Sobe Is Nasty, Deal With It!

Most people have tried that piss in a bottle of a drink, Sobe. It is GAAAWWWD AWFUL!Arizona Tea, Monster Energy Drink, Red Bull...all those tasted like shit. Tea is one of my favorite drinks, in fact, I am most talented when it comes to making iced tea if I do say so myself...and I do. So when I was told that I need to try Sobe and Sobe Lean, I thought, "Sure, I'll give it a try". I couldn't spit that bongwater out fast enough. Same went for Arizona Tea. I think someone from Arizona personally pisses in each bottle.

HOWEVER, there is a glimmer of hope for bottled tea. I know Red Diamond makes pretty good tea in big AND small bottles. But that isn't the clear winner in my ongoing searches for something non-alcoholic to drink and keep my ass out of trouble. SO, after much searching and tasting, I have come up with I found to be a clear winner:

BEHOLD

Gold Peak Sweetened Green Tea. I first got a taste of this at the Branson Landing Subway. They had this on tap on a tea urn with all kinds of other flavors. Me, I'm a bit of a purist...mostly. So, those flavored numbers like peach or raspberry were out of the question. Anyway, after the first drink of this stuff, DAMN!!! I was hooked. This was 3 months ago and since then haven't found it anywhere else, on tap or otherwise. Imagine my surprise when I found it sitting on a shelf at the grocery store. I was elated, still am, bought 4 bottles. Wanna know something interesting about this tea? It's produced by Coca-Cola. Hopefully this stuff will get popular and put Sobe AND Arizona out to pasture...including that asshole that keeps pissing in the bottles.

I am the Complaint Department Manager and I approve this schill.

Ok. The last time you recommended a drink, it was Coke Zero. I believed you and tried it and it SUCKED! I'll keep my eyes open for this, though, and I will once again believe you and try it. I hope you're right about this one!

Red Bull's not bad once you get used to it. As for putting that asshole out in Arizona who pisses in bottles out to pasture, how do you expect John McCain to earn a living if you do that?

I'm gonna have to try this - I've never seen this ever.

Kim said...

Yeah, he did talk about the Dr. Pepper knock off here..Mr. Pibb, right? You know, that's not bad. Unless it's diet. I hate diet soda. But we talked about Coke Zero, too, and, as it's a diet drink, it's also yucky!

Kim - You're tatse buds are fuctup, plain and simple. I'm always right. Your brain doesn't want to attempt an alternative to calorie filled drinks and thus form a fundamental attribution error in a product form rather than the traditional people form. I.E., ya gotta want it.

Red - Not a knock off, an original and better than Dr.P.

Doc - I found an energy drink locally here called Rooster Booster and Nuclear Energy. Despite the cheesy names, they're hands down WAY better than Red Bull. As for mad Jack...you have a point.

Darius - Damn, boy! Where the hell you been?!?! I hope you find it and enjoy it.

Oh...BAH!

I don't think I've ever had Sobe. But I do think Arizona is nasty stuff.

I'm intrigued by your new suggestion. Maybe Coke is putting it in test markets to see how well it does. If it gets enough good reception, they'll go national. If it hits NY, I'll definitely take a swig.

I'm looking for this next time I'm in the grocery store!

You're right that tea is good. I read this post and happened to see it in a store here in Detroit and decided to try.
