You don't know me, beverage.
This bottle of Vitamin Water (new flavor, "connect") claims to know me. According to the copy on the bottle, I "voted on the flavor & designed the label" on Facebook.
But if that's true (which it isn't; I knew nothing of this project), why do I think it's gross? Surely, if I were involved, it would be delicious, right? More to my citrus-and berry-loving taste?
I don't get black-cherry lime from "connect." I get a sort of cherry cough syrup and something undefined. Perhaps that's the caffeine.
Generally, "made by fans, for fans on facebook" is neither my favorite product slogan, nor what I'd pick as a fool-proof method for designing beverages.
