It's almost summer and to me, summer and a cold beer are synonymous.  So, I announced to my swim team last night that Jelly Belly has released a "draft beer" jelly bean, thinking everyone would want to have a pack of these at poolside, or take a pack with them on their next bike ride or even shove a few in their shorts pocket for an upcoming run.  Surprisingly, the reaction was a resounding "yuck". 

Then, in my email box this morning was an announcement from GU Energy Labs about a new flavor GU gel, Salted Watermelon.  I will not be mentioning this to my team for fear of getting super-soaked!
