Nite at night

nite alcopop

Nite is an alcopop drink (flavored alcoholic beverage) available at your friendly neighborhood hypermarket. It contains 4 different flavors in a nicely done package which features a strap for easy carrying. It’s made with “fruit wine” which probably means some fermentation occured at some point of the manufacturing process. The bottles weigh in at the standard 5% alcohol and I really like the presentation of the nite Special Pack4.

Strawberry Delight
This tastes like artificially flavored strawberries. I have been trying to open this for a long time (don’t ask) so the carbonation is minimal. It’s still good though…the strawberry taste is recognizably synthetic, but it’s not cloying. The lack of carbonation makes it easy to down it in a single swig. That’s a Good Thing (TM). πŸ˜‰

Eden Apple
One word – excessively acidic. Okay, that’s two words, but nite seriously needs to work on the flavor composition of this one. The acidity level is close to white wine (at least to my untrained palate) and white wine is the only type of alcohol I turn down coz it gives me gastric problems. This one made my ulcers act up…

Lemon Fizz
It tastes like a reasonable approximation of lemonade so that gets the thumbs up from me. The wonders of the modern synthetic flavor industry! πŸ˜‰ It’s the plainest one from the series, both packaging and taste wise, but it works anyway. It’s good! Nothing fancy, just a lemonade flavored alcopop…and it’s not acidic, despite being a lemon based drink. It tastes remarkably similar to Two Dogs.

Passionate Orange
The name sounds appealing enough but I’ve never really liked orange flavored drinks. It somehow never tastes like REAL orange juice and we all know what real OJ tastes like so that’s a high bar if there was one. nite Passionate Orange superseded my (admittedly low) expectations and came up with the closest approximation to orange I’ve ever had.

Nite: Make The Best of Yours!

  1. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  2. I’d be inclined to give green light with you here. Which is not something I usually do! I love reading a post that will make people think. Also, thanks for allowing me to speak my mind!
