Note: This drink was one of our featured beverages on The Popcast, Episode 1.
From the title you know this one is a joke. The company who has a history coming up with interesting flavors that have something or other to do with the holiday season has brought out another one, this time for us vegetarians and vegans. The first off putting thing is that it looks like dirty water. The second off putting thing is the fact that it contains 300mg of sodium. In fact, the second ingredient is salt. When we tested it, the initial smell was slightly citrus, which didn't make any sense at all. The taste made even less sense, it wasn't awful, but it sure wasn't good. We noticed hints of cardboard.
Now the bottle suggests eating it with mashed potatoes, so we obliged, in fact we warmed it up just like gravy. Sadly it did not taste like gravy so it would not make a decent and cheap replacement, however it was better over the potatoes, probably because they took away from some of the flavor of the soda.
One thing is for certain, this drink is still not as bad as our personal worst sodas, those being Malta Hatuey and Beverly. On top of that, it does have a lot of heart and creativity behind it, and again, we know that it's a joke.
Verdict: Buyer beware!
