Einstein Bros (Newish) Frozen Blueberry Lemonade

Another day without leftovers means another day to figure out what to buy for lunch. My lazy side says go back to Wendy's (again), but then I remember I still want to try the wildberry blender. Ok, off to Einstein Bros!

I head on in and order my sandwich first. A keep it simple by ordering a ham & swiss bagel melt. It's just ham, swiss, & tomato on my choice of bagel (I went with sourdough).

Not sure it photographed well, but it was very tasty.

Now let me order my blender to wash it down... uh oh, the cashier is new and doesn't have a clue what I am talking about. She calls someone over... and I'm not real sure he knows what I'm talking about either. He says they are all out, but offers to makes me a frozen berry lemonade instead. He says it's tasty... I hope he's right.

He disappears for a bit and then comes back with a cup full of lemonade, ice, and WHOLE BLUEBERRIES! HA! I know they do fresh, but that's just too cool!

The finished product and it does not photograph very well. To my surprise, it's actually quite good. It's thick, so it's hard to chug, but that's a good thing because it is very potent. Just like sippin' lemonade in the shade on a hot summer day, you're going to want to take your time with this one. Not too sweet, not too tart, not too berry, just a surprisingly crisp combo for someone who never drinks this stuff.

Now, time for the disclaimer. You know how I said they used fresh, whole blueberries? Well, after about gettings two thirds of the way through the drink, you really start to get into all the blueberry bits. The taste and texture take a turn for the worse, and your smile is going to be all nice and speckled afterwards. It's still decent, but it's going to turn alot of people off.

This was fun to try, and I'm glad I did, if only to actually see them use fresh blueberries. The problem is that I just can't give it a recommendation when it ends in such a mess (literally and figuratively)

Verdict?  different, but ends poorly
Buy Again?  Probably Not

Notes: This product was new this summer but is no longer on the website, though I guess it might be a seasonal treat. Also, I didn't have enough money to try the pumpkin bagel poppers!
