So I put forth a poll last night on which Swamp Pop flavor to drink next. The results were overwhelmingly in favor of Satsuma Fizz. 100% of voters picked the beverage so it must be good. Technically the folks at Pops 66 were the only ones to vote, but doggone it they did and I’m going to listen to them. A Satsuma, if you are unaware, is a little sweet orange. I’m actually quite surprised I’ve never had a Satsuma soda before as I think the flavor would translate rather nicely. There is only one somewhat odd ingredient in this soda and that is Beta Carotene. It’s not really going to affect anything, I just thought it was interesting. Onward!
Ooohwee, it’s a tart little orange soda judging by the scent. Thankfully there is also a sweet aroma mixed in, but it really does seem like the citrus side of Satsuma will be the one to shine.
That is truly a realistic tasting orange soda. The natural sweetness of the titled ingredient is quite prevalent, but not so much that you’d mistake this for sugary nonsense. So many orange sodas are sugary nonsense making Swamp Pop the newest member of the sparsely populated “unique orange soda” clique. Hopefully RootJack doesn’t bother him too much.
A burst of tart orange takes over my mouth just short of it feeling like I’m biting into the fruit itself. Only once the sharp yet light carbonation gets out of the way do you experience any sort of taste resembling candy. Well timed, this happens at the end of each sip, allowing my taste buds to go on a pleasant journey each time I draw the bottle to my mouth. This might be the shortest review I’ve written on a soda I really enjoy. I won’t over complicate what is a simple enjoyment with more words. Well, maybe four more.
Verdict – Buy a Pallet
