Brisk Half & Half Blueberry Lemonade

I went to 7-Eleven with the munchies the other day and left with a six-pack of beer, some chips, and a bottle of Brisk Half & Half Blueberry Lemonade. It’s basically an Arnold Palmer, which is half iced tea and half lemonade, but with blueberry-flavored lemonade instead of regular lemonade. It’s blue in color with a little purple tint. It tastes alright, but it’s a little too much on the sweet side. It has a syrupy-candy flavor and is too sugary to be refreshing. It’s not healthy, nor does it pretend to be. It’s a fucking blue soda. There’s no way that it’s good for you. And it has the unfortunate side effect of turning your tongue blue. It makes you look like you blew a Smurf.

Bai 5 Brasilia Blueberry

Bai5 Brasilia Blueberry is a 100% natural superfruit infused, antioxidant packed beverage that is naturally sweetened and low in calories. It’s also naturally caffeinated because the superfruit that they use is coffeefruit. It doesn’t taste like coffee. It tastes like watered down blueberry juice. It tastes great and is quite refreshing. It’s a good way to start the day and it makes your hangover slightly more bearable. I would get it again, and I look forward to trying the other flavors in the Bai 5 lineup.

Red Bull – The Blue Edition

Red Bull is the undisputed king of the energy drinks. But even they feel the need to shake things up a bit every once in a while and so they have created Silver, Red, and Blue Editions of their signature product. Silver is lime flavored, the red is cranberry flavored, and The Blue Edition is blueberry flavored. It’s not overly sweet and its taste vaguely resembles blueberries. It tastes sort of like a diet drink while it’s on your tongue, but there’s no lingering aftertaste. It takes some getting used to, but I like it more and more with each sip. If you like regular Red Bull, you’ll also like this. It also has a cool blue can with cool graphics and appearances are important. You’ll make friends if you buy The Blue Edition Red Bull.

Rockstar Energy Water – Blueberry Pomegranate Acai

Bottled water is a product that shouldn’t even exist. It’s like canned air or a container of sunlight. But people buy bottled water and they buy it a lot and there is profit to be had. There used to be only a few brands of bottled water, now there are dozens of different brands. Then Vitamin Water came out, and that caused a whole bunch of other companies to come out with their own brands of super water. Thanks to the consumer power of sheep, we now have Rockstar Energy Water. It’s water infused with B vitamins, taurine, and caffeine. There are a few different flavors but I tried the Blueberry Pomegranate Acai. It’s less than 1% juice, with no sugar and no calories. There’s a very slight aftertaste, it’s hardly noticeable but it’s there.

This isn’t water. This is a water-based beverage. I don’t think you can legally call this water anymore. Water is made of hydrogen and oxygen. That’s a pretty short list of ingredients. Rockstar Energy Water has 17 ingredients including magnesium lactate, acesulfame potassium, and pyridoxine hydrochloride. Nothing enhances water like a bunch of random chemicals. There’s no way that this shit is good for you. At least soda doesn’t lie and pretend to be healthy. I think it’s time to put an end to super water.
