Waialua Soda Works produces soda in a myriad of flavors, and all of them made with all-natural ingredients. That's right folks, no high fructose corn syrup or other weird ingredients that require a scientific manual to decipher are found here. For those readers who don't know, the Waialua line of beverages are made in Hawaii, and this fact is reflected in the ingredients of which I will now provide a truncated list: Maui Natural White Cane Sugar, Hawaiian Honey, and Hawaiian Vanilla Extract. So with that being said I chose a flavor of Waialua from the gourmet soda section of my local grocery store which I haven't tried yet, Vanilla Creme. So I ice my bottle down to a near freezing temperature and prepare for the uppercut of yum I know resides just inside a clear bottle.
The top has been removed and I take a long gulp. The taste is delicious. Vanilla Creme soda is usually very sweet to me, but this really isn't the case with this one. Don't get me wrong, it is sweet but I think the all-natural cane sugar provides for an even and smooth flavor that I am unused to. The mixture of vanilla and creme borders on the Divine and I can't help but wonder why I haven't tried this flavor before. I must admit that I usually don't finish all of the twelve ounces containers of soda I buy, but I find it easy to finish Wialua Soda Works Vanilla Creme. The taste is subtle and easy on the palate. After finishing my first bottle I seriously debate opening another, so I can be sure that I have done a thorough review.
By now it should be clear that I really enjoy the Vanilla Creme produced by Wialua Soda Works. As a side note, a quick search for the definition of the word "Wialua" informed me that it means 'two waters' and is a town in Hawaii that was home in ancient times to royalty and high priests and was the political center of Kaua‘i. Yeah that's pretty cool, I just drank a soda from there!
Final review: Buy a bottle: This stuff is excellent! Great taste, and great ingredients, what more could you ask for? Nothing, that's the correct answer.
