Extinct Beverage Tasting:
I spotted this one while vacationing on Cape Cod. If you are familiar with Cape Cod you will know that it's the little growth off of the end of Massachusetts that juts our into the Atlantic Ocean. The thing about people from Massachusetts and my native Rhode Island is that they all fancy themselves as somewhat experts on Cape Cod because everyone in this area has been there at some time or another. So they're always like, what part of Cape Cod did you go to? Then I inevitably say, "Uh... the part near the beach." Then they try to help you out by putting up their arm, bending their elbow and pointing to a part of the elbow.
This doesn't help seeing I just used some shoddy directions my friend gave me and didn't even know the name of the town we were in.
Once again we are faced with a beverage that is afraid of itself It is made by the Snapple company who refuses to acknowledge that they are at all involved with its production. One can easily imagine the upper echelon of the Snapple Corporation after being disappointed by tasting Venom simply sending it off on its own to die.
It bears the "Elements" logo. Elements is a subdivision of Snapple used for their giant glass bottle drinks such as Volcano, Meteor and Rain. All the other Elements drinks bear the Snapple logo as well and are all featured on snapple's website: Snapple.com. All except Venom.
It's obvious to me that Venom is quickly being aborted by its disappointed parent company. It has nothing going for it. In an over saturated Energy Drink market they are introducing a drink that tastes worse than just about anything I've ever ingested and has a logo that could easily spell "Venon" due to a poorly chosen design.
Of course the most obvious bad decision was made when they chose to essentially name their new drink "Poison."
And now on to the tasting...
