Why marketing vexes me
When I think of a strawberry, many words come to mind...

Delicious.
Sweet.
Fresh.
Sexy. (Yes, sexy.)
(Sometimes even) Pie.

The absolute last word I would associate with a strawberry is FIERCE. Unless someone can show me that Gatorade is hunting wild, carnivorous strawberries on the plains of the Serengeti, I have to say that I'm going to remain doubtful.

UPDATE: Holy crap! Lions!

Fierce, well no.

Not unless they were trying to market Lindenfraise anyway. Lindenfriase is a cheap and nasty champagne cut with an equally cheap artificial stawberry liquer.

The taste is fierce, foul and regrettable. So is the hangover (assuming more than one sip is managed).

It sounds like it wants to be a lambic, but somewhere it went horribly, horribly wrong.

You know, I noticed this when I took a swig of Scott's "Fierce" and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't that fierce.

(I'm sending you that bread recipe tonight. I think you will find it extremely user friendly.)

Tasty, maybe?

This weekend, I got hold of a Spanish-labeled bottle that boasted CITRICO GIGANTE. I mean, it sounds very sexy and all, but...

Cool. I'll keep an eye out for it.

I don't know that I would go as far as Tasty, it is still Gatoraide. Maybe Less Offensive?

So, is it IN you?

Yes, I'm going to hell.
