On the television is an episode of The Daily Show from late 2000, with Jonathan Katz as guest. I’m slowly putting all my Daily Show’s on DVD.
This was nasty, the mint taste was just too overpowering. Wtf is up with all the bad Frappichino bottled flavors lately? We all remember the horrible Strawberry flavor from last spring.
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. "
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.
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?
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).

In 1998, 7up ruined everything when they reformulated into a “crisp refreshing taste”. I know I never bought any again.
Sales have gone flat since Sierra Mist came on the scene, and due to Pepsi bottlers dropping 7up in favor for Sierra Mist. 7up is trying again with a “natural” forumula. I didn’t know that corn syrup was natural! The can even states on the back, ‘NO FRUIT JUICE’.
