Onli Natural Grapefruit (Pomelo & Peach)

Onli Natural Grapefruit (Pomelo & Peach)

There beverages were a surprise treat. When I picked them up I saw that the flavors were Grapefruit, Hibiscus and Raspberry. It wasn’t until I got home that I realized that under the big flavor, others were listed. In this one the surprise visitors were pomelo and peach. Sure pomelos are similar to grapefruit, but why not mix them together to spice things up a bit? The result is a soda that is very much citrus based. I have an aversion to peach in drinks because it almost always tastes fake and like some sort of peach chemical and not fruit juice. In here it really tastes like neither and just makes the soda taste a bit crazy, but in a good way. The initial taste that greets you is most definitely grapefruit, but then the other two kick in and it is like some mad scientist performed experiments during a lightning storm and created a new fruit (no, not the coveted guavacado that I dream of so often). This is unlike any flavor I have tasted before. It’s quite delicious, but for some reason I cannot make it through an entire bottle in one sitting. I suppose that means I just get to enjoy it again a little bit later.

Onli Hibiscus Pomegranate Aronia

Onli Hibiscus Pomegranate Aronia

Steve, I know you’ve been bummed because you are way underwater on your bills and you weren’t able to get away on your yearly vacation. I bet buying that $30,000 car that sucks immense amounts of gas doesn’t seem like the wisest idea in hindsight, does it? Also, I hate to bring it up, but you bought a $200,000 house. Not only did you’re payments go up $600/ month from what you were paying for rent, but at the end of your 30 year mortgage you will have paid over $450,000, but you know in three decades you’ll own the house free and clear, just in time to die. All of that makes perfect sense for someone who is a cashier at Walgreens though, right? Okay, I’ll ease up on you because I know you’ve been down lately. I mean you may be a dummy with no spending responsibility, but everyone needs to get out of town from time to time and feel some sunshine on their face.

Here I got you this; it’s like a vacation in a bottle. It’s an all-natural soda that isn’t like the junk you normally drink. It’s light, fruity and slightly floral. I know you have a dumb hatred on pomegranate because you think they are too difficult to eat, but this captures the flavor wonderfully without being overly bitter. No, it doesn’t taste like an old lady’s floral perfume. Hibiscus, is a magical flower that when mixed with a slight bit of cinnamon is one of the best flavors a beverage can have. I wasn’t sure what aronia was, but it’s apparently a super fruit that is similar to acai. I’m guessing it’s what that extra flavor in here is. It blends in perfectly in this soda whatever it is.

Seriously though, crank your heat, turn on all the lights, blast some relaxing music, close your eyes and sip this soda and you’ll feel like you were able to get away and are on some tropical island somewhere. It may not be the real thing, but it will give you a little escape from the life of debt you’ve gotten yourself into. Good luck digging yourself out of that hole.
