"Lean"

Since so many seem confused.....

"Lean" aka "Purple Drank"
(it's also called "Texas Tea" or "Sizzurp") is NOT made with tea nor are skittles used because skittles won't dissolve.

It is usually made with Mountain Dew or Sprite (it must be a carbonated beverage) and jolly ranchers (candies that dissolve completely).

They prefer to use purple jolly ranchers, which is how it got its name. DJ Screw was known to mix cough syrup with mountain dew and then drop in a "purple drop" (purple jolly rancher" and often rapped about the "syrup"...


*** "Lean" is NOT made with Tea (or any Arizona product). Skittles are not used in the mixture either. ***



EDIT - this post is in response to people saying Trayvon Martin was buying tea and skittles to make "lean".

Thank you for letting the moms who refuse to acknowledge this know this information being that. They think they are right and the rest of us wrong.

LOL! I live in Texas.

It's a popular "drink" for rappers and football players using a codeine base cough syrup. It's not "illegal" but still gives them a high.

Some people believe everything they read.  I hven't stopped laughing about skittle in AZ fruit cocktails since I first read it.

I used to get messed up on that purple stuff (lean/purple drank) in college. I hadn't heard ppl were saying martin was going to make it made skittles and tea. Yiou can't use tea and skittles wouldn't work, especially with that gooey center.

Dang, this brought back my syrup drinking days.

Edited reply.
