Kinako and Black Sesame Milk Latte

Brand: Nittoh Found at: Bokkusu   For today’s first world problem: I miss drinks that come in sachets. Yes, in the midst of a global pandemic in which hospitals are overrun, jobs are disappearing, and everyone is more alone than ever, I am still able to find something banal to whine about. You’re welcome world.... Continue Reading →

Iron Bru Pastilles

Brand: Buchannan’s Cost: £1.25 Found at: Tesco   Whoever said that whiskey is the national drink of Scotland has clearly never been to Scotland. Sure, I see my fair share of whiskey about, but it is nothing compared to Iron Bru. Every shop, every food truck, every pile of trash on the side of the... Continue Reading →

Super Smoothie Cacao & Cherry

Brand: Innocent Cost: £1 Found at: Tesco I'm low-key shook. Maybe it's because I'm a grumpy old curmudgeon who is suspicious of everything, but I was certain that this would disappoint. Anything healthy that even implies chocolate and I am out. It's either not healthy or not chocolate and either way, I'm not buying it.... Continue Reading →

Apple, Mandarin, and Carrot Juice

Found at: ICA   This juice was the culmination of perhaps one of the most Swedish days that I have ever had. It started with a Volvo trip around Skoghall, collecting various friends in various states of asleep-at-noon. What followed was a 30°F (0°C) barbeque at a local park, a hike through the woods (complete... Continue Reading →

Bolt from the Blue

Brand: Innocent Cost: £1 (with £3 lunch deal) Found at: Tesco This is a tasty juice! Vaguely tropical, vaguely familiar and bright blue. (I'm a child of the Heinz EZ Squirt era - brightly, artificially colored food is a guaranteed way to get my money.) It’s sweet and tasty, but contrary to Innocent's health-conscious image,...

Julmust

Brand: Apotekarnes Cost: 14 KR Found at: Coop   It's a long time coming, but I’ve finally gotten what’s coming to me.   For years, I have delighted in watching non-Americans try root beer: gleeful in their reactions of disgust and horror. I was raised on the stuff, so I can drink it like water,... Continue Reading →

Strawberry Rhubarb Carbonated Water

Brand: Pirrig Cost: 10.95KR Found at: Coop I am not someone who should be giving advice. My life is a collection of classic blunders based on fundamentally flawed logic. That being said, if forced against my better judgement to give advice, I would give the following:   Do not go running.   If you do... Continue Reading →

Oatly Oat Drink- Deluxe

Brand: Oatly Cost: 28KR Found at: Coop   My first week living on my own, I went out and did a massive food shop. The grocery store was not nearby, I didn’t have a car, and I didn’t know the bus routes, so I stumbled home under the weight of all my groceries, sweating and... Continue Reading →

Coca-Cola Lemon and Vitamin

Brand: Coca-Cola Cost: 129 yen Found at: 7-11   Putting vitamins in coke-a-cola is like putting protein in a potato chip. It’s a nice idea, certainly, but I did not buy this soda for my health. I bought this soda because I had a long day and I needed to mainline some sugar and caffeine.... Continue Reading →
