Now that I’ve done some major processing of the events of the last week or so, it’s time to write something lighthearted. I awoke this morning to see this picture on my Facebook feed.
As I was opening my eyes this morning, I saw this picture and thought maybe one of my friends was advertising medicine for killer menstrual cramps or had picked up a box of slender regulars. But no… it’s just Natural Light’s latest product, Naturdays, which is “strawberry lemonade” beer.
Full disclosure here. I love beer. I drink it all the time. But if I’m going to drink beer, I’m going to choose one that tastes like beer, unless I’m drinking a Belgian lambic or a kriek. I used to drink Natural Light in college because it was very cheap and didn’t taste as horrible as Milwaukee’s Best did. I mean, I was a super fan of Natural Light for a couple of good years back in the day. Then I grew up and started drinking real beer.
I can’t imagine that a strawberry lemonade flavored beer made by Natural Light would be satisfying… but hey, there’s a market for everyone. This one is probably aimed at college girls wanting to get drunk for little money, but not liking the taste of beer. I mean, look at that packaging! It’s bright pink and has a flamingo on it! What could be more girly than that? All they need to do now is add some glitter!
I still think it’s funny that my first thought about this packaging is that it looks like a big box of maxi pads or a PMS remedy. I’m almost curious enough to try it. Almost, I say… I can’t remember the last time I drank a regular Natural Light. I have a feeling I would enjoy that experience as much as I would enjoy having sex in a canoe. It’s fucking too close to water.
