I forgot how much having a day job rearranges your entire life. I know, I’m punching me in the ear, too. Nevertheless: bringing lunch to work! Right now it’s fun, in a few days it’ll be getting old and by this time next month I’ll be eating nothing but pizza-by-the-slice and street meat.
In the meantime, I’m desperately addicted to this:
The short version is: it’s spicy juice. The longer version is that they are sweetened, lightly flavored beverages with a smidgen of capsaicin in them, so they have a little bit of a burn. The weirdest part is that my Crohn’s disease is not bothered in the least by it, and in fact the opposite. I’ve been feeling pretty good lately, and the niacin-like rush of the capsaicin is no joke.
My only grief about the product is that I feel it could do with a little less sugar – while they don’t taste overly sugary, 40g per bottle is pretty much the upper limit of what I am comfortable consuming in a beverage and are what’s keeping me to one or two a week as a treat. I guess I’m that nutbag asking them to make a sugar-free version, but there it is: some of us can’t digest sugar well and have to divvy up our sugar intake between the things we really can’t live without, like marshmallow milkshakes and bowls of Franken Berry for dinner.November 17th, 2011 | Food Rant, Obsessed
