Yee haw, Buckaroos! What I got here is the rootin-ist, tootin-ist bottle of cream soda this side of the Mississip! Sioux City Cream Soda! Of course anything associated with the old west is gonna be made with cane sugar! Good, simple, old fashioned cane sugar… and sodium benzoate like mom used to make! Gracing the label art of this cool clear bottle is a real deal cowboy riding his horse to the west… or east… or north… or south… well it really just depends on how you hold the bottle. Personally I think they missed an opportunity to call this Cowboy Cream Soda because I’d have bought a pack of it off the name alone. Anywho, I’m powerful thirsty so let’s get this going.
Ahh the sweet smell of cream soda! While cream soda isn’t my favorite beverage to consume I will argue with just about anyone that it has one of the best aromas out there and Sioux City doesn’t disappoint. If someone disagrees with me I just might have to hobble your lip. With that said, it’s time to bend an elbow!
The initial taste of Sioux City Cream Soda isn’t as sweet as I thought it might be but it doesn’t let you down either. For just a split second I taste what seems like a diet drink only to be quickly covered up by the smooth texture/taste of what should be expected of a cream soda. The diet flavoring really dry gulches you before giving way to its smoother brethren. It’s as if you’re watching a magician get ready to pull something out of his hat and you see what you think is a rabbit tucked down in there. You’re disappointed of course but you still feel the need to see the trick through. Blammo the Magician then reaches into his hat and pulls out an iguana. You’re not stunned but you’re left surprised by the outcome. The smooth mouth feel of Sioux City Cream Soda is nice but it’s not as fine as cream gravy… I’ve had better. The carbonation level is right where it should be but I find myself not caring that much about it anyway for some reason. I really thought that since this was made with cane sugar and overall good ingredients I’d be a bit more impressed. When it comes to figuring out why it didn’t quite do that… well, I’m at sea. I’m not saying this is shoddy by any means but as far as cream sodas go this one is between hay and grass.
