U.S.-based custom beverage development company Flavorman has announced a new drink flavour that depicts the year that 2021 was. Called “Nada Colada”, this beverage reflects how the year was both challenging and lackluster.
It resonates with how many have felt in 2021, that nothing meaningful was getting accomplished. The Nada Colada does not contain any color or flavour, described to have a bland taste.
“When you think of a ‘nothing’ flavor, you think of flat carbonation or a soft drink without syrup. Or, a glass of slightly infused water left stagnant overnight,” said David Dafoe, Founder and CEO of Flavorman. “We thought 2021 would be a positive year but it just felt like a slow-motion continuation of 2020 with unfulfilled hope of a return to normal, so we are naming the beverage and flavor ‘Nada Colada’ and hoping next year’s flavor will be much more exciting for us all. The positive is that 2022’s flavor should be much more enticing since we’re starting from nothing.”
The Nada Colada comes after 2020’s “Dumpster Fire”, which summed up the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic. The latter features spicy, smoky ginger hints combined with bittersweet grapefruit.
Flavorman is expected to craft another custom beverage flavour for 2022.
