Orginal Ginseng UP! - I'm scared, hold me.

We're still in the islands, and this time I'm afraid. In front of me sits a bottle of Ginseng UP, that's not what frightens me. What frightens me is what is written on the label. "Ginseng UP. Taste for the Ginseng Connoisseur. No Artificial Ingredients Added.!" Now I don't consider myself a Ginseng Connoisseur by any means, in fact the fact that the only graphic on the bottle is a Ginseng root makes me wary. Add to the fact that it looks like dirt is floating in the bottle, and you have some more of my fear. Hey at least there is some honey in here. Time to stop being a baby, drinky drinky!

I can tell you right now I'm not finishing this. That honey I spoke of earlier, yeah it's mutated into some sort of sickly sweet monstrosity. While this does have some nutritional value (80% of the Vitamin C you need in a day) and I do indeed like some teas with Ginseng... this is way too Ginsengy for me. Now don't get me wrong, I can tell why someone might like this. My initial taste is very good, very clean, but that is quickly replaced with that sickly sweetness that turns my mouth downward. The fact that the bottle is clear, and showing off the urine like color just reinforces my opinion that my taste buds just aren't made for this drink. The labeling seems very medical, and unfriendly. Now with well over half a bottle left, I bid Ginseng UP ado. Best of luck.

Verdict: Buyer Beware!
