Score: 6/10

I remember Apple Jacks being a much better cereal when I was a kid. After eating some recently, I can’t say that this cereal is all that great. It’s just some average, generic cereal. I’m trying to think of something unique about this cereal which would make a consumer purchase it, but I can’t think of anything. Despite it’s packaging, there’s just nothing special about this cereal. It just tastes… flat. At least it’s not obscenely sweet, like Golden Crisp.

A small tip for anyone eating this brand of cereal: let it sit in the milk for like thirty seconds. Otherwise, this stuff can destroy your gums and the roof of your mouth. For a donut shaped cereal, this stuff is sharp.

Soft Drink Review: Qoo, Apple Flavor

Qoo is a Coca-Cola owned brand of soft drinks that primarily targets the east and southeast Asian markets. I think it’s lightly carbonated, but I’m not sure.

I purchased a small bottle of apple flavored Qoo for around three dollars in New York City. It tasted more like an American apple flavored drink, not like apple juice though. It’s like Dave Chappelle said; it’s like “apple drink,” not apple juice. I did not expect it to have chunks of apple flavored jelly in it. I didn’t love that.

Overall, not bad but I wouldn’t buy it again.

What I liked about this drink is that it is a metal bottle. Aluminum I think. It shouts quality. As a drink, it’s just okay. Prepare yourself for apple flavored jellies within the apple drink. This isn’t a bad drink.
