Wadda Moron

Sigh... Feel free to call me a moron. I just paid $1.29 for an eight ounce bottle of Wadda Blast, which is half juice, half filtered water with 10% of a daily allowance of a couple of vitamins and a spill proof sippy top. A lovely young woman was stocking this new product on the shelves at my wonderful local grocery store (shout out to the folks at Poricelli's Foodmart.)

I thought "I'd like to support this small local company and their new product. My girls drink juice. I like vitamins. This would be convenient for school and a nice cross between plain water and sugary juice." So I bought two bottles to try.

I put the bottle on the table at breakfast. Miss G took one look and said "no." So I gave the bottle to Peanut. Poor kid picked it up, put it to her mouth and tried to drink it. I didn't see any swallowing going on. I fed her breakfast and gave her the Wadda Blast bottle again. Nothing.

Finally I tried it myself. It is indeed watered down juice and tastes quite good. However, you need to be able to suck a golf ball through a garden hose to get the stuff. That sippy top works a little too well for my girls. Porn stars would have trouble extracting the juice from that little bottle.

I'll go back to my Rubbermaid reusable cups with the straw that doesn't cause a hernia as you attempt a drink.

Wadda dummy.

Well, what's that about? The juice company taunts poor unsuspecting kids with the promise of juice, but they just can't get to it!

Sucks, doesn't it? I swear G broke blood vessel in her eye trying to drink the stuff tonight. Dumb idea. Dumb mom for buying it. Someone warn Trish for future reference.....

LOL at the porn star reference!

Happy New Year!

Not the porn stars I know. Many of them train with Wadda Blast during their off hours. Personally, I like to loiter near the upright cooler section of my local grocer, to watch for women who purchase this miracle product.

Anon -- I assume they only buy the Cherry flavor?

Too funny! I'll be sure to avoid the Wadda Blast if I see it. My kids have enough drinking problems as it is. Hutton is playing with a full cup of ice right now. At least water doesn't stain, right?
