Erin & EK Agree: Mauby Fizzz Tastes Like Shit

So maybe Dr Geek was the winner after all.

Erin's 4-pack of Mauby Fizzz, her prize for winning SoSG March Madness 2011, arrived. And it was not good. A few choice quotes from Erin herself:

  • "When the liquid first hit my tongue I thought, 'Well, it's not so bad. I don't want to drink the whole thing, but it could be worse.' And then it got worse".
  • "You know that brownish orange stuff they swab all over a surgical area to disinfect it prior to the operation? Have you ever wondered what that tastes like? Well, I found the answer."

I too have tried Mauby Fizzz, as well as "Mauby," the uncarbonated, natural version, and I couldn't get past the first sip of either (Try it yourself). Now, I wonder what Slow Cow tastes like...

I still want to try this for some reason

Erin or Sax,
Have you tried making a cocktail out of it? A mauby version of a Dark & Stormy, maybe?

Orel said...

We got so much more mileage out of this than if it had been a delicious drink.

Erin said...

Katie is at our old apartment, cleaning up the rest of it after we spent the last several days moving.

Neither of this knew this post would be up today. She just sent me a text that says, "I'm not convinced that Diet Mauby Fizzz isn't urine."

That inspired me to come over here to see if you guys had posted the picture of me drinking this crap. Interesting that you went with the "urine" angle as well.

And FB, I don't know if alcohol can help this stuff. It is truly awful.

@Erin

There's nothing that alcohol can't help.

Dusty Baker said...

I'm with FB. Put some rye in it, a splash of bitters, maybe some blue curaƧao, garnish with an onion...WHat could go wrong?

Spank said...

Ain't nothing like ice cold carbonated urine.

Jason said...

Is it time to start an Emo Mauby Fizzz tumblr?

"Mauby Fizzz was told it is the only thing that doesn't get better with alcohol"

Don Mattingly told Juan Uribe he should start drinking Mauby Fizz because they have so much in common.

Fred's Brim said...

Reading the description of mauby, I think it could used as bitters itself. In my head, I am thinking it tastes like a sweet, fizzy Fernet Branca, or it's bastard, Swedish-Chicagoan cousin, Malort

Dusty Baker said...

Wait...the headline for this thread states that Mauby Fizz tastes like shit. Since then, There has been an implication that it tastes like urine. Which is it?

Steve Sax said...

Yeeeeeeeeeah, boyzzzzzzzz! Dusty Baker calling EK out with the mixed metaphor shizzle!

Steve Sax said...

(the picture doesn't match the headline, either)

As one of the official taste testers of this stuff, I can tell you that I wondered about EK's headline/picture/text confusion as well.

But then I remembered the smell and taste of this stuff, and realized that it's like what happens after you eat really greasy, awful food, and you've got stuff going on where you can't tell whether you're peeing or pooping.

That's the Mauby Fizzz experience. EK is exonerated.

Ain't nothin' like an ice cold bottle of diarrhea.


Chunky!

Moby's Pizzz.

Josh S. said...

Kinda glad I didn't win.

I heard the prize for the PCS is a punch in the taint.

Dusty Baker said...

Thanks for that imagery, Erin.

And Josh.

HUZZAH!

My friends and i once stumbled across this "drink" at lunch. Being the open-minded youngsters that we are, we purchased some.

Jesus Fucking Christ.

Good God Almighty it was horrific. Im still having nightmares to this day.

Spread the word, so others don't have to suffer our pain.

The Mauby Fizzz legend grows!
