Blackberry Cobbler is my favorite dessert of all time if it’s accompanied by a scoop of Blue Bell Homemade vanilla ice cream. Here’s where my Texan shows as I made sure to include the brand of ice cream. So I’m a bit worried to try this blackberry cobbler soda by Blue Plate Special because I know it won’t spark my taste buds like my favorite dessert. Let’s just get this over with, shall we?
Ok, so the aroma is very blackberry heavy, but also has a candy finish to it as well. As far as fruit flavored sodas go that’s about par for the course. It smells like the candy version of the fruit on the label. Since soda is liquid candy the logic is solid.
Hey, guess what everyone! It doesn’t taste as good as my favorite dessert! The blackberry taste is sadly much more sweet than I’d like it to be and my taste buds can’t even chase down the taste of crust. So what I have here is an overly sugary black berry soda. Is it good? Yeah, it’s alright.
Even though it’s sweetened with cane sugar the soda still holds tightly to my teeth and tongue after each sip. It’s not really syrupy, but I could do without the aftertaste as it’s just more of the same saccharin flavor.
Carbonation wise it works rather well with it’s small clusters of powerful fizz. If only the taste was more than average and actually tasted like black berry cobbler. What annoys me the most is that I know they can do it. Blue Plate Special makes the most accurate Red Velvet Cake item outside of Red Velvet Cake. Why does blackberry cobbler have to suffer.
I’m going to stop now before I get too harsh with the review. The bottom line is that this is an alright soda that doesn’t deliver on what the label promises.
Verdict - Buy a bottle
