Ah good, I was a little short on my RDA of gooey mold.
 
2012-11-15 09:07:10 AM
It's a little slime mold. You drink it all the time. It isn't gonna kill ya.

I once found something fleshy stuck to the inside of an apple juice bottle after I'd polished it off. Poked it with a skewer and the spot I'd poked it turned red. I was pretty grossed out, but threw it away and was fine. Never didn't find out what it was, though :\

That sounds just like the stuff I cleaned out of my dehumidifier drain pail at the end of the season.

They should just get Bear Grylls to endorse them and be done with it.

Now it'll all be sold at the Fiddy Cent store, because the Dollar Store won't take it.

It is a sad fact of life, Don, but the truth is we all have to eat a little shiat gooey mold from time to time.

This has been going on since at least 2008.

No thanks pappy, I'm hairy enough on account of your Hungarian genes.

If it doesn't come from the tap, make sure it's for cooking or is packed with alcohol.

I never got sick from tap water. I never noticed any mold in it either. Even a couple times when I hadn't heard the city put out a Boil Water Advisory nothing happened to me.

And in the old days we used to buy vitamin pills and wash them down with plain water.

People are getting so STUPID.

Did they test it and it came back as mold?

If not I suspect something in the vitamin blend is precipitating out. Could be the matrix for the flavor, but that is unlikely.

I tried Vitamin Water a couple times, but I'm glad I never acquired a taste for it. Taking a sip and getting something chewy would ruin my day in a big way.

I can't think of very many examples where negative press has affected my buying habits, but this certainly has. I'm never buying Vitamin Water again.

Why would they continue using the same bottle design if this is a known issue?
 
2012-11-15 01:35:34 PM
Great. I'm drinking one as I post this. I live on this stuff. (shudder)
 
2012-11-15 01:47:39 PM
Bottles of sugar water stored at room temperature? Yeah, that's a great idea.

Consumers piss me off. They don't want preservatives, and then when they buy a non refrigerated product without them they are surprised that they are contaminated.

Their just making kombucha. Umm..................kombucha.

It's never a FUN mold, like ergot, in your mass-produced products...

/imagine the possibilities...

Vitamin water
Possible Title...
Oopies (negative a, minus b, -c, etc...)

Possible Description...
Well, here's something you would probably not expect. Although, you may not expect to see your ex again, or that -- in quotation marks - friend that was once yours at high school. Whatever in your life throws back at you, we hope you would pull up a brave face and continue drinking our real flavors of our own vitamin water. The rest, however, is on you to expect the unexpected.

It sounds like they need to buy preservative free products from locally based vendors.

DaMoGan:

No thanks, I'll stick to scotch.

Putting vitamins in whisky might be a good idea but I'm not about to spend three times the usual price just for the convenience of not having to find where I put the damn pills this time. Too bad for my liver.

By the way, my exploration of scotch is somewhat constrained by my budget and the inability to find a few things I've read about her in Lexington, KY: so far, as blends go Black Grouse is decent but kind of she-male, IYKWIM. Now it's hard to decide whether to try Famous Grouse as the experts recommend or go with another of McClelland's single malts; their Islay was like drinking Liquid Smoke unless I melted a couple of ice cubes in it, which made it damn tasty. I'm at the stage where bourbon's getting boring, even if there are about a dozen drinkable ones in my price range, but if my current rate of increase continues in 10 years I'll be sucking down Old Crow by the half-gallon. Hell only knows what character these intrusive digressions of mine will have by then: maybe I'll be inserting critiques of webcam donkey shows. ("The things I have to put up with.")
