Sparkling limeade. Those two words together make me so very happy. So of course I grabbed a can of Phancy Soda Chanh Vietnamese Sparkling Limeade when I saw it. The green color of the can coupled with the fun flower-esque designs grabbed my attention as well.
The fact that it’s made with real lime juice is an added bonus. In fact, here’s the ingredient list: Purified sparkling water, pure cane sugar, natural lime juice concentrate, natural lime extract, natural flavors, citric acid. My brain is hyping this up to be the most refreshing, most delicious limeade I’ve ever had. The only way it can fail is if the flavor is watered down.
The scent doesn’t seem like it belongs to a watered down beverage. It smells as strong as any limeade I’ve had which just gets me to salivating even further. Like some Pavlovian dog my mouth waters at the opening of the can. I can wait no longer.
I LOVE THIS AND EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. This is almost exactly what my mouth wanted to drink. The sour, bitter, sweetness of lime is easily identified making for an incredibly realistic flavor. Why shouldn’t it be? They used actual lime juice which is what absolutely MAKES this beverage. Yes, the carbonation is fun and makes for a lighter mouth feel, but it would be nothing if it backed up a watery attempt at limeade.
Each sip reaffirms my love of this soda. Phancy Soda Chanh Vietnamese Sparkling Limeade is truly limeade soda in as pure a form as I can imagine. There’s not a sugary candy lime flavor, there’s not a syrupy sweetness, there’s not a cartoon lime, none of this is to be found. This is limeade soda. If you don’t like limeade, you don’t like this soda. It’s that easy.
The only downside I’m finding is that it’s causing additional saliva to build within my mouth. Sadly that keeps the soda from being all that refreshing in the long run. This additional saliva is causing me to smack my lips to try and reduce this sensation. It’s a little on the gross side biologically, but I’m hardly bothered by it due to my love of the flavor.
I’ll tell you right now that I love this soda more than most anyone out there. I love limeade, a lot of people don’t. Like I said before if you don’t like limeade then you won’t like this soda. If you like limeade then buy all of this you can find.
Verdict - Buy a Pallet
