In case you haven't heard, Zima – the half-beloved, half-mocked malt beverage discontinued back in 2008 – is back. But is it good? Or at least taste like it used too? In the name of journalism – we expect your letter in the mail, Pulitzer committee – we bought a six-pack, gathered on a couch and knocked back a couple of Zimas (and a bag of Skittles, natch) to find out if the clear beverage's comeback was worth it.
Did this new Zima bring back fond '90s memories, like rocking out to the Spice Girls and crushing on JTT? Or did it just awaken once-suppressed memories, like Aqua's "Barbie Girl" and Pauly Shore? Take a look for yourself!
If you're looking for a six-pack of your own – either to drink or to pour Skittles into and then spill all over your pants – Zima is currently in stores for a limited time.
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
