Mich ultra makes it so hard to drink and drive.

I also thought the new coke branding was dumb. They're losing share to bubbly water, water with enhancements, regular water, and energy drinks. Not to other sodas. Why are you making more sodas in different cans?

Diet Coke was losing a lot of ground in the marketplace, so they’re repositioning Diet Coke to “appeal more to Millenials”. Apparently they think Millenials will be attracted more to stupid flavors in cans that don’t fit right in cupholders.

Whenever you go to a place with a Coke Freestyle machine (like Five Guys, where you have the touchscreen that allows you to create whatever fucking flavor of soda you want from like a couple hundred options? that one...) I like making cherry Diet Cokes, so I decided I’d try the Feisty Cherry. TiVo knows I’m not gonna respect a docile beverage, so thankfully I can feel like a Feisty one is better representation of what I want to drink in 2018 as an empowered woman. They showed up at the local grocery store, so I bought an eight-pack of the Feisty Cherry and tried one once they had time to properly chill. Guh. It’s garbage. Kind of tart. Too much feisty. Too little cherry. Hard pass. Not really interested in even trying the other flavors (or at least paying to try them) so I’ll just stick to regular Diet Coke. Thankfully the regular stuff they’re intending to still sell in the usual 12-ounce can shape so I can drive safely with one in my car. I just hope they don’t ruin the Coke Freestyle cherry flavors now.


I assumed these were going to be shitty sparkling waters, like La Croix. They're actually flavored colas, huh? I bet they'd make more money on shitty sparkling waters. Those things are huge around here.

Also "Feisty Cherry" would be a good nickname for a girl who teases you but won't give it up.

I had an sparkling Aquafina with berry flavor in Florida for Christmas and thatthing was disgusting. They dialed up the carbonation to a 15 so you could only take a sip at a time. Hard pass sons, if you do see it in your grocery store.

I had a 'sco moment last night when I finished the last rye I had available, no beer in the fridge, so I had to scrounge for one more drink. I settled on this:

This tequila is owned by a couple from my old town of Draper, Utah. It was quite pleasant drinking it straight. Strong recommend if you see it around and want to tequila goon it up a bit.

the Utah DABC must come here. Because I stopped at the liquor store on the way to dinner the other night to bring a bottle of wine. And what was there:

Image

This wine has been brought up in the shout box recently, and I have never had it. So this was all very exciting, so I purchased it. (Actually, I requested that my ex-wife purchase it as she was meeting some clients, and she could expense it. Even more exciting)

At any rate, it was about $85 a bottle. It was a good wine, but not great and there are certainly better alternatives at that price point. Its finish is not really to my liking. It has kind of a dull, earthy flavor at the end. It is worth trying, but for the price is not worth purchasing regularly.

Thank you, Drew.

I have to be honest, #s... I absolutely LOVED the detail that your wife paid for this wine. Kite knows what I mean.

I'm glad you sort of enjoyed the wine, though. Looks like we can put this Drew Bledsoe mystery to bed.

Please tell me how you ascertained he actually sort of enjoyed this wine? Because I cannot decipher it, at all.
