What is the worst item you bought at the LCBO in 2014?

Often my wife and I will buy new products at the LCBO that we have not read about, just to try them out. Very rarely have we ever had something we just didn't like until last week. We we picked up many cans of various beers, some that we had not tried, and since we like Stiegl Grapefruit Radler, I picked up a few cans of "Wernesgruner Radler". You can find it's description and picture here:

I had one sip and thought it was nasty, so told Mrs fD she could have the rest of the can. Well, the whole can went down the sink 2 minutes after it was opened! It has zero body and is very sweet, with not even a hint of hops. I also realised after tasting it that it has sucralose in it! WTF? I never buy anything with artificial sweeteners as I can't handle the weird taste. I didn't think to check the ingredients as I would not have expected that in a German product.

Has anyone else tried this product and if so, what did you think?

What is the worst thing you bought at the LCBO this year?
