I have to apologize for the lack of posting this past few months. Life gets to everyone and I've been distracted here and there with different activities and such. But I do want to continue posting, I want everyone to know my love for food and sweets. Even if it's been harder than usual for me to eat those things.
I'd like to think I was cured from my eating disorder but the truth is, I'll never be 100% and I never have. I have to adjust to my disease and cope with it. Some days are harder than others but I'm managing. The positive thing right now is that I'm alive and trying my hardest everyday to combat this disorder.
In any event, I have some quiki reviews for you guys! While I haven't been able to take pictures of my test foods, I've been able to make some clear reviews. Here's the low down,
Let's start off with MiO: Blueberry Pomegranate.
When I heard of the choices I had in MiO flavors, I was excited. Fruit Punch, Peach Mango and Blueberry Pomegranate? Sounds good to me! But I did notice when I saw this at the store (Target), it was more expensive than I thought. On sale it was 3.50. Pricey! Not when I can get 'Market Pantry' drinks for 2 bucks. But I sucked up by penny-pinching ways and picked up a bottle to test. Blueberry sounded best, so I went with that one.
When I brought it home, I wasted no time in testing it! I grabbed a cup and filled it with water. I opened the package and sniffed. I have to admit, it smelled a bit...chemically. But I squirted twice into my cup anyhow. When I drank I have to admit it tasted quite a bit like Nyquil. Is it supposed to taste like that? Not to mention it tasted like WATERED DOWN Nyquil. Needless to say I gave it a third squirt and it made little difference. I wouldn't waste my money on another bottle of Blueberry Pomegranate or any other flavor.
Mc Donald's Frozen Strawberry Lemonade.
Terrible. I gagged for a second time. This was just awful, the worst lemonade I'd ever had. But I tried to look on the bright side, when I got home, I tried adding a bit of Sweet 'N Low. It did change the bitterness a tad but not enough for me. My Dad finished the rest off for me. To quote him he said, "Does this have vodka in it?"
All in all I have to give both of these items a 0 out of 5. The only thing good about the MiO was that it was sugar-free. The lemonade? It was pretty to look at! Not a great way to start off the month but I'll keep trying new foods and reporting on them!
