What the Heck did I Buy at the Grocery Store?!

On this episode of what the heck did I buy at the grocery store I am doing a taste test of drinks.  The first one I tried is aloe vera drink, mango flavored.  So I’ve tried aloe vera drink before, and it is an experience, I’ll tell you that.  But this being the first time I had gone grocery shopping in a month I decided I needed to try at least 2 new things, and something I never explore is different kinds of drinks (mostly cause I always drink water).  So this drink jumped out at me as I passed it in the aisle for 2 reasons; 1) the “original” flavor is VERY green 2) it was only a dollar.  With nothing to loose I gave it a go.  This is what I think.

It is a very refreshing drink, it leaves no weird aftertaste and actually refreshes you.  The mango flavor I have is very tasty and not very fake tasting like a lot of mango drinks can sometimes be.  In flavor, it is a good drink.  It is a thin liquid, somewhere between the consistency of water and juice. Heres the kicker, it has chunks.  Yes chunks.  I believe they are chunks of aloe, so they are kind of squishy, and although they are small, you definitely notice when you have them in your mouth.  It is something you have to get used to for sure.

So although it is kind of weird to drink something with chunks, I would recommend you give it a try.  I also hear it has great health benefits.  So next time your in the super market, pick up some aloe vera drink, its worth the experiment!!

 

Keep an eye out for what my other drink taste test was!!
