After about 2 years of watching every other white woman rave about La Croix, I finally decided to take the leap. The excitement washed over me as I stood in the beverages aisle at Target, contemplating which of the dozens of flavors to try.
I was torn between coconut and orange. I settled on orange, because 1) who does not like orange? and 2) I think I’ll try coconut water as my next trendy drink.
I waited until Monday, my work-from-home day. I positioned the can next to my Moleskine notbook, which was on top of my classic white desk. I coaxed my hair into beachy waves to maximize the experience. I opened the can, took a sip and …
It tasted like someone left a can of Orange Crush outside for a year and a half. This is the amazing fresh taste that all the Internet Ladies are addicted to? I guess they never had the pleasure of being a Froot Loops kid, because those of us who are brought up on the delicious taste of Froot are doomed to be less than satisfied with natural flavoring.
On to the next trendy thing.
