Drinking Jean Naté!

Back in April

I posted this in my blog back in April, but I didn’t want to put this in the April archives here because nobody would read it:

I’ve noticed that Dasini and Aquafina has started to make waters that are actually worth drinking now. (well, the new Dasani flavored water is too sweet, but that’s what middle America likes, water that doesn’t taste like water) I like the new Aquafina Sparkling Water, though, but I’m sure Middle America won’t because it reminds them of them fancy waters they sell in the glass bottles.

But I found an even better way to drink the Aquafina Sparking water : adding coffee syrup. No! I don’t mean that Nescafe Iced Latte syrup, I mean those syrups that they have at Starbucks that they add to make flavored coffee. I found some Irish Creme syrup at Wal-Mart today, and added it to a bottle of regular Sparking Aquafina with some unwhipped whipping cream, and its so good. It’s just like the Italian Sodas you can get at the cafe at Barnes And Noble (or at the very least, the Italian Sodas you can get Joe Muggs at Books A Million)

You know (months later) I don’t even see Aquafina Sparkling in coolers anymore. I hope they didn’t get rid of it aleready.

Jolt Blue

Jolt Blue. Bought on the same day as the reg. Jolt I wrote about the other day. I didn’t like it that much.

I Don't Need A Jolt Can To Reassure Me!

Nestea Ice Lime

The new Nestea Ice with the menthol stuff in it. It has a cooling sensation that leaves a menthol “cooling” feeling in your mouth.

I tried the Lime Tea one. It was ok at first, but that last sip left an uneasy feeling in my mouth.

Even In A Can, It Tastes Like Shit

Tried Diet Coke with shit Splenda in its canned version yesterday. I thought maybe it would taste better in a can, but no, it still tasted bad. As you remember earlier this year, I tried it in the 20 oz first.

A Sun Drop On A Cloudy Day?

My new neighborhood; Franklin, VA is CRAZY about their Sun Drop soda. There’s even a store down the street from my house that ships in from NC (hence it being a Coke ‘angle bottle’ and not a Cadbury “splash” bottle like it is everywhere else out here).

I don’t like the reg. Sun Drop, but I do like the diet.

There’s also a Sun Drop vending machine down the street from my house. I need to take a pic of it.

Two Sides Of The Diet Rite

This is left over from a couple of weeks ago. I took this pic while I was trying to pack my room and parent’s house up, and it fell by the wayside:
(I wrote this up in my flickr first, so the things about the house are all dated now)

Diet Rite's New Packaging

I know Diet Rite has been around since the dark ages, but I never paid attention to it, I always thought that it would taste like junk.

I finaly bought some when the store near my (soon to be former) house had a 2/5 sale on the Canada Dry/7up products. Diet Rite is one of their products.

I also bought it b/c the cardboard box has the old logo on it (which I liked more) and the cans have the new logo on them.

I liked it. I’d buy it again. I’m getting a little tired of Diet Coke.

Sorry for the messy room. I’m packing.

Two Sides Of The Diet Rite

You can see that the cardboard has Diet Rite’s old packaging, and the cans have the new cheesy packaging.

Jolt Batteries!

I finally found the new Jolt sodas in the resealable cans at a Seven Eleven in Williamsburg. I’m too excited about them! They had the blue flavor (tastes like cream soda to me) and the reg. flavor (which I love). I haven’t seen Jolt in a store out here since 1996-ish. I love the sound the can makes when you open it the first time, it makes this PUAH! sound.
