All I wanted was....

While at the store a couple days ago, I saw some "pomegranate-blueberry" juice. It sounded awesome, so I bought a bottle of it.
I'm about to try it for the very first time, and will then blog about my reaction.
Before I start pouring it into the glass, though, let me pause to make a list of my hopes and expectations:

1. I hope it tastes so deliciously fruity that I have hallucinations of blueberries talking to me.
I hope the blueberries speak English, otherwise I'll have no idea what the hell they're saying.
I hope all the cells in my body are so incredibly awe-struck that they never even consider the idea of becoming sick, ever again, even if I am within 3 feet of a person whose head is rotating and spewing snot as thick as pea soup.
I hope a million dollars magically appears in front of me. Or behind me. Someplace where I can easily find it. I'm not picky.

I suppose I could've listed other things as well, but I don't want to be unrealistic.
Ok, everybody ready? I'm getting the juice....
Pouring the juice....
Tasting the juice.....

Well, the aroma is sort of like a multivitamin.
The initial flavor is sort of like... a multivitamin.
The aftertaste is semi-fruity, but nothing exceptional.
I detect absolutely no blueberry flavor whatsoever.
There are no hallucinations, no million dollars, and I just overheard my cells discussing the possibility of Bird Flu.

I sell alot of that juice crap. Everyone is on the pommegranate bandwagon due to the reported antioxidant levels. Most of it tastes like toad snot. There are a few that are not too bad though. Check in the all natural sections and get pure juice without the preservitives. Some of them are pretty good. They cost more but you get a better product.

Damn I sound like a friggin produce guy. Crap.

This is my day off too.

Let's talk about boobs or something.

Later Y'all.

I saw that in the store the other day, and about crapped at the price tag. Hope you got it on sale!

Want a laugh - I've been drinking prune juice lately (and not just 'cuz I like the taste!) Yup, you know you're over the hill when...

I used to get asked to make soap with pomegranate juice a lot--til the customers found out they were getting ass-brown soap instead of pretty dark red soap because the color of pomegranates doesn't hold in a basic solution.

Now I get asked for the scent and MAYBE a little powdered pomegranate swirled in.

Oh--off-topic--have a fabulous Grapefruit fragrance coming soon. I've ordered it and am waiting for delivery.

It's all about the build up, and then no finish. Dang that juice anyway!

Janna said...

Meloncutter: Do boobs have a lot of antioxidants?

Fab: I like mine marinated in garlic vinaigrette.

Bee: I do!

Morgen: Prune juice? Really?

Pand0ra: Ooooh! Grapefruit!!!

Travis: Yup! Just like sex! (oops, was that TMI?)

Mo said...

Yes, I love prunes.
And now that I'm over 40, I love them for more than their flavor!

(see what you have to look forward to, youngster?)

Janna said...

Morgen: I sometimes like prunes, but am not all that fond of the concept of "prune JUICE". Maybe when I visit, you can talk me into trying a VERY small amount. I'll try to remember not to fart afterward.
