Fritz-Kola Review

I had a good experience with their lemonade, but the Fritz-brand cola has the same problems I usually have with small-brand colas. It’s kind of… pungent tasting? It’s apparently quite difficult for a soda company to make a cola that is a) distinct from Coca-Cola and b) still good.

Would I buy it again? No

Fritz-Limo Zitrone (Lemonade) Review

While visiting Neuschwanstein Castle in Germany, I picked up a Fritz-brand lemonade soda at the takeaway cafe for a local hotel. It hit the spot well, with a sharp lemony flavor, striking a fine balance between sour and sweet (maybe a little more sour, but that’s okay).

Would I buy it again? Yes

D&G Jamaican Pineapple Ginger Soda Review

img_3088

This tastes exactly like it says on the label. It’s a good pineapple flavor married with a noticeable ginger burn. I don’t think I’d typically choose this one when I’m just straight-up in the mood for pineapple, because that burn is real prominent, and you have to be in the right mood for it. It might pair well with a spicier meal.

Would I buy it again? Yes

Red Hare Grapefruit Soda Review

Hey, it’s my first grapefruit soda since starting this blog. Though I can’t stand eating an actual real-life grapefruit, I seem to recall enjoying a Squirt from time-to-time in the past, and so since I liked the last Red Hare soda I reviewed, I figured why not give this one a chance? Well, I’m glad I did. The grapefruit taste is relatively mild–more mild than I remember Squirt being–and the whole thing is terrifically balanced. It’s not too sweet, no weird aftertaste, and overall the word that kept entering my mind as I drank it was “refreshing.” I’m actually in danger of becoming a grapefruit fan.

Would I buy it again? Yes

RC Cola Review

When I was a kid, RC Cola for whatever reason was considered bottom-of-the-barrel generic-brand garbage soda. I believe we referred to it as “Really Crappy.” On a trip to North Carolina, a few of the restaurants offered RC Cola on tap, so I reluctantly gave it another shot. I don’t know if it’s changed or I have or both, but it’s actually pretty good. In fact it’s better than Pepsi.

Would I buy it again? Yes when offered, but if I’m at the grocery store, I’d still get Coke every time I want a cola
