Review: Sidral Mundet


Sidral Mundet

Lightly carbonated flavor, influenced by actual apple juice, is very clean. It can probably best be described as tasting like an apple juice version of sparkling grape juice. And yes, it’s sweetened with real sugar. Yum!

Review: McDonald’s Sweet Tea


McDonald's Sweet Tea / Mickey D's Sweet Tea

McDonald’s introduces their own version of sweet tea, branded as Mickey D’s Sweet Tea. This is part of a large initiative to expand the beverage offerings of the company, following the success of their Premium Roast Coffee. We tap into a sweet tea expert to compare the offering of the Golden Arches against an authentic southern recipe. How does it stack up?

Bubble Up

Amazing clean flavor thanks to the inclusion of lemon and lime oils, dry aftertaste powered by the use of cane sugar, and packed with a nice bit of bite. Highly recommended.

Review: Jones Soda Christmas Ham Soda (2007)


Jones Soda Christmas Ham Soda (2007)

There’s a new Turkey & Gravy Soda on the block, and its name is Christmas Ham. As the anchor “gross meat product” selection in the 2007 Jones Soda Holiday collection, Jones Soda Christmas Ham Soda lives up to the task of forcing you to gag and really hate that you tasted this beverage. However, the flavor — even a bad one — is quite lacking to take on the worst Jones Holiday flavor ever.

Review: Jones Soda Christmas Tree Soda (2007)


Jones Soda Christmas Tree Soda (2007)

You know those pine-scented air fresheners you see hanging from the rearview mirrors of cars? That’s kinda what Jones Soda Christmas Tree Soda tastes like. Only in liquid form. And carbonated. It’s a rare flavor in the 2007 Jones Soda Holiday collection because it oddly isn’t modeled after a food item. Nope, it’s modeled after a tree. Even with that difference, it’s still not a good idea to stick it in your mouth!

Review: Jones Soda Egg Nog Soda (2007)


Jones Soda Egg Nog Soda (2007)

Sure, it’s a really, really yellow-colored drink. After all, it features both Yellow #5 and #6! But Jones Soda Egg Nog Soda isn’t too bad. It has the flavor of a lemon pie, very sweet. It’s a huge improvement over the garbage featured in the 2006 namesake of this drink. Overall, not a huge win, but something that forms a rather neutral compliment to the 2007 Jones Soda Holiday collection.

Review: Jones Soda Sugar Plum Soda (2007)


Jones Soda Sugar Plum Soda (2007)

Much improved over its 2006 version, Jones Soda Sugar Plum Soda is quite sweet, almost like liquid cotton candy. The blueish color is far more appealing than the red hue used in a previous installment. Overall, not a bad addition to the 2007 Jones Soda Holiday collection.

Review: Jones Soda Chocolate Coins Soda (2007)


Jones Soda Chocolate Coins Soda (2007)

Another chocolate-flavored soft drink in the vain of Jones Christmas Cocoa Soda and Cherry Chocolate Diet Dr Pepper, Jones Soda Chocolate Coins Soda tastes just like a liquid, carbonated version of Tootsie Rolls. It’s a great tasting flavor in the 2007 Jones Soda Holiday collection.
