So after talking with Deej I’ve realized I’ve been a bad,bad blogger! For what it’s worth though things have really conspired against me. I know that’s a lame excuse but things really have been rough lately, I won’t go into details because it’s not relevant but I promise to try to update more often and with “real” content instead of filler or updates. Some would argue that the majority of my stuff is filler and I wouldn’t disagree with you but you take what you get right? 😀
So anyway I was talking to Deej earlier and after much discussion of movies, board games and culinary adventures I decided I’d throw up a new blog because…well I miss you guys!!! Besides that Deej said he had like 50 new posts planned and I’ll be danged if I’m gonna let him show me up!!
So I was out running errands earlier this evening and found myself at my local 7-11 store and noticed the were advertising the new Mountain Dew Voltage Slurpee. As frequent readers may remember I tried the three new Dew flavors over last summer and Voltage was my second favorite of the three, I much preferred Super Nova but that’s just me. If your not familiar with Mountain Dew Voltage it’s a Windex blue colored version of Montain Dew flavored with blueberry, ginseng and some other stuff that may work as a soda but does not work well as a Slurpee!
You can’t really see the blue at the bottom but there was no way I was gonna get an entire 524 oz. Slurpee with a flvor I may or may not like, in hindsight this was a good decision because the Voltage Slurpee tastes disgusting!! To me it tastes like the Buttered Popcorn Jelly Belly’s and to play on a theme I don’t want to think about buttered popcorn when I’m drinking a Slurpee. Now I know there are those of you saying “But Dan how can you tell what it really tastes like when you mix all the flavors?” Fair enough, two ways I can tell. First of all the blue gunk was at the bottom of the cup so it was the first thing I sucked up when I took a drink and if you look real close at the picture you can also see a little bit of blue on top which I also tried solo. I’m just glad I mixed in regular Mountain Dew and Cherry on top because if I had just gotten blue I honestly don’t think I would have bought it.
My trip to 7-11 wasn’t a total bust though, I also spotted these babies!
These sport all your favorite red flavors Cherry, Strawberry, Watermelon and one I’ve never tried before Fruit Punch (which is damn tasty!) So if you see these bad boys while your out and about give them a shot, if you like Starburst that is.
Well kiddies I know it’s not much of a post but it’s better than nothing right? I have a few new posts in mind I just need to sit my butt down and type them out. I’m hoping that happens sooner rather than later but we’ll see. Anyways, thanks for sticking with me during my prolonged absence and I should be back soon.
