Kern's Nectar Peach

Kern's Nectar Peach

Whenever I think of peach nectar a very specific idea is floating around my skull. I think of a very thick, sweetly perfect juice that tastes like I have shrunk down a million peaches so that I could fit them all in my mouth at once. That is what Looza peach nectar tastes like, and it’s what I think that all drinks that bear this name should as well. Unfortunately Kerns does not share my belief. First off this is sweetened with high fructose corn syrup, which can be okay in sodas but is a big no-no when it comes to juice. The result is that instead of tasting like glorious fruit, it’s a bit on the candied side. The consistency of this is fairly thick, but it’s the wrong kind of thickness that you get from a syrup and not from blending the fruit for a shorter time. At least they used real peach puree in this. It’s not horrible by any means. I would happily drink a can of this, but when you’re beverage is being compared to the big guns you have to reach for the stars. Kerns apparently though that reaching for the lowest branches would be enough.

Kern's Nectar Guava

Kern's Nectar Guava

You know how when bees make honey it can taste a little like the flowers they got the pollen from? Well I’d like to get some honey from bees that were feasting on guava blooms. I got the idea from the hummingbird on this can. Yeah that’s right, I went from hummingbird to bees in less than a second. My brain works in mysterious ways. But yeah, guava honey would probably rate right up there with rainbows, puppies and your kiss as the best things in life (the producer made them cut it down to just your kiss).

Unfortunately this Kern’s guava nectar is not on that list. It’s good, but the HFCS makes it a bit too sweet and a bit too thick, in an unnatural way. It just masks the glorious taste of the guava a bit too much. Oh well I’ll take what I can get when it comes to this fruit. Now someone send me that honey.
