Today I am introducing a new feature called
I do enjoy sharing different products I happen upon with others, and what better way to share than to do it here on the 'ol blog! When occasion presents itself, you can bet I'll share the best and the worst of what I find. As always, nothing is sponsored; I paid for these items, and the opinions are all mine.
So without further ado, here is the first installment of GOOD//NOT GOOD!
I found this gem in the International aisle of my local supermarket and thought "Hey! Why not?" and it made its merry way into my cart. It was joined alongside a Mexican Coke, because I'm nothing if not thorough in my testing. It was good! A bit fruity, even.
Thumbs up to you, Jarritos Mexican Cola.
Kroger has a newish line of store-brand products called "Simple Truth". It seems interesting, and the line extends throughout the store, covering most categories of food. I've had a few Simple Truth products that I've liked, but, oh wow. Not this. First of all, the label makes the claim "Free of 101 preservatives", which seems like a very odd thing to say...how many preservatives exist in the first place, and if its free of 101 of them, how many does this product actually contain? Silly. But the nitty gritty of it is that this stuff tastes like carbonated NyQuil. Straight up. Kroger actually refunded my money for the 4-pack, which was very nice of them. They take good care of me there.
That's a big FAIL for Simple Truth Peach Pear soda.
