Two short updates

1. Prigat Clear Fruit Drinks – I am very leery of colorless flavored drinks. I’m still recovering from the “mineral water with fruit flavorings” trend, which is basically an excuse to sell watered down juice and claim it’s somehow better than real juice. Or than real water. Or something. Ugh.
Prigat’s new fruit drinks, however, are a surprise. I tasted the Clear Pineapple drink, and found it surprisingly palatable. It has flavor – real flavor, not water with a hint of flavor – but is not excessively sweet. It doesn’t taste anything like pineapple of course, but hey – pineapple doesn’t taste much like pineapple either. It had the perfectly acceptable taste of a pineapple popsicle melted down into a bottle, with some of the sweetness taken away. All in all, a fine beverage if you’re into that sort of thing. And it’s colorless, which is always a plus.

2. Diet Grapefruit Fanta – I had wanted to find the non-diet variety, but settled for what I could find.
What can I say? It’s great. It has a fake grapefruity flavor, it’s a bit bitter and not too sweet, and even the aspartame is hardly felt. Heartily recommended. I’ll go buy some bottles to take home – maybe if I buy enough, they won’t take it off the shelf in a month or two.
