My expertise with figs is proscribed to at least one product — Fig Newtons. I’ve by no means taken a chew from the fruit, seen one in actual life, or earned one as an historic Olympian, however I do know they are often purple.
Nevertheless, in the event you confirmed me a purple onion however instructed me it was a fig, I’d consider you. And in the event you put a Purple Vienna kohlrabi in entrance of me and instructed me it’s a fig, I do know you’re telling a fib. However now my publicity to the fruit has expanded past moist cookies because of Purple Bull’s new Winter Version Fig Apple Vitality Drink.
The aroma from the spout smells like apple laborious sweet, however at occasions, my nostril thinks it’s watermelon sweet. Possibly that’s the fig? No matter it’s, it’s not repulsive except you dislike the odor of Jolly Rancher.
What I feel is the fig is current instantly after taking a sip, and I’m going to explain it poorly as what I think about synthetic raisin taste is like. It’s a bizarre introduction, however a well-known apple style follows it, together with a noticeable sourness. After the preliminary burst, the fig fades, and it’s all apple, even all through the aftertaste. And that apple makes this Purple Bull a worthwhile, respectable tasting vitality drink that I’d sip once more.
I additionally wish to add that whereas I used to be ingesting this, my style buds had flashbacks to when it appeared like everybody, together with your grandma, had their very own vitality drink that was a Purple Bull knockoff. Possibly it’s the fig or the sourness, however that Purple Bull knockoff-ness isn’t unhealthy. It’s simply one thing I observed.
I’m too lazy to spend 5 minutes wanting this up, however I feel Purple Bull’s Winter Version Fig Apple is the primary fig-flavored vitality drink ever. (Web, show me fallacious.) I wouldn’t place it amongst my Purple Bull favorites, however I discovered it pleasing. Though, if it was a straight-up apple-flavored Purple Bull, I’d prefer it extra.
