I really wish there were more flavors of Howdy soda. It’s such a friendly word that means so very much to me. Well today’s version of Howdy sounds even friendlier because it’s flavor is Cherry Jubilee. How positive of a name is that?! Howdy Cherry Jubilee. Can you say that and be angry? The answer is no, no you can’t.
Howdy Cherry Jubilee is a bright red soda with a mauve and pink label. The colors used here dance well together and are really enticing to the eye. As well as being attractive Howdy Cherry Jubilee is sweetened with cane sugar and includes a small handful of natural and artificial ingredients to make up the rest.
Wow, that smells like cherries grenadine. Quite the powerful scent at that, it invites quick consumption with its aroma. Who am I to turn down such a polite invitation?
Wow, it tastes like liquid maraschino cherries. At least with the first few sips the mouthfeel is relatively clean and doesn’t have a syrupy taste at all. Howdy Cherry Jubilee is a very sweet soda, but does a great job at walking on the correct side of the “too sweet” line. The carbonation gives a nice quick burn with each sip adding another layer of enjoyment.
About halfway down the bottle I’m still enjoying it and all of the initial experiences are holding true. Sometimes you want a soda’s drinking experience to alter a little so it doesn’t build on itself. In the case of Howdy Cherry Jubilee the flavor doesn’t stack so the consistency is wanted.
As I do in many of my reviews I’m going to go ahead and suggest you drink this one for dessert. This is a fantastic soda and one I would recommend to most anyone out there. Perhaps the best cherry soda I’ve had to date... at the very least it’s a top three. The cherry flavor is candied as stated before, but if you’re not looking for a genuine cherry taste you should have no issue.
Even if you don’t find any of my writings to be convincing, how can you resist buying a bottle of something named Howdy Cherry Jubilee?
Verdict - Buy a Pallet
I bought this at an HEB grocery store
