The judges loved Ken's enthusiasm and the sweet taste of the drink, but overall they thought the name fell short and the Sriracha wasn't properly highlighted with the flavors.

"At least two judges said 'Thanks for the snacks,' referring to the apples and other fruit in my drink, by way of telling me my drink sucked hard."
