Review: Surge (2014)


Surge (2014)

It arrived in the 90's. Challenged Mountain Dew. Failed. Grew a rabid fanbase. Now Surge returns 12 years after being discontinued. Is the fuss worth it?

Review: Monster Energy Ultra Black


Monster Energy Ultra Black

A black cherry-flavored Monster? That actually tastes good? And has zero calories? Where can I find it? 7-Eleven.

Update: Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash 2014


Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash 2014

For the 9th season in a row, Pepsi has brought back Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash as a limited time seasonal offering. For 2014, the packaging was redesigned with a new Sierra Mist logo… because someone's cousin who knows Illustrator needed a paycheck.

Review: Sprite 6 Mix


Sprite 6 Mix

Lemon lime meets cherry and orange in this limited edition Sprite flavor extension. It's subtle and pleasantly refreshing… which is something that can't be said for this drink's namesake.

Review: Sprite Blast


Sprite Blast

This mostly-sour version of Sprite is a nice break to mix up your taste buds, but flavor doesn't seem like something that would be sustainable in the marketplace in the long run.

On the Shelf: Butterfly by Mariah Carey


Butterfly by Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey. Beverage named "Butterfly". Available at Walgreen's. Insert lame musical puns here.

Review: Red Bull – The Summer Edition


Red Bull - The Summer Edition

Red Bull breaks with tradition and rolls out a limited time "tropical" flavor, featuring the tastes of papaya, pineapple, and mango. Surprisingly good!

Review: 7Up Tropical 16 oz


7Up 16 oz Can Lineup: Lemon-Lime, Cherry, & Tropical

Refreshingly different, but scatterbrained in flavor. Peach, melon, papaya, pineapple, lemon, lime… it's all in there!

Review: Mountain Dew Baja Blast in Bottles & Cans


Mountain Dew Baja Blast - 24 oz can, 12 oz can, & 20 oz bottle

For a limited time during Summer 2014, Taco Bell-exclusive flavor Baja Blast is available in stores via 20 oz bottles, 24 oz cans, and 12 packs of 12 oz cans. Thanks to the packaging, it's far more consistent in flavor.

Review: Purity Organic Strawberry Paradise


Purity Organic Strawberry Paradise

Real juice. Real cane sugar. Really great flavor! A high quality product with an excellent taste… but you'll pay for it with the calories.
