3 Olives Loopy Vodka. *Sigh…here we go.
As I close my eyes and breathe in the rich scents of this “naturally” flavored Vodka, my free association leads me to images of Toucan Sam smashed out of his mind. I also see Charles Bukowski waking up and making himself breakfast.
First whiff gives off a strong smell of soggy Fruit Loops that have been sitting in milk for a long time, with the addition of quadruple distilled, English luxury neutral grain spirit.
Second whiff reveals citrus car air freshener and Pine Sol all purpose cleanser with just a hint of dryer sheet. Nuanced.
It really does taste like Fruit Loops, but which one? Fruity Confetti? Tropical Forest? Jungleberry Swirls? Melonberry Pink? I’d say Rainbow Forest for sure. Quite sweet and syrupy, perhaps somewhere between a flavored vodka and a liqueur, with the Pine Sol making a second cameo. Accompanying the essence of Fruit Loops is mixed pasteurized citrus, heavy on the lemon and grapefruit, along with something reminiscent of Purple Drank, Kool-Aid and SunnyD. Hmmm Kelloggs, Procter & Gamble and Kraft Foods, 3 of the largest consumer products makers all repped in one bottle of vodka? Sounds like a good time, tastes like a bad one.
