Bar I used to frequent in Las Vegas in the early 00's would ring a bell and announce when someone would order a Zima. I was there quite a bit and only heard the Zima alarm go off twice in 4 years.

Dated a girl in the 90's, 'Zima Tina' was her nickname.  Strange that she drank the crap as she was a bartender.

Cool.  Now I don't need to chase shots of my cheapest rot-gut whiskey with malted battery acid.

I was in a Walmart last night and the Zima was on the same aisle as the hug-a-mugs.  Seems appropriate.

Grab some Jolly Ranchers, and the 90s party can get pumped up, baby!

Priapetic: Helloooo hangover!

/Need to bring back Cisco, it would take some of the heat off the opioid crisis


I used to see all the hoodlings buying that crap and couldn't understand the draw. Technically the proof was too high to sell as ordinary beer/wine on a grocery store liquor license, but where I worked in the early 90s we got a case in anyway (oops), so I bought a bottle of black cherry. Drank half the bottle, felt weird, and laid down... and then the room started to spin. I couldn't get back up again until it wore off!! Liquid crack indeed: stuff must be 50% pure methanol. Mind you I could put away rum and vodka in the same quantities with no ill effect.

As for Zima, I could never pin down what the flavoring was. Some kind of herbal? Like bitters? It was familiar but to this day I can't figure out what it is.

Oddly I was just watching Babylon 5 last night in memory of Stephen Furst and got a laugh out of the fact that in the future of 5oo years from now, there will still be Zima. (Served at the bar)

2017-06-20 09:32:08 AM  
Oh, and I think I remember those hyper-lame commercials being one of the few that were actually targeting Gen-Xers.  If I remember, it was a "cool" mid to late 30's dude in a bar (or similar setting) full of early 20-somethings, showing himself to be the life of the party while wearing outdated 80s attire and convincing everyone to order those stupid clear glass bottles of nastiness.

That's *my* generation.  We can't even be marketed to by someone from our own generation.  We need a Boomer to tell us what to drink and how to party.
 
2017-06-20 09:32:31 AM  
When I was in high school, everyone jumped on that rumor that you could get drunk off of Zima and it wouldn't show up in a breathalyzer if pulled over by cops.

Of course some idiots believed it and got charged with DUI's.
 
2017-06-20 09:32:33 AM  
I actually liked the original Zima, before they reformulated it with a lower alcohol content... Then again, I also liked Miller Red...

/Not a beer drinker...
//Scotch, whiskey, bourbon, rum... Yum...
///But why is the rum always gone?
 
2017-06-20 09:33:16 AM  
Upside of 90's nostalgia: I got a Use Your Illusions t-shirt.  Downside: Zima and Surge.
 
2017-06-20 09:33:25 AM  
I was in the grocery store last weekend when an employee walked past pushing a skid of Zima.  He saw me staring and started laughing - said "yes, you aren't seeing things"!
DRTA, why is it back? WHY?

Yeah, I was thinking Cisco never went away. It's right there next to Thunderbird and Night Train.

I feel like some of these rumors are created purely by police to make their jobs easier.  Like "an undercover cop has to tell you they're a cop if you ask," and "if you confess to having drugs they can't charge you with possession."

That's actually smart of them.  Hipsters love that 'Oooo, look how ironic I am' kind of things.
