Review: Topo Sabores Pineapple

Topo Sabores Pineapple

A very sweet, very fake, very syrupy pineapple soda from Mexico. Keep your passport for something else.

On the Shelf: Mexican Coke 6-Pack with 12 oz bottles

Hecho En Mexico? Yup!

If there was any doubt that Coke isn’t pushing Mexican Coke into more U.S. markets, this 6-Pack of 12 oz bottles should squelch that discussion. Spotted by BevReview reader Bob Manning, the classy packaging doesn’t hide that this version of Coke is “Hecho En Mexico.”

Review: Sidral Mundet Manzana Verde (Green Apple)

Sidral Mundet Manzana Verde (Green Apple)

A lightly carbonated green apple soda with a taste that comes off somewhat fake, especially when compared to its superior red apple-flavored sibling.

Coming Soon: Coca-Cola Plus Catechin, Pepsi Shiso, and other odd flavors (Japan)

Coca-Cola Plus Catechin

Japan is slated for some new, interesting flavors from Coke and Pepsi. Coca-Cola Plus Catechin will have a green tea influence, while Pepsi Shiso sports a basil-inspired taste. These fit in line with other recent oddities from the Land of the Rising Sun, including Pepsi Ice Cucumber, Pepsi Blue Hawaii, and Pepsi White.

Review: Julmust Christmas Soda

Julmust Christmas Soda

If you could bottle the Christmas spirit, carbonate it, and sell it, it might taste like Julmust Christmas Soda. A deep cola, mild dark cherry, a hint of ginger, perhaps a bit of cacao. It’s what I imagine Vikings would have consumed from an oak barrel during the Norman Conquest of 1066!

Review: Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale

Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale

Canada Dry Green Tea Ginger Ale is a refreshing change of pace, bringing two light flavors together with a blend that rewards your sense of adventure, while providing just a darn good drink to experience.

Review: Fanta Wildberry

Fanta Wildberry

Fanta Wildberry is a pretty nasty drink. It has a flavor profile that I most similarly associate with Crystal Light’s Raspberry Ice flavor… but with carbonation and a not-nice aftertaste. It’s very syrupy and in no way represents any berry flavor I’ve ever experienced. A very fake-tasting soda.

Coming Soon: Pepsi Retro (Mexico)

Pepsi Retro

Coming soon to Mexico: Pepsi Retro, a cane sugar-sweetened beverage that utilizes “natural ingredients”, including cola nut extract. Available exclusively south of the border, the drink is another that does away with the use of high fructose corn syrup.
