POMx Lychee Green Tea

Posted in Food by Chris on September 29, 2010
Anyone who knows me knows I’m a sucker for pricey bottled drinks. Grocers that sell this POMx Lychee Green Tea have my MO down pat. This 16oz bottle of juice is one of my favorites as it quenches my thirst and antioxidizes my ish. For those unfamiliar with pomegranate juice, it’s a bit tart and a bit dry- but hey, I never said it was a Kool-Aid. Besides, the Kool-Aid man’s got Diabetes, high blood pressure, hypertension, and Glaucoma. Lucky for him, POM’s around ease his fat boy’s ailments. I’m not guaranteeing any miracles, but drinking some lychee green tea can’t be the worst thing that you’ve done to yourself. Chug it or sip it. You’re a grown-ass man, you can decide for yourself.
The Zub ZenV is one of the few that are two-toned albeit not the most radical.

Up against the likes of flat water, soda, and juices; sparkling water gets the privilege of having the title of, “The Red-Headed Step-Child of  All Beverages”. Those of you who dislike it should try to look at it this way: what did you think of your first sip of beer after you began your teenage years guzzling Bartles and James? I’m sure you can still feel how your face cringed whence it hit your palette. Today, you’re making your family tree proud, slamming them down with no remorse like WWE Superstar Stone Cold Steve Austin. Sparkling water is severely underrated and it’s not, by any means, as foul as your first sip of beer. Upside: it helps your digestive system.  Downside: It makes you pee.  That’s a fair tradeoff. So to all of you Cola fiends out there, step your non-alcoholic beverage game up and pour yourself a glass of the bubbly goodness. Please, don’t forget to squeeze in some lime. My personal favorite is S.Pellegrino, and that’s partially due to the fact that it’s readily available. You can pick yourself up a case of S.Pellegrino for $15 at your local CostCo.
