Shaquille O'Neil may have never been bigger! Not only does he have a role in the excellent The Lego Movie, but he also has his own line of soda from Arizona Beverages. I really don't drink much soda at all but I picked this up because A. I'm a sucker for strawberry cream soda, B. The can looks really cool and/ or crazy insane. Arizona seems to be the go to people for delicious beverages from celebrities, including their official Arnold Palmer lemonade and tea blends and their Jack Nicklaus Golden Bear honey lemondade, so it is cool to see Shaq get into the soda business. How's it taste, though? More refreshing details after the break....
Michael Jordan's Chaos in the Windy City better.
The can is really tall and only cost me 99 cents. Plus tax.
Who knew that in addition to having an Ed.D in Human Resource Development that Shaq was also an expert soda maker? I swear, the only thing that Shaquille O'Neil cannot do is walk through doorways without ducking. If anyone ever decides to reboot the cartoon Prostars, I want them to add Shaq to the team.
Shaquille O'Neil: Basketball legend. Actor. Rapper. Doctor of Education. Honorary U.S. Deputy Marshall. Person over 7 feet tall. Reserve Police Officer. Soda Maker. All of these things can be applied to Shaq, aka Shaq Fu, aka The Diesel, aka The Big Galactus. The man is a legend and now he's leaving a legendary impact on the world's collective tastebuds. For the full experience, try enjoying this beverage while playing Shaq Fu, listening to Shaq Diesel, and wearing some Shaquille O'Neil cologne (I'm sure they make it).
Vanilla Cream Soda: Great
Strawberry Cream Soda: Epic
That reminds me...one of the big malls here had Jurassic World Dr. Pepper in its supermarkets for a limited time. It's just regular flavor Dr. Pepper but the can does have the JW logo and a velociraptor or a tyrannosaurus (I can't recall which one at the moment) on it so it's an interesting piece of movie merchandise.ReplyDelete
I love movie promo stuff! Do you have Dairy Queen restaurants? We have them and they had a lot of really cool Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom themed cups and decorations in their restaurants over the summer. They also had an exclusive Jurassic Park themed Blizzard.Delete
We do but I don't think that the Dairy Queen outlets here ever released any Jurassic Park or Jurassic World merchandise or ice cream.ReplyDelete
I was able to buy a can of the Jurassic World Dr. Pepper on my way home from work yesterday. The dinosaur on the can is a T-Rex. I didn't see any other cans (the stockers said that they're all out) so I'm not certain if any of them have Blue or any other dinos on the front.
