I don't know if anyone noticed but this website has a new section called the bevblog. It goes along with their hating on anything coke and pepsi.
For instance, they just put an entry about the new sprite packaging saying it missed the mark. They also have a post about how blue sodas never do well. but they only give one example which is of course a dis on PEPSI blue.
Anyone else sick of this site trying to act like they are experts. I myself am a fan of the more unique drinks but it still makes me angry the way they give no credit to the big guys.

Yep, I've seen the blog. I've seen the comments on Sprite, Pepsi Blue, even Sum Poosie! Just keep in mind, each blog is that particular writer's OPINION. Based on their own tastes, experiences, etc...nothing more. A blog doesn't require facts, data or anything to back up their statements...

Ok, so Pepsi Blue aside...what are your guys thoughts on the blog and its articles so far?

As far as I'm concerned, this new BevBlog is just a more transparent outlet for the BevNET team to freely state their opinions instead of nuanced comments in their reviews.
I don't think any of us should be surprised by any opinion they've put out in it so far.
The question is, now that they have new podium, will their reviews be a little more fair and representative?

I agree with you. Yesterday,I read the BevLog.
I thought to myself,this in not much of a log. It appears to be more of the same that can be found on the review page.
It would be so cool to have one of the experts from this board get invited to write a log entry. May be one entry a week from a different board member. After all we are the lab rats of this industry.LOL

I just readed the Sprite bevblog... John Craven, why you judge so bad acting like a packaging design expert the new Sprite logo? Just because its a Coke brand you talk bad of the giant of the lemon-lime sodas? :mad: IMO, the Sprite logo is really cool and I hope this logo would hit the international market...
And why to change the brandname??? have you lost your mind?... Sprite is a prestige trademark!
