Whenever I travel to College Station I always make a point to stop at one of my favorite farmer’s markets, DiIorio Farms. They have a good fruit, and vegetable selection, but I usually go for the cane sugar sweetened sodas they sell. Usually I pick up something different every time I go, but once I stumbled onto Frostie Orange Soda I never really wavered… until now. You see this isn’t a review on Frostie Orange Soda (you’d know that if you read the title), but this review is written only because of my experience with the Frostie brand. I picked up a Frostie Orange Soda once on a whim. The first sips tasted like cardboard, but as the orange soda disappeared the taste kept improving to the point of awesome! This coupled with the fact that I enjoyed the “Frostie Face” on the label made Frostie Orange Soda a great pick up for me.
Well the last time through I brought my fiancée, and asked her to pick out a soda for me to review. Thankfully she picked out Frostie Blue Cream Soda. So here I am, about to try my second Frostie beverage, and you’re here to read all about it.
Frostie Blue Cream Soda is a very nice shade of blue, so I’m glad they opted for the clear bottle. Sadly though the “Frostie Face” as I’ve now dubbed him is absent from the labeling. It doesn’t have a very strong odor upon opening either… which I think is a bit of a letdown. The faint odor you do get is a bubble gum smell, which seems to be synonymous with Blue Cream Soda. Frostie Blue Cream Soda is very smooth, with very little carbonation attacking your tongue. This may be a plus or minus for you, but I like a little fizz. The easy way out of this review, which I will now take, is that it tastes like bubble gum and cream soda mixed together. Since I only have one other blue cream soda to compare this too I will mention that the Frostie Blue Cream Soda is a bit too sweet for my liking; the sugar is coating my mouth. I have to say that I prefer the Spicewood Blue Crème Soda to this one due to Frostie’s overly sweet flavoring.
Verdict: Buyer Beware!
Twist can't get the sugar off of his tongue!
