Tim Horton's Iced Coffee Vanilla

Tim Horton's Iced Coffee Vanilla

This tastes like a candle and also tastes like it sucks. No stars. Wait...I can't do no stars? This website sucks almost as much as this drink. I said, "Could I have an iced coffee with vanilla, please?" and I think they misheard "vanilla" and thought I said candle wax. Three sips. There goes $2.16. Cripes. Grozz. Ugh. These are the sounds that I am audibly saying at work aloud as people try to work. "Try to work" is code for "fantasy football" so it sounds like everyone has a hearing impediment today.

Ginger People Bottoms Up Ginger Beer

Ginger People Bottoms Up Ginger Beer

My brother finds drinks sometimes and thinks he's going to be mean and buy me stuff he thinks might be gross. This isn't the gross one but is part of the group that he bought me. This one was actually really nice. It was sweet and really spicy, the way that ginger beer should be. It most certainly still had its feet in ginger ale territory but was dabbling in the ginger beer world. The spice was nice and it burns in all the right places. The fact that it was unfiltered means that it was laden with stuff at the bottom and you know how the Thirsty Dudes love stuff in their drinks. A+. Would drink again.

Stok Cold Brew Iced Coffee Black

Stok Cold Brew Iced Coffee Black

Oh how I wish I had one of these now. No, not a 48 ounce bottle as that would be suicidal but the smaller, equally available 10 ounce bottle. Long nights, friends. Long nights. I know it would make me sick and dizzy but anything over this underslept feeling, which is garbage. I took a shot or two of this over the weekend, you know, just to get by, and it was nice. It was smooth, and although advertised as "not too sweet" it was definitely sweetened and possibly more than many people would like.

I don't have a preference as far as coffee goes, as you may well know, but sweet and usually with some sort of syrup is preferable. This met the criteria just fine. Lucky for me, there is a 48 ounce bottle with two shots missing at home waiting, for a girl like me (to come into my life).

Ripple Chocolate

Ripple Chocolate

"Nutritious Plant-Based Milk" isn't really milk at all, is it? I mean, you could argue that almond milk or soy milk isn't milk but I guess it's all in your definition of what "milk" is, now, isn't it? One thing I can say is that whether you call this milk or a plant-based milk, I can tell you that it is one thing, it's not that great.

It most certainly tastes like something is "up." It doesn't have the smoothness of milk. I don't want to say gritty but there is definitely some stuff up in there. I get that it's a nice alternative to dairy and for vegans, if you had the strength, you might do a backflip to hear that you've got another alternative to murderous milk.

This tastes like chocolate but as far as chocolate milk goes, it's definitely lacking in both sugar and chocolate. I'm not saying that as an insult but you might want to think of this as not only dairyless milk, but also think of it as "chocolate milk light" but put "light" in double quotes because this 12 ounce bottle still manages to cram 220 calories in her. It's a difficult battle, milk, but I suppose we can't let them have all the fun in Mootown.

Feel Natural Energy Mango Passionfruit

Feel Natural Energy Mango Passionfruit

This is centimeters from being horrible. It walks the tightrope of having a diet death taste, but somehow maintains its balance and the crowd of taste buds cheers on the dismount. It is sweetened by both stevia and cane sugar, which reels in the horrible diet flavor. It really does take you right to the limit of what you can handle before it becomes just another diet drink. Instead it has a decent fruit flavor and keeps it at 15 calories. It’s not ideal flavorwise, but it is better than most beverages that contain a zero calorie sweetener.

It’s been a long day and it has potential to be a long night as well. I needed a little boost to push me through, but I didn’t want your everyday energy drink that would make me feel all crazy and not be able to sleep. This seems to be doing a good job of working both sides. I’m more alert, but I don’t feel like the only sleep that I’m going to get will be after the sun rises. Here’s to hoping it continues to keep the yawns away.

Americana Huckleberry

Americana Huckleberry

By naming their company Americana are they insinuation that that their products are artifacts of American history? Are these sodas a glimpse into our nation’s past? If so, we’ve had one hell of a history of soda, because this is ridiculously delicious. Fruit sodas are a tough sell for me. They rarely turn out correctly and mostly taste like sugar water that is flavored nothing like fruit at all. This tastes distinctively like berries and I’m not talking about those of the straw-, rasp- or even blue- varieties. This is pure huckleberry, or so I’ll assume as I don’t think I’ve ever had the fruit in its natural form. It doesn’t taste artificial at all, but rather like someone carbonated juice and added a bit of cane sugar. Sure it’s fairly sweet, but some sodas call for that. If only America still tasted like this instead of like racism and hate I wouldn’t feel so disgusting all the time. Okay I would still feel gross from consuming too much, but I wouldn’t feel as bad.

Bickford's Traditional Soda Sarsaparilla

Bickford's Traditional Soda Sarsaparilla

I knew I was in for a wild ride when I didn’t even have this cap completely off and I was blasted in the face by the familiar sent of anise/licorice. How is it that I hate black licorice/black jelly beans more than I have hated almost anything in this world, yet I kind of dig that flavor when it’s in beverage form? Sure this tastes a bit like carbonated Nyquil, but it’s still somehow pretty great.

There really isn’t anything about this that would make me think sarsaparilla if I blind taste tested it. I would just assume it was supposed to be an anise soda, because that’s all I’m getting. Perhaps sarsaparilla is something different in Australia, where this drink comes from.

This bottle is only 9.3oz, but I think it would be perfect at half that size. I really enjoy it, but it gets to be a bit too much for me at about the half way point. I really hope I stumble across this companies other flavors though, because I anticipate great things from them.

Twigs Caramel Apple

Twigs Caramel Apple

Do you want to know what’s gross? Caramel sodas, that’s what and this one is no different. Caramel is burnt sugar, and is only really good in small amounts where it accents other flavors. It has no place being a main flavor of any beverage. This tastes like someone went to their local fair, bought a couple of candy apples that are made with caramel instead of the hard red stuff, and then used some sort of liquefying ray to make it into a soda. That description doesn’t actually sound all that bad, but in practice it’s just not good. I couldn’t get past more than two sips. It really tastes exactly like I described. Who knows, maybe that’s your thing? If it is feel free to drink the rest of this bottle because I’m about to introduce it to my sink’s drain.

Paradise Citron Fuzion Water Beverage Lemon

Paradise Citron Fuzion Water Beverage Lemon

This, this was a pleasant surprise. I’ve been sitting on it awhile and I thought it was a boring old lemon soda. You know, the kind that only vaguely tastes like lemon and mainly tastes like sugar. At best I was hoping it would taste like a carbonated lemonade, since it’s 4% real lemon juice. It was none of those things. Instead what I got was a boring seltzer water with lemon juice in it, which as it turns out isn’t all that boring and rather tasty.

I find lemon water unnecessary. I’m the jerk that requests no lemon in my water when I go out to eat. I prefer plain old water. I love water; I don’t need to spice it up with a fruit that has generally been ruined by household cleaners. Something about this is quite nice though. It thankfully doesn’t taste like something I used to polish my furniture. It tastes like go ordered a plain seltzer and then instead of squeezing a single slice of lemon that was cut four hours ago into it, you grabbed one of those squeeze bottles that looks like the fruit and pressed it for longer than you are recommended to. Sometimes I look back on what I’ve been drinking lately and I don’t recognize that man reflected in my glass anymore.

Chameleon Cold-Brew Mexican Coffee

Chameleon Cold-Brew Mexican Coffee

Things I’ve recently learned about myself include the fact that if you make a coffee drink “Mexican” I will probably love it. Generally that means adding cinnamon and chilies to it. I also think of it as having to do with chocolate since my first forays into it were with Mexican hot chocolate. This does not have chocolate. Actually it doesn’t have chilies either. That doesn’t stop it from being amazing though. What it does contain is high quality cold brewed coffee, cane sugar, vanilla, almond and cinnamon. The results are flat out fantastic. It’s one of the best coffee beverages I have ever tasted. Even with all of the added ingredients the coffee is still the main flavor, and it’s smooth and delicious. The other things are just icing on an already delicious cake. There is something about this that makes me think of a drink from when I was younger, but I can’t put my finger on what that drink is. I know it’s the cinnamon that’s pointing me in that direction though. While you could drink this at any point in the day, it would be perfect as a dessert beverage.
