Random Picture #130

Long-time readers may recall my review of the beverage "Cola Shock", a drink surely designed for those who are looking for a mixer rather than something one is meant to simply drink down on its own. However, it does have a 5% alcohol content so you could just get loaded on it alone if you can't stomach the taste of beer. I can't stomach the taste of either this vile concoction or any sort of brew. Because of my poor response to it (and my husband's as well, and he does drink alcohol), I'm surprised that it is still on the market. This is a display of this beverage in the present in a redesigned can with a quaint bit of English on it. Perhaps the fact that this is a "crispy" liquid is what gives it lasting appeal. 

For those who can't read it, the can says, "Cola shock is pungent drink with sharp taste. Enjoy the crispy texture.

While in Germany I tried cola and beer which wasn't too bad. But then I bought something called MixerX, it should have been renamed to MixerY. It was a mix of cola, beer and some mystery X ingredient. It was terrible.

I think real cola mixed with real beer would have to be better than this. It sounds like the MixerX was closer to Cola Shock!

Thanks for your comment!
