I Wanted to Hate It!

Note: This is my first review of a product that is not a book, so please forgive me if I miss something.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit drinks like The Switch, but I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. After having my first drink, I can honestly say I wanted to hate it. I mean, seriously, I'm drinking this can of 100% fruit juice with carbonation and reading all these really stupid quotes all over the can (i.e. "100% of what I want in a soda, 0% of what I don't"), wondering how much a 8.3 ounce can of this junk costs (thinking somewhere in the neighborhood of $2.50 or $3.00; and thinking, if I wanted to drink some juice and would drink some juice! I couldn't stop thinking about what is so special about carbonation that I would want to drink this over a glass of OJ. I wanted to scream!

However, I kept my cool, and finished the drink. There was something about this particular flavor that was enjoyable, but not engrossing. There was something in the aftertaste that I did not like, and I think it had to do with the tangerine juice. Tangerine's aren't my bag, either; but it was tolerable.

After discussing this product with my wife (I know, this drink apparently also contains the conversation starter attributes, bonus points for that I suppose) she was like, "this sounds great. Is it like those Izze POMEGRANATE SPARKLING 100% JUICE DRINK??" I responded: "Um.... I guess so..."

I then also looked up the price and learned that I had grossly overestimated the price of a single can (being just over a single dollar). Despite my wanting to hate this product, I've decided to step out of my anti-contemporary culture box, view this product for what it is, and give it a middle rating.

I can see the attraction; I can see the appeal; I just won't ever buy it. I'll stick to my glass of Orange Juice and Tang any day.

Good drinking,


What did you think of this review?

I'm digging your review of a product that's not a book!  Keep 'em coming!  :)

Does this taste anything like orange soda?

Hey thanks! I'm afraid that if I stray too far away from books I'll end up losing all my time to reviewing ridiculous objects in my apartment all day... "Hey this envelope is the perfect size..."

It does and it does not taste like your typical orange sodas. There is definitely a more "real" cirtus taste, but not the standard soda feel. I don't really enjoy Orange Soda (probably less than this product). I can only wonder if the Grape version of The Switch tastes as nasty like Dymatap as Grape Soda does. I'll leave that up to the experts to decide!
What's your opinion on The Switch Orange Tangerine, 8.3 Ounce C...?
