The Laidback Gourmet: Mio berry pomegranate

Hoi Dhlee, and welcome to the Laidback Gourmet where good taste has a double meaning. I’m looking forward to reviewing this one so let’s jump right into it!

Edlock Hoimes:
“I say, dear fellow, but are you quite feeling ok? “

Oh hi, Edlock, you’re just in time to help me review this new drink.

“I don’t need my magnifying glass to deduce that that’s clearly just a plain glass of water. You do realize that water has been around for over a billion years right?” “

Well, yes, water has been around for over a billion years, or if your insane, 6000 years, but water is simply the delivery device for our review today. Today we’re looking at the newest water flavoring method, Mio. Mio’s berry pomegranate to be exact.

While packets of flavoring mix to add to your personal water bottles have become all the rage, Mio’s gimmick is it’s not a dry mix but instead a liquid.

“While I don’t see how one can improve on the perfection of water, I can see the benefits of a liquid delivery system as opposed to a powdered one as liquids tend ot integrate into liquids better than solids. However, the real test of would be the taste, would it not?”

Uh, yes, that’s usually the most important thing when it comes to food, the taste. So let’s add it to water and see what he got.

What an artistic picture… I wonder if should send that to one of those photo contests?

“Stay focus dear boy, we have a job to do…”

Yea yea, let’s try this.


This is actually really good. Seriously, I’m impressed. I tend to enjoy the water flavoring packets, but other than Target’s Cherry Limeade this is the best one I’ve had yet. I gotta give this one a solid 9/10 and I can’t wait to try some of the other flavors. One caveat though, they claim this thing makes 24 glasses of flavored water. I added a good squirt to this water to start with, but found it terribly weak and needed to add a second squirt. I can’t imagine this making more than 12 or so glasses of decently flavored drink. Still, I’m happy with this one. Any thoughts Edlock?”

“Well I’d love to, but you only brought out one glass. Well, don’t worry about it my good chap, I must be off anyway, I’m hot on the trail of this horrible bloke who completely cut off the whole left side of this poor woman’s body.”

Damn! I hope you get him and bring him to justice, that’s really terrible!”

“Oh don’t worry, she’s all right. Well, off I go, the game is a foot!”

Ugh… ok then. Good luck with the case. Anyway, that concludes another edition of the Laidback Gourmet. Thank you, as always, for reading, and please remember that you can always reach me at Until next time, this is Ed DiFolco, your Laidback Gourmet apologizing for such a long build up to such a bad pun. Eh, who am I kidding, I regret nothing!
