I am not a fan of a mojito or any bourbon drinks normally and I can almost never find a canned cocktail that I actually enjoy. Troop changed that. Definitely would recommend it over ice and in a glass and not straight out of the can for the best flavor experience. The cans are smaller than an avg 12oz can so its great to have around and bring as a small item to a gathering or park afternoon.
Very good Kombucha made locally in BK. Tasted at an event in the summer of 2021 and have proceeded to buy other flavors as they've expanded. The bottle is gorgeous and shipping was almost the next day for the NYC area. Recommend as a great NA product to bring as a gift for a friend/host.
I've tried Swoon mixers, simple syrup ( when it was in bottle form) and their canned beverages. Their mixers are great to have around the house, each bottle has 2-3 easy recipes to mix with your liqueur of choice and they are VERY tasty. This is truly the best and only lemonade I am willing to drink. Their more recent innovations of ginger and peach flavor are spectacular and they feel fresh and not too sweet. Given the sweetness comes from monk fruit and this is safe for diabetics it is truly a win and favorite product of mine all year long.
Packaging has sometimes arrived damaged and a few cans have been beaten up, but nothing that impacts flavor.
One of the best and most potent lemon flavored products on the market. The lemon tastes like it were freshly squeezed and it is full of punch on the lemon side. A little expensive but worth it for the flavor.
I loved this beverage! I prefer the Calamansi Lime flavor but both options are great! This beverage is so smooth for an agave spirit, I was halfway through my second one when a friend mentioned it was alcoholic. This is a great choice for something fresh, light and super flavorful instead of the generic cocktail beer or wine option.
Would love to know where it can be purchased in NYC!
De La Calle!
I tried the Moderno flavor and normally love all different types of fermented drinks but this one was sadly not for me. It was very fizzy, and the pineapple flavor was much stronger than I expected. Realizing I might not like pineapple beverages that much. My partner shared with me and they really enjoyed it and didn't notice the strong pineapple notes. I would recommend it to someone who likes fermented beverages and is looking for something different to try to pair with foods and likes fruiter / strong flavors.
I really enjoyed the Kin canned drink, Lightwave. With the lightwave flavor, I thought this was a splendid, calming beverage where I truly can feel the calming effect after drinking. It can be a little milky on the tongue at first, but the herbal and floral notes come through after. This has a very calming effect on the stomach and for me, helped to digest food, calm nerves or just supplement a coffee if I wanted something else in the afternoon. I did not enjoy the other flavor of the canned product near as much. I have not tried the made-to-mix beverages by themselves or with alcohol.
I have only tried it once, so will speak only to the initial taste of the product and not prolonged use. My friends are big fans of Athletic greens but unfortunately, I did not quite grasp the hype upon trying. The flavor was okay, very earthly like other reviews have said. I personally like earthy flavors a lot, but this just felt chalky and very much a bleh flavor upon just mixing with water. I'm sure would be much more elevated if used in more interesting ways than how I was served by a friend. I did not notice a huge energy boost after drinking that was a large noticeable difference.
I LOVE OMSOM! I am not a professional chef, but consider myself a lover of cooking as I live in NYC and cook almost every single night. I am normally not one to use any of the meal plan or pre-cook it for you subscription plans you see all over the internet so trying out these pre-made sauce packets I was excited but hesitant. THEY BLEW ME AWAY! I bought the trio when they were selling at a pop-up grocer and the marketing, branding, packaging to flavor were truly impeccable. Also, the founders have an amazing mission and their social channels is one of the best out there telling the brand's story in an entertaining and educational way for cooking content. 15/10
Honestly, was very surprised I liked this brand. I have heard about it for years but never took the plunge as $35 can be a lot to spend on an individual piece of underwear. However, I instantly loved mine once they arrived. I ordered the full coverage high waist pair and it's so comfortable for sleeping, with or without a period that I will absolutely consider buying more. Only reason for 4/5 stars and not 5/5 is that I wish I felt more comfortable machine washing but understand hand wash is best to maintain quality.
