I gave up drinking softdrinks more than 10 years ago, but think I’ve stumbled upon an exception. It’s The Husband’s fault again for introducing me to another saccharine treat. Well, it has lots of sugar that’s for sure. The downside that it’s not the healthy kind 🙁 I can’t help it. I’m hooked!
I’ve tried malt beverages back home in the Philippines. It is actually a dear part of my teendom. When we were not yet allowed to drink beer, Cali Shandy (a local malt beverage), was the next best thing.
So The Husband played the nostalgia card and told me to try out Barbican, a malt beverage brand here. He even took the initiative of stocking up on Barbican. I guess he had an inkling I would like it….
And I did! These malt beverages are quite addicting! I practically drink at least one bottle a day! So good that it’s just so bad…All that processed sugar!
The cool thing is malt beverages come in a lot of flavors! The Husband bought me Barbican in Apple, Pineapple and Lemon. Yum! And there are other brands aside from Barbican, like Moussy…
and Budweiser. I couldn’t believe Budweiser actually had a non-alcoholic version. Hahahaha!
I bet there are a lot more malt beverage brands AND so many flavors out there. I’d love to try ALL flavors. But Malt beverages are still classified as softdrinks right? This means I’m back to drinking softdrinks already 🙁
But the fizz just helps quell my summer thirst…I think this is one thing I am not willing to give up anytime soon.
