Diet Coke Plus

I finally got to try Diet Coke Plus today when I went to Food Lion to pick up a single roll of T.P. (why bother paying an arm and a leg for a pack at Food Lion when mom and I are going to Wal Mart tomorrow?). It was kinda flat, but it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be.

Remember two years ago when I started taking photos of every beverage I tried, and Diet Coke With Splenda was the first drink I reviewed?

I thought of that today as I was trying this beverage (since after all Diet Coke put a blue cap on this drink as well), but this time, Diet Coke Plus blew Diet Coke With Splenda out of the water.

I took this picture with the self timer on my Polaroid Spectra Onyx.

expect a lot of updates soon. I’ve been behind.

Respect

A little kool aid ish for my standards of "good for you flavored water". The taste reminds me of that old Pepsi Fruit Works cranberry apple. Wimpy is laughing at it because it knows it will never compete with Vitamin water.

A friend that works in the biz says that this is, "Coke Consolidated/BYB’s answer to Vitaminwater. "

Ah, Coke’s new balleyhooed sparking tea that is a calorie burner — but make sure not to exceed three cans a day! The can says:

drinking more than three cans a day will not have an additional effect

The berry was the best of the three flavors. Peach was too candy like and green was lacking something.

I got this at the Seven Eleven the other day. It’s supposed to be good for your heart because the hip thing to do now is to eat or drink dark chocolate because it has 1,288 antioxidants in it.

The article on the eMac is one about how the “FDA Calls Cocoa-Via Bars Adulterated, Mislabled”

This was pretty good for something that has Mango in it. I usually don’t like Mango by itsself.

See me kill two birds with one stone by taking a photo fo the Orangina poster from the allposters.com cataloge we got in the mail?

Wal Mart is finally carrying Odwalla. This flavor was a bit plain though.

Sweeter and more apple-y than Odwalla Superfood.

Wow, Wal Mart is really getting some nice stuff in. (well, that Special K 2 0 is another story)

I FINALLY found the Pom Tea. I’ve been looking for this stuff since May. I haven’t had it yet.

The Bolthouse is a Mocha-ish drink. Haven’t had it yet.

I drank the Odwalla (!!!) on the way home [Blueberry C Monster]. And it was good. Mom said it smelled like the Iron pills she had to take when she was pregnant with me.

I’m drinking the Special K 2 0 Protein Water right now–it tastes like lemon meringue. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not. Nobody wants to drink something that is the color of piss.

When I first saw this on the shelf, I thought that it was something like that Liquid Cereal drinks. I hought it was a drink that tasted like Speciak K and Red Berries or something (there was an..uh red?? flavor as well).

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.

Gary and I found these drinks at Big Lots when we were in North Carolina last month. I just tried the lemon lime flavor and it was just disgusting. Maybe it tasted better when it was in date.

This is supposed to be a vitamin and mineral suppliment drink, and it has Freshcan technology. When you open the can, “the activation begins…the sound and the fizz are the vitamins & minerals mixing with the beverage”. Well, I think my vitamins and minerals in my can were pretty dried up. The top of the was filthy so I had to drink mine with a straw and I kept on sucking up clumps of whatever was in the freshcan.

I’m sure this may of tasted decent when it was in date. The orange expires on the 21st of July. Maybe I’ll have better luck with that one.

///edit, February 2007///

I assume this stuff is discontinued by now?
