Old Orchard "Watermelon Cucumber Lemonade"
Brand: Old Orchard
Item: Watermelon Cucumber Lemonade
Price: $1.66 at my local Hy-Vee
Let me be the first one to say, I did not know what to expect with this drink. I saw it on the shelf about a month ago and made fun of it. Then I got to wondering, why not?
Sooo, I ended up buying it about a week ago. And then I tried it. And something very weird happened.
I liked it.
I don't like cucumbers because I feel like the flavor is too strong for me. I don't like watermelon because it's messy. This juice, oddly enough, somehow creates a delicious balance between the two flavors. This is very much a summery drink, something you might serve at a barbecue or pool party just because.
When I first opened the container, the drink smells like straight cucumber. The flavor is also incredibly strong towards cucumber but the watermelon is just strong enough to add a very fresh kick. There's also a lemony flavor (as there should be; it is lemonade). This drink is very odd in the sense that it has three very distinct flavors that do go with each other. The citrus from the lemon adds a kick and draws from the otherwise overwhelming flavor of the cucumber. The watermelon adds some sweetness.

If you like the taste of cucumbers but want something a little sweeter, this is definitely a juice to go with. If anything, it's just fun to try with your friends and see what happens. I tried it with my family; my sister ended up not liking it, but my dad and I enjoyed it!
Let me know what you thought! Would you try this? Does it sound absolutely disgusting to you? What other weird drinks have you seen/tried?
