Well we've got a thing or two to teach you about how we do things 'round here. For starters, we only wear overalls.

For the women-folk, they wear sundresses. That's the way 'tis and that's the way it's gonna be, now and forever. Number two is that we make our pies with lard, the way that mama made 'em. None of that fancy, low calorie margarine like you city slickers have up there. If y'ain't got lard, butter. Ol' fashioned butter'll make everything go down smoother. Get used to it.

Fourth is that we make our sweet tea with two things; tea and sugar. That's it and that's all, now and f'ever. What's that you got there, boy? That better be a bottle that used to have paint or some sort of gas-o-line in it or I ain't tasting' it. Alright, give her here, I'll take a swig.

Swill is what it is. It's downright syrupy, if you ask me. City boy, number five is respect your elders so don't you forget it. Real Southern sweet tea is smooth and sweet. This is smooth and sweet and syrupy. Do you remember me saying that real Southern sweet tea is s'posed to be syrupy?

Boy, you've got some learnin' to do before you make it down here. It's not all swamps and gators and biscuits and gravy. What'd you say, darlin'? I've got to go, boy. M'wife made gator stew with biscuits and gravy. He goes on more little trips than anyone I know. Dude will just up and leave and I'll call him and he'll say "Oh, I'd love to get tacos but I'm in Nebraska" or "I'd love to get pizza but I'm in Albuquerque".

One thing that Dan excels at is thinking of Thirsty Dudes and always bringing us stuff back. Well on this occasion, he brought us stuff back from a store that is two miles away that carries this drink that I've never seen, Jay's never seen, and Derek's never seen.

That's strange as we typically scour stores we've been to hundreds of times. You know, just in case. So he brought us back every flavor they had and I paid him in a burrito.

He wanted me to wait for him to try this, but since he's not here, I'm thirsty, and this guy was cold, I had to go in without him. He would and should be upset. It's got all the inherent bitterness you would expect from a white tea but a killer, natural strawberry flavor through and through.

It contains "strawberry flavoring" which is a bit ominous but it also contains Poteet strawberry puree although there isn't any seeds or strawberry remnants. Poteet is a city in Texas known for its strawberry festival, and dude, if this is what they come up with, I might have to schedule a trip. This tea is wonderful. It's strong, sweet, and it tastes as natural as it says it is.

Texas is known for being big, not liars. That stuff was cheap gas station swill that was passable only because it was so cheap. This on the other hand is a high quality organic tea. This one is also actually made in Texas instead of New Jersey. You can tell from the taste that actual blueberries were used in the creation of it. The sweetness of it is also very obviously pure cane sugar.

I can imagine myself slowly sipping on a bottle while I sit on a back porch of a century house somewhere in the backwoods of the south. The bottle was also informative as I learned that Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas and it also has the highest production of blueberries out of anywhere in the U.

Who would have thought that? I never expect much to be in Texas. With the exception of Austin my experiences in that state have been less than stellar. This spells low quality. I am so down on plastic bottles. In my head they instantly make a beverage seem cheap. Glass bottles are at the top of the beverage containment food chain. Next in line is the aluminum can.

Plastic bottles are way down at the bottom. Can you imagine if the Ghostbusters would have used plastic for their containment unit? Their proton packs would have been pointless, because those flimsy things would have never held the souls of the screaming undead. You know what's an even bigger bummer than plastic bottles? Finding out that everything I had read about Ghostbusters 3 was just internet rumors.
