I have to say, this drink was the first drink from 7/11 that I actually found disgusting. DO NOT DRINK IT. I promised in my last post that I would take one for the team and try something I normally wouldn’t pick out for the sake of this blog.
So this is black bean water. I was hoping to be surprised that it’s actually tasty, but nope, it was so gross I dumped it after three sips. Definitely a waste of 29元.
Taste & Flavor: The smell is strong, salty, and overall pretty bad, but when you actually drink it, it tastes plain. It kind of tastes like how the liquid would taste if you left a bunch of black beans in water overnight and drank that water. BUT THEN the smell comes back as an after taste 😦 I had to put an Ikea chocolate cookie in my mouth to get rid of the flavor.
Sweetness: Not sweet at all. It actually has no sugar.
Would I get it again? Not in a million years! Though it is advertised as a healthy drink. Low calories, no sugar. 1 bottle is apparently equal to the nutrition of 60g of black beans.
I think I’ve been avoiding unappealing drinks because I didn’t want to believe that 7 has bad beverages! Well now that I’ve faced my fears, I can go back to purchasing yummy looking ones 😀 (BTW, this drink is from Japan, so I’ve yet to try a bad one that’s made in Taiwan! :P)
Until next time,
