It’s no secret that that I love sweet tea, to be honest you’re not going to find many people in the south who don’t. Sweet tea is pretty much a staple in everyone’s home around here. I usually make a gallon every couple of days. I will be honest I am a tea snob so when my husband brought in a pre-made gallon of Milo’s Sweet tea one time I thought he lost his mind! However, in my time of weakness I decided to try it! WOW, I was amazed! It was actually great! I still prefer my tea of course but we always have a gallon of Milo’s on standby in our fridge now. I later tried other pre-made gallon teas and found out real fast that none come close to Milo’s
Milo’s is the most popular tea in the country and has been the go-to staple beverage of the South since 1946 in homes across the Southeast. They recently came out with three new products joining their legendary collection—decaf sweet tea, lemonade, and a tea-lemonade blend—as these new products provide more options for families to choose from. So when I was offered to review these new products I jumped at the chance and since the summer is coming up the new products came out just in the right time.
Lemonade-OMGoodness! The Best Lemonade ever! Everyone in the family loved it. I even went to the store that night (ok 3 stores actually) to try to find it in gallon size! I was heartbroken I couldn’t find it! I have been told I should have been able to find it so I am still looking! We have to have it!
The Decaf Sweet Tea-It wasn’t as sweet as the Milo’s Sweet tea but it was good. It’s a better option for me at night when I need my tea fix but don’t wanna be up all night like regular tea does.
The Lemonade and Tea blend: I will be honest all of us agreed this just wasn’t our cup of tea. The truth is I hate tea with lemon. I even make sure I request no lemon on the side when I order tea at restaurants. I really had high hopes that I would like this since I loved the lemonade and tea separate. However, it just wasn’t for us. So with that if you like lemon in your tea you will love this new blend!
