Arizona Half and Half

Yes, I know that the name actually includes the name of the terribly confused looking golfer that is emblazoned across the can, but...I'm really not concerned with whatever multi-million dollar athlete is "involved" (i.e. he had someone write a check) in the production of this beverage.

Anyway, personal disputes aside, this is one of the more interesting beverages that I've found lately. I typically don't buy bottled or canned iced teas because they are vile, but this caught my interest. It's half tea and half lemonade. It seems interesting enough in's really not that great. It's pretty much what you would expect: nasty factory tea mixed with nasty factory lemonade. The chemical flavor of the tea still prevails, despite the constant acidic assaults from the lemonade, and overall the drink is just sort of a train wreck. It's not terrible, and I only paid a dollar for it, so all things considered, it's really not that bad. But I do think that there is a limit to how many things you can cram into one liquid, and this is a good example of a beverage that just has way too much going on. 

Also, 23 ounces is a humongous serving size for any beverage. Finishing my drink should not be a chore.

Verdict: Interesting and maybe worth a try sometime, but not recommended.
