I Try It So You Don’t Have To: Hi*Ball Energy Grapefruit Lemmonex January 21, 2009 I Try It So You Don't Have To, Reviews 7 Comments I grabbed this drink on a complete whim. I was parched and exhausted and it seemed like a little gift from Manna.Â I was at Whole Foods so I expected it to be less synthetic than a Red Bull or one of those Rock Star drinks. I had very few expectations…which is probably a good thing. Smell: Nada. Texture/Appearance: Wet, cold, and bubbly. Taste: It tasted a bit flat and bitter. Also, it was grapefruit merely in name. There was nothing citrusy about it. Imagine drinking a bottle of Perrier that had been left open for two days–there you have it. I drank it, but I wasn’t impressed. Final verdict: There isn’t really much to say about this. I’d pass. I will go for a Red Bull if I need a shot of energy. *************************************************** Lemmonex writes almost daily about food, life, and her cripplingly bad habits daily at her blog, Culinary Couture.

If I want grapefruity flavor, I’ll grab a Fresca. Yes, Fresca. Not just for geriatrics! Reply JT January 21st, 2009 Was there a caffine boost? That has to count for someting. Reply LiLu January 21st, 2009 What’s that stuff at Starbucks? Izze? That stuff is basically this, only it ROCKS. It’s also like $19, but hey, you’re at Starbucks. What the hell do you want? Reply suicide_blond January 21st, 2009 id still be tempted…just cause…i like the name hi-ball…im a sucker like that… xoxo Reply Reggie January 21st, 2009 a grapefruit energy drink sounds like a winner, but i guess not. squirt mixed in red bull will have to do instead! Reply Lemmonex January 22nd, 2009 Sorry–should have said…I didn’t get much energy from this. I’ve been sick so sorry for the somewhat crappy review… Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
