Not very often do I go on a tirade. Well, ok….sometimes I do. Today is one of those days.
Remember back when you were a little kid? The world was full of wonder, magic was real and nobody was tougher than your Dad.
Remember going through comic books and seeing the ads that promised never ending fun – Boxes of Army men, 12' Weather Balloons, Charles Atlas. It all seemed so real.
I sure do.
I also remember the disappointment of learning they were brine shrimp, that they didn’t really have crown heads and smile, and that the only thing they were good for was to feed Dad’s fish. What a waste.
Flash forward to Debi and I going to Vegas a few years ago. The hotel we stayed at had a great Bloody Mary bar, that she brought me drinks out of. She went to great lengths to find the perfect one for me, you could put together any imaginable combination, and the one I liked best was made with Wasabi. I love my wife.
Now, as many of you know….I like flavors –Hops, Peat, Burn – they all are what I strive for. From drinking Prairie Fires with Glenn way back in the 80s to laying on the spicy when I go for Chinese. That is the way I roll.
Flash forward to present day (just past the good Bloody Mary bar at the Rams game), and this review.
I really don’t know where to go with this review other than to say this product sucked. I’m again taken back to my childhood, when Wendy’s ran the “Where's the Beef?” commercial.
Where’s the Wasabi?
The company’s own website says “a snap of real Japanese Wasabi”, but I didn’t get it. I honestly thought I was drinking stale V8. Actually, stale V8 tastes better.
A thick mess that lacked any flavor or “Zing”, I really thought my palette was off.
I gave James a sip (of just the mix, no alcohol added) and he said “Tastes like weak Tomato Juice”. When an 9 year old thinks your mix is weak….its time for ModMix to think of a new profession.
I won’t go into much more here. I won’t divulge the Vodka I was using, as I don’t want to sully their name or associate it here.
I will admit that I tried mixing two separate drinks, and both were horrible….so much so that I poured the 2nd out and didn’t finish it. For people that know me….they know that is a testament in it’s own right.
I could rip this product apart on so many levels, but I won’t….because that would require me to drink more of it. Instead, suffice it to say – Weakest “Spicy” Mixer ever, ZERO Stars and currently the leading candidate for Worst Product of the Year.
