Bud Light Lime Raz-Ber-Rita

Bud Light Lime Raz-Ber-Rita is a raspberry flavored malt beverage that isn’t sure if it wants to be a beer or a margarita. It has the sweet and tangy raspberry flavor combined with the mellow zing of a Bud Light Lime. It’s a weird concoction. They suggest that you pour it over ice. You should never pour beer over ice. I don’t know why they want you to pour it over ice. Just sip it from the can like a normal person. It’s still a Bud Light no matter what artificial flavors and syrups they add to it. The can says that it’s a Margarita with a Twist. I’m guessing the twist is that it doesn’t have any tequila in it. That’s pretty unusual for a margarita. The most redeeming feature of this mediocre drink is the fact that it’s 8% alcohol by volume so you’ll get more buzzed drinking one of these than a regular Budweiser. I really wouldn’t recommend either.

Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale

Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry & Chocolate Ale is an American Brown Ale from Oregon’s Rogue Ales. Rogue is known for interesting and unique brews, and this is one of their more extreme offerings. It pours a dark brown with a creamy tan head. It has an intriguing aroma with chocolate and toasted malts, vanilla, raspberry, caramel, and coffee. It smells good, but it tastes even better. It’s sweet, chocolate, and you get the sweet and tangy sensation of raspberry, but and a hint of pretzel. It’s slightly salty and has bread/biscuit thing going on. It’s unlike any other brown ale I’ve tasted. You actually see the cocoa powder clinging to the side of the glass as you drink it. It has a decent 6.75% alcohol content and it makes for an excellent dessert beverage. I wouldn’t want to drink more than one though. It comes in a bright pink bottle with a gingerbread man-like voodoo doll on the label. It stands out on the shelf and that’s hard to do these days. This is a good beer and worth trying out, but I don’t think it will become your favorite beer.

Blue Raspberry Flavor

Why is Blue Raspberry such a popular flavor for candy? I can understand why Raspberry would be so popular. It’s kind of sweet, it’s kind of tart, it’s a very well balanced flavor. But why do they have to make it blue? I guess it makes it a little bit more fun but candy is already fun, they don’t need to dye it unnatural colors. The only thing Blue Raspberry flavors do is stain your tongue blue, and that’s not always a good thing. Sometimes you try to hide fact that you have candy. You’ll pop a piece into your mouth when nobody is looking. But you can’t be discreet if you have a blue tongue. Everyone knows that a blue tongue means that you have candy, and then you’ll have to share with everybody. A blue tongue is a dead giveaway, and an unfortunate side effect of a Blue Raspberry flavor.

Life Savers

It’s hard not to write about a fruity candy that you orally insert and suck on without sounding a little gay, but I will try. Life Savers are a brand of ring-shaped candies. They make hard candies and they also make gummies. This article is about the fruit Life Savers, the familiar five-flavored hard candy roll that you grew up with. The five flavors are Cherry, Raspberry, Watermelon, Orange, and Pineapple. If that sounds delicious, it’s because they are. Cherry is the best flavor of the bunch, but the rest are also good. If you’re still reading this, good for you because I’m going to tell you a secret. The next time you’re smoking a bowl, pop a Life Saver in your mouth and take a hit. You now have candy-flavored smoke and your weed will taste amazing. You’re welcome. Just try not to inhale the Life Saver because you could potentially choke to death. You can still enjoy Life Savers without weed, but I wouldn’t recommend it because weed makes everything better.

Martinelli’s Sparkling Prickly Passion Lemonade

Martinelli’s is mostly known for their line of non-alcoholic sparkling ciders. You mostly see Martinelli’s around the holidays. The adults get wine and champagne; the kids get Martinelli’s. But they make other products too, and Sparkling Prickly Passion Lemonade is one of them. It’s a blend of filtered water, sugar, lemon, passion fruit, raspberry & prickly pear juices from concentrate. It’s all-natural and lightly carbonated. It reminds me of San Pellegrino, but with a less intense flavor. I got it because I was intrigued by the prickly pear. You don’t see that many beverages that include prickly pear juice. It kind of gets lost because of all the other fruit juices, but I think I could taste it and I think that I like it. I would get Martinelli’s Sparkling Prickly Passion Lemonade again, but it’s kind of hard to find and I’m not going to go searching for it. If I see it again, I’ll grab a few and hoard them.

Simply Lemonade with Raspberry

Simply Lemonade with Raspberry is an all-natural lemonade with raspberry puree. It’s not made from concentrate, it says so right on the label. It’s also 11% juice. I don’t know if that’s good or not. I will go out on a limb and say yes. It’s a healthier alternative to soda, but there’s still a lot of sugar. There’s no caffeine because it’s lemonade and that would be weird. It’s refreshing and it has vitamins. Vitamins are good for you.
