NEW Diet Coke Flavors: BLOOD ORANGE, MANGO, CHERRY & GINGER LIME!



Diet Coke has gotten an upgrade with four new exciting flavors and a new can design. We found these drinks at a 7-Eleven and tried 'em all out just for you!



ZESTY BLOOD ORANGE

The first thing we noticed when cracking open a can of Zesty Blood Orange Diet Coke is that it smells a lot like a Crush Orange Soda. This cola has a pleasant, mellow orange candy flavor throughout and we also picked up a super slight Creamsicle aftertaste. We really liked this one!



GINGER LIME

This is the Arnold Palmer of the group because Ginger Lime Diet Coke tastes like half ginger ale mixed with half Diet Coke, all with a lime candy aftertaste. Of the four new flavors, this one is the most subtle and least exciting. We still enjoyed it though.



FEISTY CHERRY

Feisty Cherry Diet Coke smells like a classic cherry cola right off the bat. The flavor is "feisty" indeed as each sip comes with a pleasant peppery bite that lingers in the back of the throat. While this new variety is probably the least creative, the boldness of the wild cherry flavor is surprising and thoroughly enjoyable.



TWISTED MANGO

Twisted Mango Diet Coke really smells like a juicy, sweet mango upon first crack. The smooth mango flavor is impressive and boldly shines through with each sip. It reminds us a lot of the mango flavor of Japanese fruit candy Hi-Chew. Of all the new varieties, this is the most unique and exciting.



ORIGINAL

Plain Diet Coke gets a revamped bullet can design as well, but the iconic flavor remains intact. It's the brilliant subtlety of cola flavor that still makes this our favorite version of DC. We predict classic Diet Coke will remain the top selling variety of this new repackaging.



SNAX TIP!
Want to impress your guests with something refreshingly light and unique? Try serving them Fruit Punch Diet Coke!

In a chilled pitcher combine equal parts Zesty Blood Orange Diet Coke, Twisted Mango Diet Coke, Feisty Cherry Diet Coke and Ginger Lime Diet Coke. Serve the bubbly elixir over ice with your favorite bar spirit!

Taco Bell Nacho Fries BellGrande: SNACK PARTY SUPREME!


Taco Bell's Nacho Fries have already taken the fast food world by storm, and now Taco Bell is firing up the party with NEW Nacho Fries BellGrande!

The fries by themselves are super tasty with a bold seasoning and battered, crisp texture. Aside from salt, we picked up hints of paprika, onion and sugar, which all tasted great when paired with hot Nacho Cheese Sauce.

For the BellGrande, Taco Bell amps up the flavor by adding generous portions of seasoned ground beef, cool reduced-fat sour cream and fresh diced tomato. We were pretty tripped out (in a good way) by the combination of flavors and textures and really savored the experience. We tried the Nacho Fries BellGrande with Taco Bell's Mild, Hot, Fire and Diablo sauces and found that each one added a different, complementary flavor (classic Mild being our fav).

We give two big finger-licking thumbs up to this new treat from Taco Bell!

Tic Tac Count's Combo: A VAMPIRE IN WINTER!


Halloween surplus or strange new mix? We're hoping the latter. We spotted this wacky assortment at a CVS earlier this month and we're intrigued to say the least. Apparently Count Dracula's favorite flavors of Tic Tac are orange and grape. And we must say that he has great taste because these are our favorite Tic Tac flavors as well!

McDonald's Classic Chicken Sandwich: NEW $3 MENU ITEM!


As part of their current $1 $2 $3 Dollar Menu, McDonald's has released the NEW Classic Chicken Sandwich. This $3 sammy pairs a crispy chicken filet with pickle chips and sweet and tangy Signature Sauce all inside of a toasted, soft regular bun. The Classic Chicken Sandwich sets itself apart from it's cheaper $1 cousin, the highly processed McChicken, by using an all white meat chicken breast. We thought the flavors of this new item were subtle and indeed "classic" with the tempting, peppery fried chicken really shining through as the star of the sandwich. While not as tasty as their now retired and very similarly dressed Southern Style Crispy Chicken Sandwich, this new product is simply delicious.
