I always appreciate an orange soda that uses cane sugar and orange juice (concentrate most times). I really appreciate it when the picture on the bottle uses a pirate theme and calls it an “Orange Stash”. In case you’re the type not to read the title of these reviews, today’s article is on Jack Black’s Orange Stash. If I’m to believe everything I read on this label, this is only the second time this particular flavor has been available. I’m hoping that the fact it’s an orange “stash” and not an orange soda gives me a unique beverage to try, but something tells me I may be disappointed. Let’s find out together… as a family.
Comedy abounds in the world of Jack Black sodas. Under the bottle cap reads the following: “Once you have Jack Black you won’t switch back”. JOKES. With that said the orange scent I was expecting to come off the top of the bottle isn’t there. If I take a strong whiff I can begin to identify the scent as orange. Hopefully the flavor won’t be as hard to find.
The orange in Jack Black’s Orange Stash isn’t as intense as I’d like it to be, but with that said it’s a tasty treat for my tongue. It’s not as sugary to me as your standard orange soda and this allows for the orange flavor to be enjoyed for a longer period of time. The carbonation isn’t overly strong either which once again accentuates the star of the show, Orange. Even though I just stated the carbonation level isn’t that high it does still have an aspect of fun to it. It’s a light fizzy sensation that runs quickly from here to there in my mouth. All in all Jack Black’s Orange Stash is a pretty good beverage. The orange flavoring, while not a perfect replica, is more natural tasting than your standard orange soda. I’m sad to say, but the downside to this soda is that it’s kind of boring. Sure it’s a tasty beverage, but there’s not much about it that will make me want to recall it if I’m ever asked for an orange soda recommendation. If given the option I’d drink multiple bottles of this, but I wouldn’t really cry if I ran out.
Verdict – Buy a Pack
