Beverage: Number 1
Ingredients: Duong, Glocoz, Huong lieu tu nhien, mau tong hop (102, 124), chat bao quan 211
Appearance: Uncannily similar to the main ingredient in the great Scottish sport of piss diving.
Aroma: Tizeresque with floral overtones. There be chemical coated meadows in this can. It’s fruity too. Hence the Tizer mention. Tizer is a fruit packed health drink.
Taste: Just what IS it with sugar in Vietnam? Did someone just leave the tap running a la foam in this aircraft hangar? There’s a shedload of sweety sweetness emanating from this beverage. Akin to a heavy dose of Spangles. Am I getting apples in among the chemicals here? The brand name is somewhat misleading, it’s more a Number 5 than a Number 1, but it’s not that bad. Just too sweet for me and my dentist.
If this drink were a roadsign it would be… risk of grounding.
Our survey said… Number 5 out of Number 10.
Cost: 4,000 dong. I think.
