DG Jamaican Orange

DG Jamaican Orange

I'm pretty certain that the cartoon cat on this bottle may have been modeled after Mike. He's got the swimming trunks, the white shoes, the wrap around shades, it looks like he has a beard, and most importantly it has a look of complete apathy about what is happening around it. That cat is in a good place and it's not going to let outside factors ruin his time. It may take some work though because he appears to be drinking a bottle of this self same orange soda (which has a picture of him on it holding a bottle of the self same orange soda, so on and so forth). If I know this cat like I know Mike, then I can assure you this cat loves hot dogs (and writing over 100 songs about barbeques). I can only assume that he is about to eat half his body weight in hot dogs, and is planning on enjoying this soda to wash them down. Yes it is a scientific fact that orange soda is the perfect beverage to accompany hot dogs, read a book!

Mike cat is going to love those hot dogs. In fact he may go back for more to eat his entire body weight. He is going to be disappointed about his beverage selection though. Look, I've eaten a lot of hot dogs in my life, so it stands to reason that I have also drank a lot of orange soda. It's a fairly low quality flavor of pop. It doesn't give you much to work with, but you don't expect much and that is the beauty of it. DG has somehow managed to make generic orange pop taste off. It starts off just as you would expect it to, but then it fades into lemon-lime territory for some reason. I also feel like there is way more citric acid in each bottle than necessary. I hope Mike cat brought a backup because this isn't going to do what he needs to get done. Maybe he doubled up the DG and brought some of their tasty ginger beer.

DG Jamaican Pineapple

DG Jamaican Pineapple

I just booked a vacation to Hawaii for a friend's wedding. I'm planning on completely gorging myself on pineapples while I'm there. I mean to the point where my tongue is bleeding from the acidity. I decided that I would celebrate my purchase and start conditioning my body for all the pineapple intake. Unfortunately, there is no real pineapple in this drink, only artificial flavoring. Due to that it doesn't really taste like pineapple. It does taste just like pineapple Slice used to. I enjoy this a lot. Not all pop is supposed to taste like fruit, and I need to keep that in mind.

DG Jamaican Ginger Beer

DG Jamaican Ginger Beer

When I was looking at this bottle I read it as "Bottled by PC Jamaica LTD. Jamaica WI." I thought it was hysterical that they made it in Jamaica, Wisconsin. Then my friend looked at the bottled, and confirmed as per usual that I am an idiot, and it said "Jamaica, W.I." How did I miss the periods that signify West Indies. So yes, this was actually made in the real Jamaica, and it is exactly what I expect from ginger beer. An instant burst of flavor followed by an increasing burning sensation. I don't even know how to describe the "heat" from ginger. It's nothing like the spiciness of peppers or wasabi. It is it's own thing, and it's concentrated in your throat, not your mouth. It's wonderful.
