Go For the Goal'd
(This was written a while back and updated to celebrate the ending of Le Coupe du Monde. Throughout the year Plainpalais (the big diamond in the photo below) is host to many events, several circuses, antique fairs, luna parks and more. For over a month now it has been full of honking cheering yobs twice daily for the games. I am all for team spirit, but I am even more for being able to sleep at a decent hour. So here's to getting my backyard back.
Better than a head-butt to the chest? That is the question we hope to answer with today's tasting. Can YOU taste the Victory? Oh yes, I can. And it tastes like yellow dye #5. Europe has a bad case of football, I mean soccer, let's just call it the World Cup fever. And the Evil Empires aren't afraid to cash in on it with limited edition offers (much like Super Bowl commercials, long awaited but do they really pay off?) Yes, MacDo, I am calling you out on your burger Francaise!
Sqyd, the Duct Tape Goddess and I felt obliged to try it out and report to you, good readers. Not much to say. It's rather 'yellow' flavored, much like many popsicles are 'red' flavored, and fizzy. No hint of cola, like a slightly older beer swilling sports obsessed sibling to the unforgettable Crystal Pepsi brought out back in 1993. You remember Crystal Pepsi, right? RIGHT?! However, you can certainly see by the golden plastic container that this drink is for 'Winners' only. You want to be a winner, don't you???
Survey says: Like a penalty kick ricocheting off the top of the goal, this drink misses it's mark. Thank goodness for limited editions (like Cappuccino Pepsi and Holiday Spice Pepsi, shudder.)
