Foco Mango and Passion Fruit Juice Drink

Foco Mango and Passion Fruit Juice Drink
Get yourself a big ole' bucket of water. Now dump a big ole' bag of sugar in it. Squeeze some of those little ole' passion fruits and those regular ole' mangoes into that there bucket and what you get will probably taste a little bit like this. This only has 30% juice in it, but what amount of the remaining 70% is sugar? It's ridiculously sweet to an extent that it takes away from the flavor of two of my favorite fruits. Both are present but the amount of sugar makes them taste candied. Too bad.

Foco Green Tea Lemon Flavor

Foco Green Tea Lemon Flavor
Jay doesn't like lemon drinks. I don't 100% know why but I think it has something to do with how it has the potential to taste a little like Pledge or Pine Sol. I don't get that when I drink lemon stuff and I also don't hate lemon so Jay usually gives them to me. I think he gave me this one and for once his complaint is valid.

This drink is one of the worst lemon green teas I've ever had. It's got a green tea taste that's trying to shine through too much sugar and bad lemon. Reading the ingredients, you don't have to be detective Goren to know that "artificial lemon flavor" is going to blow. There is something else that's pretty bad in there but I can't pinpoint it specifically other than "it tastes like fake everything" like who ever made this drink made a natural version of the drink and mixed in the cheap, regular version of the drink. You can taste what should have been but it's been crushed by the other stuff leaving you with a confused, unsatisfied palate.

Foco Dragon Fruit Juice Drink

Foco Dragon Fruit Juice Drink
Justice has been served. I feed people aloe drinks all of the time and never tell them there are chunks in it. It's fun to watch the concern in their faces. To be fair the bottles are always clear, so if they took a second to look at what they were about to drink they would see the chunks of aloe. This can in a can. A solid, opaque, aluminum can. There were also no indications of the can that it had chunks in it. The concern I loved watching on the faces of other quickly sprung onto mine after the first sip. I even went so far to pour it into a glass, so I could make sure they were supposed to be there. They were. The weirdest part of the chunks is that they are mushy. It is just chunks of the fruit, not aloe if I misled you. Sitting in the juice must have started to break them down. It's a strange sensation. It's nothing like aloe or nada de coco. There are also tiny seeds in it.

Dragon Fruit is sweet and tropical, thus so is this drink. It's really good. This may be the only time I've ever thought that chunks in a drink have taken away from the quality of it. Believe me there were tons of chunk to distract me from the sweet flavor of the juice.

Foco Aloe Vera Drink Mixed Berry Flavor

Foco Aloe Vera Drink Mixed Berry Flavor
Foco...come on. This is gross. It's so thick and syrupy. Dude, it's gross. It tastes diet but it most certainly isn't. It's somehow clear, regardless of how many colorful berries are on the can. It tastes like someone made aloe in cans that had a ton of soap residue on them. This might be the worst aloe I've ever had. I don't know what else to say. Thumbs down, Foco. There is no reason why a "regular" drink should get a one out of five review. I guess in those regards, you won. Congratulations?

Foco Mangosteen Juice Drink

Foco Mangosteen Juice Drink
This is my first mangosteen juice. I've had drinks that were flavored with it, but never an actual juice. I had expected it to be extremely harsh, like other "superfruit" juices I've drank in the past. It turns out it's pretty darn smooth. To me it tastes like a plum, if plums were a citrus fruit.
I didn't know it until today, but mangosteen is the "Queen of Fruit." Companies also claim it can cure cancer, dysentery, and bacterial infections. If any of that is actually true this certainly is a magical fruit with super powers. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for other mangosteen beverages.

Foco Mango Juice

Foco Mango Juice
I'm of the opinion that sugar does not need to be added to juices. Fruit is naturally sweet and delicious. When companies add a sweetener I assume it's because of one of two things: A. They work for the Dental Association of America, so they want it candy sweet in order to cause tooth rot. This will ensure that dentists everywhere are never out of work. I bet they even have a secret handshake, and those are the coolest. I think we need to make one up for Thirsty Dudes. - or - B. They pick their fruit before it's totally ripe in order to have a quicker turnover, thus creating greater profits. I think my D.A.A. scenario is more probably. Mainly because of the sweet handshake it involves. I don't want to even contemplate that not existing.
Foco does add sugar to their juices. Fortunately they are smart enough to have more juice than sugar. You would not believe how many drinks have the ingredients in the following order: water, sugar, and fruit juice. It's really obscene. Foco, you may have not given us the best possible juice you could, but you did make it a lot better than it could have been. I'm okay with drinking a lightly sweetened mango juice. Especially when they cost fifty cents per can.

Foco Pomegranate Juice Drink

Foco Pomegranate Juice Drink
This is simple, but a little too simple. I love nothing more than putting latex gloves on and just manhandling a pomegranate. Why latex gloves? Have you ever touched a pomegranate? Your hands look like you've been eating rust with your hands for years and it doesn't come off for days. So, latex gloves give you the best hands on approach. Just rip out the hundreds of seeds out, put them in some sort of receptacle, and prepare for a delicious treat in 20 to 30 minutes.

This drink takes all the fun and most of the bitterness out of pomegranate process and cans it. It's fun for some, delicious for most, and not enough for some. I would like a more mature, bitter, natural taste if I were me, which I am on all occasions. Also, I might have liked a little pulp in here, but I love a pulpy drink. It's sweet, but not too sweet and actually pretty easy to drink. Only thing is that without the bitterness, this tastes like some sort of common grape/pomegranate conglomerate. I would recommend this, but with the previous statement.

Foco Aloe Vera Drink with Honey

Foco Aloe Vera Drink with Honey
This is my least favorite aloe vera drink. Can you have a least favorite? Wouldn't your least favorite just be bad? Couldn't you just say you didn't like it or just not describe it as a favorite? Allow me to revise...

This was the worst aloe vera drink I've ever had. It's harsh, I know, and Foco has done me right with some of their nectars and stuff but this is just plain not great. It's got a strange odor to it. Someone I worked with described it as "...like Play Doh®" and because I can't think of a better description, I have no choice but to agree. The honey taste is very good, though. Not enough to save it, but a good, natural tasting honey. It reminds me of these honey hard candies I used to get from The Nature Company that had real honey on the inside. Those candies were the only things I ever bought in that store. Did you know that when The Nature Company did inventory, they had people count all of the tumbled rocks in a giant barrel? My mom had to count small rocks for a night and she probably still has nightmares.

Get that candy. Don't get this drink.

Foco Passion Fruit Drink

Foco Passion Fruit Drink
As I sit here and wait for the security people, which they should of been here 16 minutes ago I'm drinking by my lonesome a glass of passion fruit drink. The ingredients are sugar, water, and passion fruit juice? All the same this is pretty good. It's pretty sweet but a good natural fruit sweet. It's right on the line of a juice and smoothie because it's not as thick as a smoothie but it's also thicker than juice.

Finally the dude's here. Safety.

I got this drink at a local, low price food store but you could probably get it at nearly every Hispanic market. Also, for around a dollar, you can't go wrong.

Foco Thai Tea Drink

Foco Thai Tea Drink
Another fantastic Thai tea. I love it. This jam clocks in at nearly 200 calories per can, so share with a friend unless you're trying to bulk up, but fitness aside, man, so good. It's very creamy and not at all light on flavor. One thing I see in this tea that I don't see in other Thai teas is little flakes. I don't know what they are, but they look like fish food. I'll drink it. I don't care. If it tasted like this and they were real fish food, I'd still drink it. I have to build up an immunity to it sometime, right? What if I'm trapped in a dungeon and all I have is water and fish food? I'll eat it. It's just fish anyhow. Yeah, fish food is made from fish. Fish are cannibals. Deal with it.

Foco Pennywort Drink

Foco Pennywort Drink
First of all, let me explain the rating. I would not drink this again. It was quite an adventure. I know nothing of whatever pennywort is, and still don't. The image on the front looks like it would have been a drink made out of cilantro, which might have been good. This was better than I had thought it was going to be. The taste was very present. It's full sugar, full flavor, and full color. This was a dark drab green. I put it in a clear, plastic cup and I couldn't see my hand on the other side. I think if I had a glass half as wide I still wouldn't have been able to see it. The taste was just like a sweet tea that some jokester put grass clippings in. If you've even been bored, picked up some grass and put it in your mouth and chewed it, you would have a non-sweetened version of this.

I've had wheat grass and I guess it's a little bit like that, but at least wheat grass has a natural sweet and not an applied sweet. Does that make sense?

I save "1's" for drinks I simply can't finish and this is one of them. I don't feel the need to torture myself since I've got a fridge filled with other stuff. If I was trapped on an island and a case of this washed up on short, I'd drink it, but until then, I'll let someone else do it.
