Mountain Dew Major Melon Tastes Like a Slurpee

That was my impression of my first taste of the new Mtn Dew Major Melon, charged with Watermelon. Reminded me of a 7-Eleven slurpee – no specific flavor but the general taste/sweetness and the “bite.” Overall, this drink is good, so good that half of the 20 oz bottle is now gone while writing these […]

Surge, It’s Been a Long Time

It’s been a long time since my last drink of Surge. Discontinued in the early 2000’s, Surge is now back (at least temporarily) for that retro caffeine kick with the OG recipe. It’s not a reboot or a new flavor. This is straight up Surge. After 14 years, Surge is more fizzy than I remember. […]

Passing on the Pepsi Paradise Mango

Spotted the Pepsi Next Paradise Mango drink at the Palama Market, and though the thought of the mix of flavors baffled me, I had to try this drink. That was one week ago. Today, I’ve already forgotten the flavor. Okay, I do remember one tidbit, my initial taste. On my first sip, I do remember […]
