Review: Kosher for Passover Pepsi


Kosher for Passover Pepsi

Following in the footsteps of Kosher Coke and Kosher Caffeine Free Pepsi, I came upon a 6-pack of Kosher Pepsi… complete with the new Pepsi logo!

Review: Zola Acai Superfruit Juice (Original, Blueberry, Pineapple)


Zola Açai Original Juice

Zola Acai Superfruit Juices – available in Original, Blueberry, and Pineapple flavors – are organically-certified beverages that contain 93% juice, with flavor derived from the acai palm, known to have many health benefits. We enjoyed all 3 flavors, with the Blueberry and Pineapple entries being superior in taste.

Review: A&W Float


A&W Float

Take the flavor experience of a root beer float and bottle it. That’s what A&W Float soda attempts to pull off. It’s an interesting innovation idea… and one that comes close, but misses. While it does use sugar and skim milk, the resulting taste is so artificial that you shouldn’t even bother. Great idea, horrible execution.

Review: Red Bull


Red Bull

Red Bull is the granddaddy of energy drinks, having hit the U.S. market in 1997. It owns 42.6% share of the energy drink sector, yet for some reason doesn’t exactly taste very good. It’s bitter, somewhat berry-infused, and packs a ton of caffeine (9.64 mg/oz). But will it always be on top? What are your thoughts?

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.

Review: Jones Soda Apple Sauce Soda (2007)


Jones Soda Apple Sauce Soda (2007)

One would expect an apple sauce-flavored beverage to taste a lot like apple juice or cider. Jones Soda Apple Sauce Soda is not a bad attempt at the flavor. If anything, I felt that the drink’s apple flavor could have been more enhanced, as it was somewhat weak, almost like watered-down apple juice combined with carbonation. Still, not a bad contribution to the Chanukah Pack found in the 2007 Jones Soda Holiday collection.
