Famous House Pearl Milk Tea

This is the last of the two drinks I got at an Asian Food Mart on Jefferson Ave in Newport News, VA on my birthday.

This is just like that Bubble Tea that had a big wave of popularity a few years ago in the States. I got tired of sucking in those tapioca balls so I drank the rest of the drink through my teeth because the sweet milky tea was pretty good.

I like the can though. I like that picture of a living room.

Vitamin Water Formula 50

Vitamin Water Formula 50

Ew. This is the worst tasting vitamin water I’ve ever had.

The label is funny though:

“50 Cent’s new album is bound to go platinum. So formula 50 decided to go platinum too. Not to be outdone, we are happy to annouce the release of our own album, “hydrate or die tryin'”. All we need is one little short out at the MTV VIdeo Music Awards, sukaz be movin’ out of the way at them beverage conferences. Plus, our drink as the nutrients you need to fuel you through your day. That’s just how we roll here in Queens.”

I found this with a friend back in June in Roanoke Rapids, NC at a convenience store that actually had its own Vitamin Water cooler.

Diet Pepsi Jazz Strawberries & Cream
Originally uploaded by Look In The Tunk.

No, I don’t know why they called it “Jazz” either. That makes no sense.

I almost bought a fridgepack of this stuff, I’m happy I didn’t. It’s very overpowering. It’s like sucking on a strawberry Creme Saver while drinking a Diet Pepsi.

I hear that this is a limited edition along with the Black Cherry French Vanilla.

It also wins the “busiest label ever” contest.

My friend Sarah’s take on it:

it’s all wtf on so many levels. firstly, what in the world even is it? MORE flavoured cola? and… then, it’s like… JAZZ? what in the.. i don’t even… the hell?

This was miles better than the Iced Light Coffee that came out earlier this year. Light years better.

I found this in the new energy drink cooler that the Food Lion in Courtland put up. IT’s not full yet though. It just has some of Pepsi’s energy drinks (Amp, Sobe, and Starbucks Double Shot) and Food Lion’s lame entrant in the Energy Drink field.”

Gary & I found this at an Asian Market on my birthday last month. I don’t like this stuff! It’s a Caramel Apple Soda, and the caramel gives it a dirty aftertase.

No, I really don’t know what that doll is. My family has been trying to figure it out for years. You can take out the little girls in her apron, but we don’t know exactly what they do.

Jello Piña Colada and Margarita Limited Editon Flavors
Originally uploaded by Look In The Tunk.

I’ll include this in here because its something based on a drink. I bought these with Gary the day after my birthday at Wal Mart when they were on a display back in late June. Gary hates coconut so he got the Strawberry Daquri flavor.

The Margarita tased like those green lollypops you got at the bank when you were a little kid, but I reallly liked the Piña Colada flavor. There’s an “Island Pineapple” flavor of Jello that I thought would tase like this, but nope. It had to be the nastiest Jello I’ve ever had.

I’ve had this picture sitting on my computer since June 22nd. Whoops.

My friend Gary gave this to me when he came to see me last month. He gave me a bottle of the Peppermint and the Spearmint. I perfer the Peppermint and he perfers the Spearmint.

This was another drink Gary & I found at Big Lots in North Carolina last month. I dunno if this stuff is still around since its at Big Lots. I really liked it. It’s one of my favorite Fuze drinks now. It doesn’t taste all “corn syrupy” like the Lipton tea drinks, or fake like some of the Nestea tea drinks.

Sprite Zero 12 oz bottles
Originally uploaded by Look In The Tunk.

Diet Sprite to me has always tasted horrible. It’s up there with the worst diet sodas of all time. And for the record, Diet Sprite and Spite Zero is the exact.same.drink.

I figured “what the heck, I haven’t had Diet Sprite since I was 11 so I’ll try it again since these little bottles are only 50¢ each”. It’s still bad.

No, I didn’t mix the rest up with some Disaronno. I was just trying to find some minatures to group the picture around. (small moleskine, small pilot G2 pen).
