juan Fernandez
Alana Thompson, aka Honey Boo Boo (or Honey Boo Boo Child), is regularly seen on her hit show on TLC unabashed with her family. Ever curious about what "go-go juice" and "sketti" is? Alana is often seen drinking "go-go juice," which her mom gives her at pageants and shows.
"My special juice is going to help me win," says Honey Boo Boo. "My Go-Go Juice is kicking in right now."
Well, "go-go juice" is a blend of Mountain Dew and Red Bull. It contains as much caffeine as two cups of coffee.

The seven year-old pageant contestant landed her own show after her breakout in "Toddlers & Tiaras". In her own spinoff show, Alana knew that her parents can't afford a lot, so she set up her own lemonade stand. A couple bottles of lemon juice and five pounds of sugar later, Honey Boo Boo sold 50 cent cups of lemonade and racked in $25 dollars! Not bad at all!
In last week's episode, her family of six cooked up "sketti", basically ketchup/butter spaghetti.
"I try to cook, like, at least every day of the week," says June, aka Mama. The episode ends with Honey Boo Boo saying, "I don't think much of table manners," then the family laughs.
Here's a recipe for "Sketti" that you can try yourself:
1 28 oz can of San Marzano tomatoes
5 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1 halved yellow onion
cooked pasta, salt to taste
Microwave the butter, tomatoes, and diced onion together. Add cooked pasta and salt to taste.
