Oh Zuberfizz, how you perplex us. One minute I can be enjoying a delicious beverage from your factory, and the next I can open a different drink of the same flavor only to find it watery. In front of me I have a bottle of Zuberfizz Grape Soda, and since I’m such a “Grape” guy, it’s my job to review it. I already know Mike’s call on this beverage… he claimed that it was watery. He also made that claim before we knew that Zuberfizz Soda was a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde. Now that we know that there are both, I have to hope this is one of the good ones. If in fact it is watery, I have to hold it against them. Hopefully, like Hot Lips did, they will explain why some of their beverages don’t quite match up to others. Let’s open this up.
Well some good news is the fact that it smells like a grape jolly rancher. I really do hope that means the flavor is strong as well. I always enjoy it when the cool refreshing cloud escapes from the neck of the bottle… if only it were the color of the beverage it was fleeing. Time to drink.
How sad, it’s watery. While there is a decent amount of grape flavoring, it has no real bite. It’s a smooth soda, but I’m not sure I like that for a grape flavored beverage. I want to be able to feel this punch me in the back of the throat. While I like that they use real cane sugar, this tastes to me like watered down grape soda that’s trying to hide behind its sugar. What I mean by that is since there is no bite for the sweetness to compete with; it makes the drink seem too sweet. It’s not a gross flavor by any means, but I can’t recommend you buy this when there is better tasting, cheaper, grape sodas out there. Could this be a watery batch… sure, but until I taste a better one.
Verdict – Buyer Beware!
