Even though I just reviewed a cream soda, it's been a long time since I reviewed one of Sprecher's soda (December of last year). A&W's cream soda was awesome, but that's made by a big corporation. Surely a "gourmet soda" using all natural ingredients will be even better, right.....?

Rockstar is the Pepsi to Red Bull's Coke. A lot of people prefer this brand, actually. To me, they all taste pretty much the same. Since I reviewed Red Bull's "Total Zero" a few days ago I got a lot of requests to review this one as an almost side-by-side comparison. I wasn't too crazy about the "Total Zero" - so how would Rockstar's zero sugar/zero carb offering stack up?

This is probably one of the most requested drinks for me to review. It's basically sugar free Red Bull with Splenda added to it. It's called "Total Zero" because there's no sugar and no carbs - but is there anything worth tasting? Let's see.....

The last soda from the promotional package sent to me by http://www.wowgiftboxes.com I don't think I've seen A&W Cream Soda in my local stores. Maybe it's there, but I don't go down the soda aisle at the market that often. What's also interesting is that this just says "cream soda" and every other instance of the product calls it "Sparkling Vanilla Cream Soda." Is this something new?

Someone requested I chug this one. I'm not sure why because I've never done a video of me chugging anything else. But since I had the time I figured I'd give this Monster that's a whopping 50% juice a try. I think there's only one other Monster product that I haven't tried yet.

Egads! A DIET soda review?! Yup, for the first time ever I'm breaking my own rule of no diet sodas, due to the fact this one came as part of a promotional (i.e. free) gift basket. So I'd like to extend the senders at http://www.wowgiftboxes.com a thank you by reviewing every soda that came in the A&W gift box they sent me.

You guys seem to love the energy drink reviews (although I really have no idea why), so I decided to keep the ball rolling and review yet another Monster "Rehab" series. This time it's the "Rojo Tea" which is made with cranberries and some weird tea I've never heard of. I loved the tea & lemonade and the green tea one was pretty good, too. How would this one compare?

After a looooooooong hiatus, "Chad'z Energy Drink Reviews" are back! Well, maybe not permanently but at least for now. I've received a LOT of requests to review more of the "Monster Rehab" line, so I picked up a can of this while waiting in line at Wal-Mart. I really liked the tea & lemonade flavor, but I've never been a big fan of anything with green tea in it. Which way would this one go?

Remember when I used to review cider? Yeah, me neither. But then I saw this at my beer store and was immediately reminded, so I bought it and reviewed it. This is actually made by Samuel Adams (well, the Boston Beer Company to be exact). Would they be able to make a decent cider? Watch and find out.

My first ever re-review of an energy drink AND my first ever Skype collab review of a non-beer beverage. Simon of http://youtube.com/RealAleGuide joins me from Wales to try his first ever review of an energy drink. He can't get NOS (my favorite energy drink) in Wales, so I sent him a can in a package of beers I sent to him shortly after New Years. You know I love NOS, but how would Simon react to it?

Finally! A new brand of ciders on this show. Crispin makes a very wide range of ciders and from what I hear they're pretty good. I've never had them before so I decided to start with their "Brut" which has a weird tagline of "extra dry over ice." I didn't pour this over ice, but I did pour it in to a glass. Just how dry could it be, really?

See? I told you I might keep doing Cider reviews, and I am. I'm pretty partial to the Woodchuck Cidery since they're fairly close to me and every cider of theirs that I've had I've liked. The "802" is, as far as I can tell, their top-of-the-line or "grand cru" offering. Or maybe it's just another cider in their portfolio, I dunno. Anyways, enjoy watching it!

This is probably the LAST review of something other than a beer I'll ever review on this channel (well... I may keep doing cider reviews, we'll see). I used to drink SoBe all the time back in college and my active duty Navy days but I literally haven't had one in years (those LifeWaters don't count). Their Green Tea drink is probably one of their most famous, so I thought why not go out with this product?

Sprecher is actually a craft beer brewery out of Wisconsin, but we only get their craft sodas here in New York (but not their beers, isn't that weird?). Anyway it's been a while since I reviewed a truly "craft soda" and if this is the last episode of my soda reviews I'd like to go out reviewing a soda made by beer guys!

Of the seven cider reviews I've posted to date, four of them have been from Woodchuck - do you think that speaks highly of this brand? Anyway, this is their winter seasonal and I coulda swore I had reviewed this back in January or February, but I guess that was the spring seasonal. I tend to really like this cidery, so let's see what their winter seasonal is all about....

As we wind down the non-beer beverage reviews I go back to my roots, so to speak, with the Sobe Lifewater series. This really caught my eye because of the flavors involved - strawberry and apricot. Sounds like a tasty combination. Would it be...?

Seems like it's been forever since I reviewed an obscure energy drink - which was the original intent of this show anyway. I found this oddly-named drink in the Asian food aisle at the supermarket. Last time I found one there it tasted like jelly beans - would this one?
Dec 5, 2011
It seems like I keep forgetting that I do this show, lol. I haven't reviewed anything in the Jeremiah Weed brand in many many months, so I thought I should give them another try (heck, they've only got three products anyway). I remember really like the Twisted Tea so I was hoping this "Roadhouse Tea" would be as good. Was it? Watch and find out.

I first saw this brand of energy drink at the $1 store, then it started showing up at Walmart so I thought I'd pick one up because I haven't done a no-name-brand energy drink review in a very long time. More often than not these things tend to be just Red Bull or Rockstar clones - would this be one?
