Last March, Kung Fu announced a partnership with Nintendo to help promote Kirby and the forgotten land. The promotion included prize sweepstakes and a new Kirby-themed drink to be released on July 1st. Yes, after the release of the game I was promoting, I had to wait more than three months for a true promotional item to hit, but I remember, I managed to get it down.
Finding a Kirby fruity rally, known as a drink, has never been so easy. For starters, there aren’t many kung fu tea locations in my area. Second, I had to call some to find it. I was told that the first place I tried was sold out just days after its release. The second kept telling me it would be there for a few days the next day. But they eventually got their supply and I immediately headed there.
I ordered Kirby’s Fruity Rally and left good tips for supplementing several times a day. I had to worry about these employees about ridiculous promotional items. Anyway, the prize was in my hands. A cheap plastic cup that turned Kirby into bubble tea, like mouse full mode in his latest adventures. Or is it Boba? Until recently, when Boba seemed to take over the common language, I’ve always heard that it’s bubble tea.
After taking a picture in the parking lot on a nice day, I was ready to drink Kirby. Kirby’s fruity rally with berry crystal bubbles in a cool Kirby cup. But at that moment, I encountered a difficult choice. You see, kung fu tea applies a thin layer of plastic on top of the cup. In this case, it was also Kirby-themed. I tried peeling off this delicate Nintendo merchandise, but it was useless. I had to make a hole with a straw. Even though it’s the standard for most bubble teas, this particular sealing method represents a really sad design for psycho fanatics trying to store this trash as a collector’s item. Yes, it’s me.
So, after sticking the top of the cup into what seems to be the safest place, I was ready to indulge in this hard-to-find drink. I took the first bite, and Wilford Brimley flashed immediately in front of me. My taste buds were beaten with a sweet sweet berry flavor. I guess it was strawberries and raspberries, and maybe some others. I’m confused. It was really delicious. I wouldn’t have noticed if the crunchy foam in this drink had a berry-like taste. I tried a little bit of a thick cold drink without putting it in my mouth, but it tasted like a plain soft gummy candy. Maybe it was like those pineapple Haribo’s? That’s fine, but it’s not as fruity as you might be guided to believe.
The more I went down while sipping the cup, the more regret I had. It may be delicious, but Kirby’s Fruity Rally may be the sweetest and sweetest product I have ever eaten. I should have stopped, but I didn’t want to. I had to review this product for the readers of the Nintendo World Report. I kept it: take the medicine and chew the foam. Some of those bubbles were accidentally fired behind my throat, but I survived. After all, I knew I was loading sugar and made a big mistake. The sugar crush later hit me like a truck.
Was it worth putting my health at risk to bring you the story of Kirby’s Fruity Rally? i hope so. However, when tracking this promotional beverage, this type of slimy fruit drink portion may be too much for a rational person, as it’s not like tea despite the name of the facility. Please note that there is. Kirby fans should drink at their own risk. I’m probably going to drink water and V8 for a week.
