Keeping Up With The Trends – Unpacking the Oros Drink


Can somebody explain the hype around Oros?

I once attended a wedding and they served a chilled Oros, that was enough for me and other guests to give the hosts a side eye.  But hey, we grew up drinking Oros, so why not serve it at your wedding if that’s what makes you happy?



Oros is currently making waves dividing the Tweeps into two categories; it’s either you are with Team Oros or you’re playing with Team Anti-Oros.  As you can imagine, Black Twitter is always keeping things so spicy!



This is what I think went down; somebody must have voiced out their displeasure with the drink and that alone got Team Oros out in defense mode as if it is to protect their master.


I have a strong suspicion this twosome was involved.


This is what Team Oros thinks of anyone who has something bad to say about the drink…



Apparently, the trick is all in your mixing skills.


Luckily for us, some members of Team Oros were keen to share a mixing tip or two in order for all of us to enjoy or rather appreciate this beverage.



Last word….




So, if you don’t like Oros, please check yourself and your mixing skills.  The tribe has spoken.  Uthini wena?
