Bud Light Presents The Worst Product Ever: Chelado

I had heard about this monstrosity, but had never seen it in any store.

Until today.

For some reason that remains unknown to me, Anheuser-Busch decided earlier this year to unveil a new product called ‘Chelada’.

What is Chelada?

Try Budweiser mixed with CLAMATO.

First of all, Clamato by itself is an unholy concoction of clam juice and tomato juice. I’ve never tasted it, not even by accident, and that in itself is NO accident.

But to take that nasty witch’s brew and mix in some beer? Great googily moogily.

According to the press release, the brewery claims that this beverage has some kind of deep, cultural heritage:

"Latinos, specifically those of Mexican descent, have been mixing beer with Clamato for decades. Budweiser & Clamato Chelada and Bud Light & Clamato Chelada honor that tradition by combining Anheuser-Busch’s classic American-style lagers with the spicy, invigorating taste of Clamato Tomato Cocktail, made by Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages (CSAB)."

Ohhh-kay. Whatever. I’ll take their word for it.

I’m just never drinking it.
