Cicero Beverage Company Candied Bacon Cream Soda

Wow, I need to clean off my desk.  I just checked to see if I’d reviewed Cicero Beverage Company Candied Bacon Cream Soda before, obviously I haven’t, and the search came up with my review of Cicero Beverage Company Salted Caramel Root Beer.  Then I looked to my right and saw the half empty bottle of Cicero Beverage Company Salted Caramel Root Beer.  To reiterate, I need to clean off my desk.

So as you may have guessed today’s review is of Cicero Beverage Company Candied Bacon Cream Soda and at no point am I going to shorten the name for ease.  No, Carbonation, I’m going to type it out every time to emphasize how ridiculous it is.  By the way this is sweetened with cane sugar and contains both natural and artificial flavors.  With that said, I’m just going to move on.

Twist excretes smoked goodness

The aroma of Cicero Beverage Company Candied Bacon Cream Soda is 85% cream soda and 15% bacon.  Honestly it’s not so much bacon as it is “smoked scent”.  I guess I’ll find out if it translates to bacon or “smoked flavor” soon enough.

Guess what, this is a cream soda with a “smoked flavor” added to it.  The actual taste of bacon is missing, but this smoked sensation does create an interesting taste not unlike roasted marshmallows.  Unfortunately, each sip I take steps further away from the campfire and becomes slightly more obnoxious.   

Underneath all of the lies is a slightly above average cream soda that would probably be pretty good on it’s own.  Oh well, at least they tried to be original with their flavor.  I can’t really fault them for that, in fact it makes me happy to see.  

Cicero Beverage Company Candied Bacon Cream Soda isn’t gross by any means, it just doesn’t really deliver on what it promised.  So if you think bacon cream soda would be gross then Cicero Beverage Company Candied Bacon Cream Soda is for you because it tastes nothing like bacon.

Verdict - Buy a Bottle
