ok, the other day i was driving back to the office, and i notice a billboard for this new drink – budweiser chelada – out of the corner of my eye. i could hardly believe it. mix crappy beer with clam-flavored tomato juice? really? bud light and clamato?
i can’t quite picture the product team that sat around a table brainstorming, and, when someone suggested that, all enthusiastically chimed in with, “that’s it!” i now realize, after looking online, that there’s a traditional mexican drink by this name; but it’s normally made with beer, lime and salt, which doesn’t sound very different than how most people drink their coronas. i’m stumped, and a bit grossed out.
leave me with sam adams and i’ll be just fine, thank you.
