Sunburn protection… on the inside.

22 04 2012

Ever fallen asleep in the sun, with your mouth wide open?

No – me neither, but if it’s a risk, I have a possible solution!

My son has several Asian friends, and they’ve introduced him to a Korean drink by Paldo, made of Aloe Vera (yes – the stuff they make sun cream out of). It has a faint taste of processed grape juice – as many North American drinks do too – but is quite refreshing and has “floaty bits” just for good measure.

Paldo: Sugar free Aloe Vera drink

Obviously I don’t recommend you assuming it has any sun-oriented benefits whatsoever…

Um. . .I’ve “tasted” aloe accidentally after putting it on a burn on my hand, and I can’t recommend it, although your mention of “floaty bits” was really quite enticing. . .

Not!

So you’re not a fan of Bubble Tea then?!

Never tried it. Is there actually aloe in it?
Blech!

Bubble Tea has balls of chewy semolina in it. You suck the drink through a wide-bore straw and occasionally get a glup of gooey ick in your throat. (No comment please MM!)
As for Aloe, don’t knock it! It’s cactus juice. Just like tequila… :)

I’m thinking I’ll stick to tequila.
And only MM has to refrain from comment regarding the gooey ick in your throat? So many possibilities. . .

I think that’s what they call a premature ejaculation.
