Who doesn’t love apple soda… well besides Johnny Appleseed of course? I always figured being around all those apples would eventually make him sick of them. Sure he helped shape America with all he did involving apples, but I bet he only ate them to keep up his image. Fortunately Johnny “Appleseed” Chapman isn’t here to review this Topo Sabores Apple soda. Also fortunately… is not a proper way to start a sentence but… also fortunately I am here to review this bottle of Topo Sabores Apple Soda. As you might be able to tell by the name, Topo Sabores hails from Mexico and uses delicious cane sugar as a sweetener as well as HFCS just to confuse us. We’ve done a few of their drinks before so I’ll just add a link here… and maybe here. Let’s all read about me smelling this soda now. Pop Pop!
The scent coming out of the neck of this bottle is definitely that of an apple, but I will say that it’s also a bit more subtle than I expected. At first it smells like apple juice only to have the scent change to sweet soda at the last second, almost fooling you into thinking it was healthy. Drink time.
Very nice. Very nice indeed. This apple soda even tastes a bit like apple juice even though the bottle lists no such ingredient. With each sip I’m greeted with a touch of spice, much like you would experience in eggnog. Before my mind gets a chance to think too hard on eggnog soda the spice quickly dissipates into a mildly carbonated apple juice flavored soda. The aftertaste reminds me of a red apple/green apple hybrid. It is sweet and tart at the same time and lasts considerably longer than any of the other tastes you’ll experience. As much as I like Topo Sabores Apple Soda it doesn’t actually “wow” me. This is an above average soda, and I will suggest you buy multiples, but it’s lacking a special something that would set it apart from being slightly above average.
Verdict – Buy a Pack!
One day Twist will be on a bottle of soda.
