Pointless Nonsense

Posted in Soda by Bill on December 7, 2011

Blenheim Ginger Ale is the first one I couldn’t finish. It’s a really strong ginger flavor. Less ginger ale, more raw ginger. At first, it tasted like a delicious and strong ginger ale, but then the aftertaste hit and I thought it might be poison. And then I set it down but kept grabbing it and sipping from it forgetting how gross it is. At the halfway point I had to toss it. Frighteningly, the website says the gold cap version I had is “mild,” and they make a red-capped “hot” bottles. I can’t imagine why anyone would want something stronger than this rancid shit, but I am generally a wuss about such things. It could be other folks might find this kinda thing perfectly delicious, but not me. It’s been an hour since I poured it out and my throat is still burning.

I tried to wash the taste out with Dad’s Red Cream Soda, but it too is gross. Disgustingly sweet. 250 calories in 12 oz, 60 more than any other one I’ve had so far. Also, I don’t know why it’s red. Except maybe to remind diabetics of blood, and the disastrous effects this drink will have on their blood sugar. I also poured half of this out.

    […] Ginger Ale had me worried it would be rancid like the last one, but it was actually really good. Not as sweet as the big brand ginger ale and with some real bite […]
