I haven’t had many Strawberry Cream Sodas, in fact I’ve only had one… and it was delicious. What I have in front of me is given to us by Dan the Fan, and it as you may have guessed is a strawberry cream soda. It’s a Deerfield Trading Co. Strawberry Cream soda to be exact, a brand we’ve tasted/loved before, and it's time to review it.
Upon opening this almost smells like strawberry soda with a bit of fruit punch mixed in. There really is nothing amazing about the scent, so let’s upend and move on.
The flavor is good, but it seems watery. I really wanted to have my taste buds blown away by what should be a naturally powerful strawberry flavor. To me this tastes like they took generic strawberry punch and... Wait a second, how about we do this in story form?
You’re at your High School Dance, and you’re feeling a bit thirsty. Dressed to the nines you walk over to the concession booth, hand Ms. Grundy a nickel, and get yourself a delicious strawberry punch. Just after you started on your strawberry punch Veronica/Reggie comes over and asks you to dance. Being a gentlemen/lady you oblige them and wander out on the dance floor forgetting your strawberry punch, and instead dream you’re dancing with Nancy/Chuck. If Veronica/Reggie could climb inside your head they would be heartbroken… HEARTBROKEN! You consider yourself a horrible person, but then think “if Moose can find happiness with Midge, don’t I deserve to be happy too?” As the song comes to a close you make eyes with Veronica/Reggie hoping they don’t see the dreams behind them. Wandering back to your table, nursing a now bruised foot, you sit down to enjoy your strawberry punch. Sadly though, all the ice has melted, and it’s once vibrant red is now a shade lighter. You take a sip, and you are awash with disappointment as what was once delicious is now average at best.
Verdict – Buy a Bottle
