I’ve got a Chubby. Now that the name of the drink has been said and the most obvious joke in my arsenal has been played, we can move on like the intellectual citizens we are. Today’s drink was supplied to me by Double Abeyta and its full name is Chubby BlueBerry Blast Soda. Chubby beverages apparently come in a short 8.45 Fl. Oz. (250 ml.) bottle adorned with a chubby cartoon character. There is no “story of chubby”, or “facts about chubby”, or even a name for the chubby cartoon character… although I’m assuming his name is Chubby. This is a product of Trinidad & Tobago so this is fortunately sweetened with sugar. The rest of the ingredients are chemicals, but at least we can rely on good ol’ trust worthy sugar. I’m a fan of blueberry soda so let’s move this review in the appropriate direction.
Chubby BlueBerry Blast smells like shampoo. It’s a fruity smell, but it’s a shampooey smell as well. If I use my imagination I can pretend to smell the scent of blueberry candy… this calms my thoughts. On to the drink!
While it does taste a bit like a fruity shampoo might, I’m happy to announce that shampoo is not the dominating flavor. This subtly carbonated beverage also tastes like chemicals flavored to resemble blueberries. Herein lies the problem with Chubby BlueBerry Blast… it doesn’t taste like blueberries at all. This tastes like a hodgepodge of blue candies blended together with little care what the end result was. I’m also sad(?) to say that the more I drink it the more this does indeed taste like I’m drinking shampoo. Maybe if Chubby BlueBerry Blast was marketed as a drinkable shampoo I’d give it more “props” as the kids say. Who am I kidding the kids don’t say that anymore, nor am I old enough to use the phrase “as the kids say”. With its impossible to ignore soapy flavor I wonder what would happen if I combined Chubby with bland boringness of Neurogasm. Someone with a lower brow than I can write that joke… I’ll just sit back and laugh at it.
Verdict – Buyer Beware
