Happy Cinco de Mayo! Let’s celebrate with sombreros, Mexican beers, and a first from the TastingBuds! Yes, we are entering the age of new media with 720p HD video!
The following post is a video review of a new product that I heard about on the Diggnation show. The guys on the show liked the Limebrero, a hybrid fruit juicer / funnel that fits a standard beer bottle, so I thought I would give it a try.
I chatted with the Limebrero guys on Twitter asking if I could do a review for our food blog, and a few days later they not only sent me a Limebrero for review, they also included another product called the Lime Funnel.
Did the Limebrero work as advertised? Is this gadget actually more convenient than the old fashioned way of squeezing a lime into your favorite Mexican beverage (Dos XX in this case)?
To find out, either watch the short 2 minute video review, or
Overall the Limebrero worked as promised. I could envision myself busting it out every time I needed to squeeze lemon or lime juice into a Corona or Dos XX. Heck, you could probably even squeeze orange juice into a Blue Moon.
The Lime Funnel however, wasn’t a big hit with me. True, it was a little more convenient than the normal way of shoving a lime into a beer bottle, but my hands still got messy. I think the benefits were outweighed by the inconvenience of having to track another gadget.
So, Limebrero = YES. It’s worth the $5.95 and it’s a fun toy to play with (who doesn’t want their beer to wear a hat?). It will be a hit at parties and something to talk about.
The lime funnel though, pass.
