    My crowning achievement in life!

    There's a local shop in town that sells that Goya Sugar Cane juice. I've gotta try it now.

    Daria deserves better. I actually DID try Orbitz as a kid. It was a bit like drinking a bottle of humming bird solution enhanced with frog eggs.

    I also tried it. I remember the melon flavour tasting like Brad described. I remember drinking Orbitz on the ferry on a field trip. That was fun. haha.

    Stop with the Canada hating. :(

    The US will stop with the Canada hating as soon as you guys get rid of Celine Dion for us. It's your mess; you clean it up! (JK)

    By the way, I've had sugar cane (oh state fairs, where would the morbidly obese be without you?) and it tasted like...well, like sugar attached to strings. You split the cane open to eat it properly. Something tells me Goya just fucked up somewheres.

    Yes, it was like pure sugar water with a hint of fruit flavoring.

    I can't believe that people are still pissed that every other song on the radio in 1997 was the theme song to Titanic.

    We still have a bottle of Orbitz in our basement. o_O

    I didn't like it. It was a texture thing with me... I didn't like drinking chunks of gelatin.

    As for the other drinks, I like butterscotch, but I do not like coconut. Not sure about the sugar cane drink, since I don't like tomato soup either. And I am so glad I have never heard of that wheat pro-biotic flour water...

    I was fortunate(?) to try Orbitz back when it was readily available. I remember the taste wasn't that bad, but like the person above me said the texture from the floating lava-lamp bits inside kinda ruined it. I like certain "chew-able beverages," like milk shakes and Fruitista Freezes, but Orbitz just wasn't my thing. Not to mention it was like twice the price of ordinary soda. No thanks. I stuck more to Josta back then until Pepsi stopped making it. It was a sad time for me when that happened.

    I'd probably like the butterscotch root beer and coconut soda, though. No comment on the others. lol

    Put it on ebay; someone will actually buy it from you as a house decoration. (Don't suppose you have any cans of pineapple Fanta you could sell me?)

    I'm really surprised you guys didn't vomit that milk up right away D: I think I've learned from this that out of all of those if I were to try any it would be Dang since I do like butterscotch

    Oh my. So many missed balls jokes.

    Considering you can get such a diversity of products as molasses, rum, and ethanol from sugarcane, I can totally believe that you could get some substance out of it that would taste like tomato soup.

    "Dude, your balls are so small & light."

    "Oh man, I was totally swimming in balls last night; Fruitiest thing ever."
  • mecagodzilla851212
    i have tryed sugar cane before... it does taste like tomato soup... it taste like wet grass with alot of sugar... its okay.
  • Altorin
    My wednesday evenings as an 11 year old boiled down to playing PC games at a lan cafe in town, and drinking horrible things like Orbitz.

    You must understand How stoked I am that ya'll finnally tried Orbitz!
    OH MY FUCKING GOD!!! You finally did it! I'd been asking ya'll to try Orbitz since I started watching your shows.
    I wish ya'll had got the large lot of it like on ebay of different flavors to try maybe some aged better than others.
    The butterscotch root beer sounds awesome I love butterscotch!
    What was that last thing? was that really sour milk mixed with other crap or is it that fermented tea stuff like off Andrew Zemmer?
    Gotta love the cat anus that was a highlight of the episode!
    Did you go down a water slide in a jacket/shirt? With sunglasses on? WTF?
    "Hey, you bring me something to drink in the skull of an enemy!"

    oh damn I forgot something!
    Man, ya'll really loved talking about balls a lot in this video!
    I live in Texas and Goya is a popular Mexican market brand name for drinks. I've seen several different drinks under that label. never the sugarcane drink but they do got a coconut milk drink if ya'll wanna try that. I tried it before and it just tasted of water with coconut shavings in it.
    That reminds me of something else I'd like to see you dig up a can or bottle and try... Lime/Coconut Coke! Remember it?

    I tried Orbitz back in the day, the actual taste wasn't bad, but again, it was a texture thing, it just felt like I was drinking a really tasty glass of flem.

    Ah, Orbitz. I used to love those but the store only stocked one flavor, I think it was citrus flavor. (It had yellow orbs in it.)

    The little gelatin balls never did have much flavor to them. To me, they were just kind of in the way of the tasty beverage, but the drinks looked so unusual and cool with the orbs floating in it I kept buying them until the store stopped stocking them.

    I never had a melon one, but I'm guessing the horrible part of the taste is from the fact that it's 14 years old.

    Speaking of old, a couple got hidden in back of a cabinet until long past their expiration date so I decided to hold on to them as knick knacks since, as you said, it reminds you of a lava lamp. I'm fairly sure I still have them.

    If there was ever a episode in which smell-o-vision was made for, this was it.

    I was skeptical that I would be entertained by two guys just drinking odd beverages, but this was entertaining in a schadenfreude kind of way.

    Hope you guys have recovered since.
  • darkplex  - Dat Orbitz
    avatar
    This is the first really unique thing you've tried that I actually had when it was new! I remember seeing it in gas stations all over. I don't remember the taste being horrible, but the texture of those little balls convinced me to never try another one.

    Thanks for that bit of nostalgia.

    Wheat Flour Milk just sounds like something you would vomit up, it doesn't sound appetizing in the least. At least it seems like we just got a look of the worst thing you drank so far considering your reaction.
  • Superextempman  - real sugar cane does not taste like tomato soup
    ive sucked on sugar cane before and it tastes like sugar... so i dont know why the juice tastes like tomato juice
    but if the juice sucks i could only imagine what brazilian sugar cane liquor tastes like
    and you really tried probiotic wheat flour milk... you are braver than I!

    From wikipedia:
    "The small balls floated due to their nearly equal density to the surrounding liquid, and remained suspended with assistance from an ingredient known as gellan gum. The gellan gum provided a support matrix—something like a microscopic spider web--and had a visual clarity approaching that of water, which increased with the addition of sugar."

    Still... that looks freaky as all hell... And I want to try that soda :O
  • Superextempman  - new soda to try
    you seriously need to try a Zuberfizz from my hometown of Durango, Colorado...
    seriously best soda ever and i think you would like it
    recommend the key lime, the cream soda, the colorado cola or the root beer
    and its available on realsoda.com

    So this is like bubble tea? That's current. You ought to go get some.

    If you can get your hands on it(it's not sold in the United States), try Peardrax. Seriously, I'd love to see a "Brad Tries Peardrax."

    Note to self: Health drinks like wheat pro-biotic stuff will make me violently ill...Irony.

    I think would have hated every single one of those drinks, except the Sugar Cane one. I would have just gone and heated it up and had it for dinner haha.

    Some one in 90's got bright idea to make this drink.
  • Flyguy4740  - The worst drink i ever tasted...
    avatar
    The worst drink I ever tasted was from Goya. It's called "Malta", I bought it from a Walmart and wanted to try it. When I got in the car and tasted it, I couldn't even swallow it! I had to open the door and spit it out!

    Yey! You tasted Colombiana! Colombiana is a famous drink from Colombia, South America that is very common among parties or BBQ's. I was so envious when I saw you drinking it since I came to the United States 10 years ago from Colombia, I haven't had the chance to taste them often. Now I'm nostalgic... ;-;!
    The Orbitz onces are visually appealing though, even though they seem to taste horrible XD. Sorry about that!
    The Sugar Cane one-- well, I can understand why it tasted weird. There are different types of Sugar Cane juices and the ones you tasted is closes to the rawest flavor of the Sugar Cane that originated in Cuba. There are others like the Panela that is way more sugary in flavor and different variations. Goya is trying to say to Hispanics "here! we have something for you to drink from your homeland!" It's a very tempting offer!
    As for the last drink, damn. Damn. I would've thrown up there. Hold your fort, gentlemen!

    And now a cheesy commercial of Colombiana from 1984:

    I remember trying Orbitz. I hated it. Absolutely hated it. My friends thought it was great, though.

    That wheat drink looked disgusting.

    I've chewed suger cane. It's sweet...and fibrous, but you don't eat it. You pretty much suck the sugar juices. Maybe they grind down the whole cane and put it into drink form. I mean, it's a plant. That might be why it tastes like a vegtable soup.

    You guys made me laugh so hard with the milk bit that tears rolled down my face. I can't believe you drank that!

    well, i guess it makes some sence to go on the "rape slide" more or less fully dressed.....

    I remember Orbitz! O_o Doesn't sound much better than it was fresh.lol

    Butterscotch root beer sounds awesome, and with a name like Dang!, I must try it at least once!

    The next two were largely forgettable but that last one... that looked baaaaaaaaaad.

    Also nice waterpark shots :)
