Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Shloer Posh Squash Confirmed sighting: Shloer Posh Squash
Posted: 11:51 Tue 07-Sep-2004. Price: 2.29/ 500ml bottle. Location: Sainsbury's, Bath. Sub-flavours: White Grape, Strawberry and Black Pepper (tested); White Grape, Blueberry and Rosehip. Nutritional unusualness: Contains pepper.
"Stuart Campbell" reports: After the vile, absurdly-priced fiasco of Sorelle (and the unpleasantness of Shloer's earlier Fruit Blend cordials), I was expecting disappointment from this latest release, and probably wouldn't have bothered if it wasn't on special at 1.49. Even so, it seems steep for a measly half-litre, but on inspecting the small print you find that this is meant to be diluted in a 1:10 ratio, compared to the 1:4 of Fruit Blend, so in Shloer terms it's an economy brand. It's also a lot nicer than the others - the blend of white grape (51%), strawberry (2%) and (frankly unnecessary) pepper works well, with a soft, full flavour tasting much more of strawberry than the proportions of ingredients would suggest. I wouldn't even inflict Sorelle or Fruit Blend on my drains, but this isn't bad at all.

...Something of a pleasant surprise for "Stuart Campbell" there, though I'd be interested to hear his views on the other one of their "two daringly different flavours". Anyway, in other liquid ludicrousness: US news site BevNet has the latest on fruity mid-carb vitamin-enriched 7 Up Plus Mixed Berry, though those currently scouring the UK for Grape Fanta may be more tempted by the prospect of grape-flavoured US "novelty drink" Mountain Dew Pitch Black.

Comment: WARNING! Mountain Dew will turn your poo green!:

Those of us who breathlessly follow the carbonated beverage industry (and really, who doesn't?) already know this: in August, Pepsi-Cola introduced Mountain Dew Pitch Black, a grape-esque soda marketed with, for some inexplicable reason, a Halloween theme. While the jury is out as to whether it's indeed frighteningly delicious, there is one thing that is for sure: many people have reported that Mountain Dew Pitch Black turns poop BRIGHT GREEN.

We need your help to find out for sure.

Drink two bottles today. Watch your poop color this weekend. And report back on Monday with what color you see. The goal: to establish a definitive correlation between Mountain Dew Pitch Black and green poop. We're interested to know how many people, upon ingesting 40 ounces of this limited-time soda, get a limited-time shift in fecal hue.

And if it's true... what? Class-action lawsuit? Wacky party trick? We're not sure. But either way, this is a historic experiment. Make sure you take part.

So tell your friends! Get your bottles! Report your poop! Visit http://www.poopreport.com/Dew today!
