Cruiser Free-Verdict (well, half)

Hmmm what to say?
I finally managed to find them for sale at Dan Murphy's. First off I only bought two. One in Pine Melon (left) and one Orange Mango. There is also a Mixed Berry Flavour, but I just thought it had too much potential to be vile, so I skipped it.
I only bought one in each of my two flavours, (even though they cost the earth when you do it like that, its such a rip off) because I couldn't face the thought though of them being horrid and being stuck with another three, so obviously I went in with high hopes.
So I went with Pine Melon first up. We had friends round, and we all clinked our (bottles) "cheers"! One sip- YUK.
The best way I can describe the flavour is "Midori Illusion with a chaser of Splenda"
EW! They fool you by making them pink, but they honestly taste like they should be green like Midori. Too sweet, and where was the Pine!?

Overall I shoved it down my throat, but there will be no repeat performance I'm afraid. Our friends had been kind enough to bring Guava with them, and I was so afraid of the Orange Mango I stuck to Guava for the rest of the evening.
Thumbs down I'm afraid...

2 kindred spirits ~ This bugs them too!:

I'm tainting you with my skepticism. I've given up now and just drink bacardi with diet coke for my low fat drinks.

What a disappointment that they didn't taste better! So much potential. Though I fess that I would have gone mixed berry over melon pine. Have you tried the other yet?

@ K
~Hahaha nah its ok. I think I may simply give up on "calorie counting" whilst drinking at all.
I'm not a bacardi drinker, but I occassionally have Southern Comfort and diet coke, and we recently bought Sprite Zero to keep at home for mixing with Raspberry Vodka. Yum.
