Juicy 

9 Mar

  
I just wanted to lap up juice like a kat. Don’t give your cat juice, by the way.

Okay normally if I am drinking juice it involves some fermentation.

But free juice.

Colorful juice.

I’ll try it. And I did.

V-8 sent me some new brews to try. They are:

  • Orange Kiwi (has Mandarin Orange, Carrots, Grapes, Sweet Potatoes, Kiwi, Apple)
  • Red Radiance (Grapes, Sweet Potatoes, Beets, Watermelon, Pink Guava, Apple, Carrots)
  • Pineapple Fusion (Grapes, Sweet Potatoes, Pineapples, Carrots, Passion Fruit, Apple)

Okay the thrilling taste test results:

Pineapple Fusion! I love pineapple! My favorite of the bunch. It was the least processed of tastes. The most singular of tastes. As in it tasted very pineapple-y. As opposed to a pineapple blended with other things. And god is pineapple good. I would never have guessed there was sweet potato there seeing as I hate sweet potato. But I am happy it worked here. I like this juice. I would drink it and use it in drinks. And smoothies.

Red Fusion: I thoroughly enjoyed. To me it was the most balanced, actually. It was quite sweet but passion fruit has this way of being both sweet and sour. Maybe that was it. It was plush.

The Orange Kiwi: Look, I did not love this one but I do not like plain orange juice so…not gonna talk more. It was highly identifiable as orange in origin so if you like orange juice by all means…go get it tiger.

In the end they all taste sort of similar. But they have veggies! And for all that sweetness less sugar I suppose? At least not added like some juice. Hmmm. If you want very pretty delicious juice reach for that Red Radiance. If you want to feel the tropical vibe get ye some Pineapple Fusion. 

Next week we will return to your regularly scheduled booze.

Matcha Miércoles

23 Sep

  
Or Matcha Mercredi. If you like French better than Spanish. Or Matcha suiyōbi if we are to be culturally (if not alliteratively) correct. And apparently the Japanese term for Wednesday means water day. And you need water to make tea. How apropos.

Although this matcha is mixed with juice. Fuck. I can’t work without wine, guys. But I will.

Because apparently:
  
I would drink the shit out of the citrus matcha. It tastes of orange and pineapple and has a bit of texture but not too much. Well. Almost too much but it has the right amount of texture to make you say to yourself: this is health in a wine glass. I am doing something good for me.

I’m big on the psychosomatic response. It is reallll.

On the coconut flavor: it did not taste tooooo coconutty  which in my book was good. And it had fiber so my digestive system was pleased. In fact it was more savory than the citrus flavor, I thought. So I would drink both of these. I’d choose the citrus as my first pick though.

There was a rougher texture to the coconut flavor. Which if you like pulp you’d be into. So if you like pulp and coconut go with that. If you  just want tasty greens with the added benefits that come with matcha do that. Yea, antioxidants!

No more aging, here I come. I stopped doing that eons ago.
