It's time for us to put on our highly scientific panties and get ready to analyze the bejeezus out of some champagne! (Or, technically speaking, since this IS a scientific study -- sparkling wine.) And this month's champers? André!!!! I KNOW! Posh already said in her analysis of our favorite portable beverage -- champ cans -- that life is too short to drink André. But is it really? Are we being fair to this convenience store staple?
There's only one way to find out, and that was to put it to the test, FYA style! (Translation: drink the shit out of it.)
André is both looked down upon and readily available, kind of like the cast of Jersey Shore! But I drank a whole bottle of it by myself -- just to be thorough -- and here's the skinny:
Tastiness: From Kind Of Bad... to Pretty Good!
Looks: The bottle looks like any good champers bottle, what with the gold foil and the green glass and the official looking ribbon. But the words still spell out A-n-d-r-e', so...
Value: It's $6.99!!!!! And it's fizzy! And it will get you tipsy! I'd say that's some REAL VALUE, right there.
Fancy Pants Factor: Slummin' it, or... Fancy Pants on a budget!
Champion Status: Bronze! This fighter was an underdog from the beginning, but by the end of the bottle, I could find no fault with André. Still, I'd recommend using this champ as a mixer.
Can't believe it? Watch the highly scientific way I achieved my conclusions!
And yes, after this, I've realized I must drink champers from bottles only until I can open them like the pro I should be.

And now I'll turn it over to you, highly scientific readers!
