Today I pulled from my fridge one of my favorite flavors of fluid… green apple. Now I’m not sure how C&C Green Apple will fare against the others, but I have high hopes for this brand that has already surprised me a few times. I’m pleased that it’s “green apple” soda instead of “apple” soda because I feel that green apple gets looked over a bit more while regular old apple just hogs the spotlight. The soda itself is a vibrant green (as it should be) and the label contains three pictures of green apples sliced vertically down the center. Time to crack open this delicious looking manzana verde soda. Onward!
A sour/sweet candy scent greets my nose from the open bottle. The sour aroma is what I was looking there as you can’t have a proper green apple soda without some pain in the back of your cheeks. Bubbles are now collecting at the top enticing me to chug this entire bottle right now, but I mustn’t as it’s my duty to weakly describe C&C Green Apple soda to you as I sip it.
Well my tongue is now crying tiny tears of letdownness. C&C Green Apple isn’t all that sour so my cheeks are cheering with joy. It’s different enough in flavor that I can still differentiate it from regular apple flavored soda, but it could be so much more. This soda should have popped me in the mouth, but instead it delivers a pleasant green apple taste followed by a watery chaser. C&C Green Apple soda is the equivalent of getting a great green apple soda, putting a large amount of ice in it, and then consuming it 4 hours later. CURSE YOU C&C FOR GETTING MY HOPES UP SO HIGH! Every sip I take makes me so angry for what could have been. Do something that makes my taste buds remember you. It seems now with my ranting I’ll remember them forever, but ask me in a year to name some green apple sodas and I can almost promise you this won’t be one of them. Jones Green Apple blew me away to the point where I used it at my wedding. Romano’s Sour Apple was average, but the fact that it tried to burn out the back of my throat made it memorable. C&C Green Apple is a watery mess that I will not recommend to you. Good day, Sir!
Verdict – Buyer Beware!
