There’s a fun store in Draper, UT called Pirate-O’s where you can buy gourmet and specialty foods. Mister E. found some pretty wacky sodas there and thought it would be fun to buy some of them to sample with friends. We combined it with Del Taco’s Taco Tuesday (hey, 3 tacos for a $1 is awesome!), Lil’ Drums, candy, Settlers of Catan and Destiny. This post will focus on the wacky sodas we tried.
These were the flavors he brought home (minus one called Kona Red from Hawaii):
Bacon was actually more subtle than I expected with just hints of the flavor mixed in with the sweetness. My mouth did feel a little greasy afterwards, but maybe that was just a mind trick. Peanut Butter & Jelly was just odd. I did not really detect either food and I do not know exactly how to describe it. It was not horrible, but it was not good. Fufuberry was a normal fruity soda that just had an odd name. No big deal there and I would definitely buy it again.
The worst, by far, was the teriyaki beef jerky flavored one. We opened the bottle and the smell of soy sauce wafted out. It tasted like sweet carbonated teriyaki sauce. HORRID. I had to spit that one out right away after one tiny sip. One person in our group even ended up throwing up after the experience.
I remember reading about how Jones Soda has a whole Thanksgiving dinner soda pack. That may be something we have (?) to try.
What is the oddest flavor of soda that you have ever tried?
LOL! I have never been brave enough to try wacky flavors but maybe I will when they come out for the holidays.
Do it! It’s fun, even if they are horrid.
The most disgusting flavor I’ve ever tried was Diet Chocolate Shasta. I think beef Jerky would top it though 😛
Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Diet anything is gross already.
Those flavors sound gross but so enticing to at least try once. I used to take different regular soda flavors growing up and mix them; they were pretty good but not for everyone. Jones soda is something I haven’t tried in ages and need to hunt some down! 😀
One of my favorite mixes of regular flavors is root beer and orange. Mmmm 🙂
I am not letting my husband see this post, because he will totally follow suit!
