...Dragonfruit vitamin water is full of such goodness. Not only is it good for you due to said vitamins (or so it claims), but it is a hideously bright pink color reminiscent of a proper RavenBlack Pink Drink (TM). It is made to be sipped casually in impressionistic places while wearing elbow length opera gloves and lounging beneath parasols with Viennese lace. Black ones. And it contains the following caption:

"despite having the word "dragon" in its name, no actual dragons were harmed in the making of this product. however, with 250% of the RDI of vitamin C inside, the fruit wasn't so lucky. with that said, we'd also like to inform some of you that dragons are actually imaginary. that means they don't exist, so, will you please, please, pleeeease stop sending us nasty letters. thank you. "

Hee. I am amused by my pink drink.

It is a most fabulous drink. The label is also particularly wonderful. Except they've stopped selling it around me - just the Smart water and the Fruit water now. I miss my bright pink drink.

Yum! :)

*g* A great goodness. BTW, I don't suppose the vendor of your parasol has a web page? Because I have SUCH desire to get it as a gift for someone I know... *g*

Actually, they do apparently: http://www.dragonwings.net/BattenburgLaceParasols.htm. They were a touch on the expensive side, though ($85). But much prettiness.

Cool! No problem about the price, she has a bf... all the fun of picking out a gift, none of the cost... *LOL*

I also was thinking about posting about Vitamin Water... I've become enamored of their lemonade. [grin] Can't have the Dragonfruit because of the ginseng thing, but there are a few of their others that are friendly.

I would like to point out that while the drink may be a "RavenBlack Pink Drink", and "made to be sipped casually [...]", this does not imply that I personally wear elbow length opera gloves or lounge beneath parasols. In fact, a RavenBlack Pink Drink drunk in the style of a RavenBlack involves either gulping the whole thing down in as short a time as possible, or, if it's a slush-textured drink, drinking it through a fat straw with at least five minutes of loud slurping at the dregs.

I wouldn't want anyone to mistakenly get the impression that I'm couth.

Ah - I apologize. I can see how the couth impression might come from my description. The RavenBlack Pink Drink referred only to the color, not the style of drinking. [grin]

First of all, yes, Dragonfruit is not harvested from Dragons.
However, the company fails to tell you that Dragonfruit is harvested BY Dragons. Yes, they tell you that Dragons are imaginary, so you won't think to investigate their sweat-shops and slave-like work conditions. It's all just a great big coverup.

But Dragonfruit is still tasty...
