In front of me I have another Rocket Fizz concoction. The flavor is officially named Gram’s Cracker, but I think we can all assume that it’s a graham cracker flavored soda and not a cracker flavored soda made by a guy named Gram. I knew a guy named Gram once, good guy, moving on. I’m already a little sad to be drinking this soda because I’ve already had Rocket Fizz S’mores Soda which included what I think would be the same graham cracker finish. Aside from that the S’mores soda also had hints of chocolate and marshmallow, leaving Gram’s Cracker with the remaining solitary flavor. Are three flavors better than one? Well the Party Rock themed review I wrote a few days ago would tell you that isn’t always true. I have a task ahead of me though, so let’s get to it shall we?
Maybe I spoke too soon. I can unequivocally, yup, went there, say that this smells very strongly of graham cracker, much more so than the S’mores soda did. Rocket Fizz Gram’s Cracker also smells a bit like burnt cake, but this isn’t off putting by any means. Let’s see if this would make good ol’ Reverend Graham happy as a substitute for his age old crackers.
Bizzare. This seems like something I would end up trying at my local carnival. The graham cracker taste is most certainly there, but I’m not sure I would identify it as such if I didn’t know the flavor I was imbibing. This has a cream soda taste mostly with a graham cracker finish. Oddly enough the taste reminds me of those little boxes of animal crackers you’d find at the grocery store. No, not the bubble shaped ones where you can’t tell hippo from hawk. I’m taking about Barnum’s Animal Crackers, the one with the actual string handle. The carbonation level is adequate. Hey there’s a spider crawling across my shirt. That’s a little freaky, one sec as I peacefully remove him. Ok, back. As I was saying, the carbonation levels aren’t anything to write home about, they blend rather seamlessly into the soda drinking experience. My biggest qualm is actually how sugary this soda is. S’mores soda didn’t taste as sweet as this, and without chocolate and marshmallow I’m not sure why Gram’s Cracker reaches this level of sweetness. There you have it. Rocket Fizz Gram’s Cracker is somewhat graham cracker flavored, somewhat animal cracker flavored, and somewhat cream soda flavored, all while being too sweet.
Verdict – Buy a Bottle
Do you find yourself scooping out all that disgusting pie filling so that you might get to that sweet, sweet, graham cracker pie crust? Let me save you some trouble, and save you from losing more friends by destroying delicious pie by pointing out that you can purchase this soda at Old52.com.
One of Twist's middle names is Gram.
