Review: Arizona Arnold Palmer Southern Style Half & Half Sweet Tea Pink Lemonade


Let me start off by saying a really like the can design on Arizona Arnold Palmer Southern Style Half & Half Sweet Tea Pink Lemonade (wow, is that ever a mouthful!) It's got a nice "down home" feel that makes you just want to sip this on your front porch. But since I don't have a front porch, we'll have to just check out the rest of the drink!

Arizona Arnold Palmer Southern Style Half & Half Sweet Tea Pink Lemonade

Packaged in Arizona's classic 23 oz big cans, this continuation of the popular Arnold Palmer lineup brings a smooth taste to the standard tea/lemonade mix. Opening the can produces a strong berry-ish scent, while the drink itself is tea colored and light brown in hue. The can claims "All Natural Ingredients," but it also contains high fructose corn syrup, so "natural" is up for debate. (Actually, Arizona won a court battle over HFCS and their "natural" claims… which is unfortunate.)

Regarding flavor, this drink is very smooth, staring out with a strong pink lemonade flavor. This taste experience transitions to a black tea finish, which is quite quenching. The flavor matches the package design, creating a lovely, old-timey retroland in your mouth (yeah, I did just write that!) I really like the Pink Lemonade Arnold Palmer. The smoothness is excellent, but it doesn't lose its tea+lemonade flavor roots.

Comments

  1. Oh. I used to drink this from time-to-time, but now that I know it has high fructose corn syrup, I'm going to limit my consumption of this beverage. Whenever I have high fructose corn syrup, my hip joint hurts.
