I’m sleepy so let’s get this over with. Aaron like lime soda, blah, blah, blah. There aren’t many lime sodas on the market, yada, yada, yada. Hopefully Crush Lime is delicious, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice. What I obviously have in front of me is a can of Crush Lime. This was given to us by Dan Dub who I believe hated it. Mike has since tried it and apparently loves the stuff. I’ve been over thinking the order of drinks to review in my fridge and in a tired stupor picked this one out because it’d be the easiest to photograph (I could either photograph and then review it, or I could review it and then photograph). Any who, this is a can of lime flavored soda which is made by Crush. I like Crush Orange so I might as well give this one a shot as well. Time to crack’er open.
Smells D-Lishus! The first thing I thought of when I opened the can was candy. This could very well be liquid lime candy. I suppose most soda is liquid candy when you think about it but I don’t really want to think about it at the time. I just want to drink this, so I shall.
Well the initial taste is much weaker than I thought it would be. The smell psyches you out, making you think you’re going to enjoy liquid lime candy when in fact you’re just drinking an average lime soda. There isn’t a whole lot of fizz to Crush Lime, or Lime Crush as I’m sure everyone else in the world calls it. I have no qualms with there being little fizz to this drink. If it were any fizzier then the already muted lime flavoring would be stuffed even further back onto the bookshelf much like Garfield Tips the Scales: His Eighth Book. The cat has like 50 something books and if you planned on collecting them as a kid you probably gave up around book 30 like I did. To this day I’ll be going through my bookshelf and randomly find a Garfield book stuffed amongst my other bizarre reading material. I found a Hi-lights magazine in there from 1987. Guess what? Goofus is still not ready for “big boy” scissors and Gallant will end up housing over 60 cats by the age of 42… most of them imaginary. You know why I ranted just then? I’ll tell you, because Crush Lime is boring. This is a generic flavored lime beverage with no life to it. This is something that you’d find when you need to scavenge for food right before a hurricane hits. “I can’t believe I didn’t do this earlier. Why isn’t there any bottled water left?! Beef Jerky? Yeah that’s a meat, we can eat that. A gallon of sweet tea… sure the kids like sweet tea. Generic lemon cookies? Those go great with sweet tea! What’s this? Lime Crush? I didn’t even know they made… ah heck I might as well grab it.” You take it home and guzzle it down with your beef jerky and generic lemon cookies. Never once do you think that it’s great or that it’s horrible. You just drink it because it’s there. If you like lime but don’t have access to Jarritos Lime or Stewarts Key Lime Soda, then I guess this would be ok. Just know that you’re missing out on the superior product.
Verdict – Buy a Bottle
Twist was oddly attracted to this can.
