Cartoonist’s Commentary:

Yeah it’s fashionable to poke fun at Zima and I’m obviously not above that. But at the risk of confirming my total lack of cool to the public, to tell the truth I was perfectly fine with drinking Zima back in the day. Yeah it was too sweet, but IMHO that was preferable to most of the “Ice” beers that had burst into popularity in the 90’s. Thankfully I’ve been exposed to a much wider range of beers and alcoholic beverages since then. But you know what? If a Zima were offered to me, I just might drink it for nostalgia’s sake.


P.S. – This got me curious to look up Zima on Wikipedia, and I was surprised to discover MillerCoors actually did a limited re-release of Zima this last summer. Being overseas that summer I had no clue this was going on. Wikipedia goes on to say it’s likely they’ll be bringing it back next summer due to its success this past summer. Does that mean these are the end times?
