Zingiwell Java Turmeric Lemon

Zingiwell Java Turmeric Lemon

What a cool lemonade. I bet you could give this to some dumb kid and he wouldn't know what is different. Man, kids are so dumb. You could probably put anything in front of a kid and as long as it's not in between their zit covered face and phone with an inevitably broken screen and they would drink it.

This is lemonade with a nice, strong turmeric taste and a little kick. You can taste everything in here down to the final ingredient, your favorite and mine, ginger. Alright, maybe it's not your favorite, but it's good. It also goes down smooth regardless of all of the otherwise foreign ingredients. It might not be popular here in the States but unless it's pizza or bacon flavored, us idiots wouldn't know a good thing if it slapped them across their fat stomach.

Hey kid! Take your headphones off in the car with your parents. Let me in on a little secret; they don't like it.

Ito En Oolong Shot Oolong Tea

Ito En Oolong Shot Oolong Tea

I've drank a lot of tea. I drink it all day. I could tell the difference between a black and a green all day. I think I could probably tell the difference between rooibos tea, too. Oolong, though. I could easily get this confused with a green tea. It's bitter. Light. Maybe that's the difference. Oolong might be lighter than green tea. It's really good and I wish that it was a gallon larger. I bet this is small for a reason, like people aren't supposed to handle that much caffeine or something. It's good though. Size aside, this is wonderful. I wish I had time to ponder and sit and mull it over but there are thousands of lines of code to write. Maybe some other time, Ito En. You will not be punished for my hectic, busy life. I wish I could enjoy you. This sounds like an awful breakup. It's not you, it's me. Go. Be with someone who can appreciate you.

International Delight Iced Coffee Mocha

International Delight Iced Coffee Mocha

Mocha is as close to coffee as I can get. You can call me what you want but I'll say it myself; I'm a weakling. I'm a shell of a man. I can't handle it. Your eighty year old grandma is more of a man than me. Cool. Now that's out of the way, this is good. It's not only good but it's diet and good. Strange, right? It is, as advertised, sweet and creamy and pretty rich as well.

I think that it's getting pretty easy to eat and drink well. This is probably half the calories that a non-diet version would be and only tastes mildly more diet. We're getting there. Disguising diet stuff. That's the future. Not space. Not time travel. Things that are diet but don't taste diet. Screw you moon mining.

Fairlife Ultra Filtered Milk Chocolate

Fairlife Ultra Filtered Milk Chocolate

Unlike Jay, I eat meat. That being said, if I can eat an animal that was treated fairly before he was, let's face it, murdered, that's better. Morrissey, while wildly militant about it, is right in that respect. He's right about a lot. He's Morrissey. This milk is advertised as being produced humanly which who can't appreciate? Sure, there are probably some people out there talking about how they don't care how the animals are being treated as long as they have a hamburger on their plate at the end of a day.

Does this chocolate milk taste happier? Not really. I'm not saying that it tastes sadder. If anything, it tastes thicker. It's a creamy chocolate milk, moreso than anything you make at home and probably more thick than a Nesquik. Yes, there is sucralose in it and yes you can taste it but it doesn't come off as a super diet chocolate milk. It's better for you in terms of calories, protein and calcium than "regular chocolate milk." You wouldn't guess it because it's pretty rich and if you didn't know better, tastes like it is not at all better for you than "the other guys" chocolate milk.

Our buddy Marvo over The Impulsive Buy reviewed this drink, too which reminded me that I had it in my queue. Now, all thanks to him, I really want another glass of it. You've done it again, Marvo.

Hey Mama! Tea For Mommies Lemon Herbal Iced Tea

Hey Mama! Tea For Mommies Lemon Herbal Iced Tea

To be a woman is rough. If this is any indication of what motherhood is like, it sucks. I've got a kid and child rearing also is very difficult and, at times, sucks. If I knew that the action of carrying a baby tastes like a lemon V8, then I might propose adoption to my increasingly unfortunate "baby mama."

This is a lemon red tea. There is raspberry in it but the lemon is real lemony and overwhelming. If you made yourself a nice, cool glass of red tea and then took one of those little bottles of lemon juice and just went haywire and squirted an excessive amount in it, you would have this. I, with every sip, do not know what's happening in here. It's just so overwhelmingly lemon flavored that it distracts from any other flavor.

Maybe, as a man, I am missing the point that...I don't know, lemons are really good for pregnant women? As a man, who is not pregnant at this current point in time, this is not for me.

Lipton Sparkling Iced Tea Lemonade

Lipton Sparkling Iced Tea Lemonade

This is strange. There. I said it. It's lemonade and tea. The sparkles and the sugar are super distracting, though. It almost gives the entire drink a bitter taste. The tea...what tea. It is sweetened with real sugar and has black tea and lemonade. There are a couple preservatives but not many. Nothing to give it this wonky taste. Lemon juice. Actual lemon juice. Black tea as an ingredient. Legitimate. Something is going on in here. It's not good.

Traditional Medicinals Holiday Chamomile

Traditional Medicinals Holiday Chamomile

Oh chamomile. You're usually so boring. You are made of boring flowers and are used by old people to manage getting through the day. This, though. This is different. I can't place it but it's stronger and perhaps more floral than the typical, boring old chamomile. Also, I have to at least type this because I know you're all thinking it; Chamillionaire. There. I said it. You know what? Now that I mention him, maybe he'd be into this. Even hard rappers need to calm down and enjoy the simple, relaxing times. Sure, I'm working behind a computer as I pathetically do every day of my G.D. life but it can be stressful. You think that Chamillionaire has it easy being a rapper? You, right now, give me sixteen bars. Not so easy. See? Everyone needs time to look out the window and watch boats go by. No phone calls, just a nice flower-based tea. Maybe I'll give Chamillionaire a call. He'd probably like to hang out with me.

Vita Coco Pure Coconut Water Lemonade

Vita Coco Pure Coconut Water Lemonade

This really feels like one of those “well I don’t have enough of one beverage to fil la glass, so I might as well mix them together” type of situations. Normally these occasions turn out very poorly and you find yourself forcing yourself to drink a disgusting concoction because you’re simply too lazy to walk aback to the kitchen. In this instance it worked out pretty well. It tastes like someone just mixed half a glass of lemonade with half a glass of coconut water. Both flavors are equally there, kind of sitting on each other and not blending together. Adding lemons to coconut water seems like an obvious choice now that I have it in front of me, but I’m shocked that I have not drunk it before. I can assure you that I will again on some hot summer days.

Nuwi Quinoa Smoothie Blueberry

Nuwi Quinoa Smoothie Blueberry

A little grit does a body good. Grit lets you know that there are good things going on in there. Natural things. Gritty things. When you describe things as gritty, though, that's not fantastic. I wish there was a different term to use that wouldn't instantly be seen as something undesirable. This is a gritty drink and although it didn't touch the fancy of everyone who tried it, it wasn't that bad. It smelled terribly but it didn't taste too bad. The banana might have had a stronger taste than that of the blueberry and in doing so, it kind of had a "soft" taste to it. This just kind of tasted like a semi-gritty healthy blueberry drink.

Someone who reviewed movies, not drinks, gave this a two. Me, if it was possible to see a three and know that it was a "soft three" then that's what this would be. It earned a three no doubt but it is on the lower side of the threes and not the 3.8 side of the scale. Eeked by, if you will.

Mountain Dew Kickstart Energizing Pineapple Orange Mango

Mountain Dew Kickstart Energizing Pineapple Orange Mango

For a product that seemed to be a flop in the review world, Mountain Dew is still pushing hard with their Kick Start line. I guess it does help that they seem to have stopped pushing that idea that it was a morning beverage to replace your coffee. There is definitely a time in the day when it is too early to be drinking soda, so that being your main marketing scheme was just bound to fail. The thing is that when you take that aspect out of it (as they seem to have done), these sodas aren’t terrible tasting. I think it was just the idea of waking up and downing a can of soda that was turning everyone off.

With these new flavors, the cans mention nothing of morning or breakfast, just that it will give you a hydrating boost; a much better attempt in my book. They are still soda that contains juice (only 10% but it’s better than nothing). As an added bonus this new flavor also has coconut water in it. Overall it tastes like a new flavor of Mountain Dew, but a little smoother. It’s pretty much their flagship flavor with a little pineapple and mango thrown in, and then they water it down a tiny bit with coconut water. I must say I enjoy it a lot more than the original.

The company has also decided to take the route of going half and half with sweeteners. While a lot of companies are mixing cane sugar and stevia for a lower calorie count, Mountain Dew went the cheaper (grosser) way of mixing high fructose corn syrup and sucralose. The diet flavor is pretty much masked, but it still pops out a little bit, and that I could do without.
