Private Selection - Peach & Black Pepper

Private Selection - Peach & Black Pepper

I’m going through one of my trademark “dry spells” currently.  It may seem silly, but I have to be in the right mindset to write what I feel is a good review.  Correct mindset or not I’m still always on the lookout for a soda to try when I’m out and about. Fortunately for me my local Kroger contained a soda that caught my eye, Private Selection - Peach and Black Pepper.

Rowdy Roddy Piper ….all out of bubble gum

Rowdy Roddy Piper ….all out of bubble gum

I like to put fun references in my reviews when possible.  My Street Fighter and Mega Man energy drink reviews show this well.  Today’s soda is Rowdy Roddy Piper … all out of bubble gum. This review should be dripping with wrestling references or at least a casual mention of the movie “They Live”.  I’ve never been into wrestling, I have tried a time or two, and I’ve never seen the movie “They Live”. This cuts down considerably on the number of fun parallels I could have made.  Just wanted to forewarn you of what you were about to embark on.

Hollywood Original Shirley Temple Soda Pop

Hollywood Original Shirley Temple Soda Pop

Ginger ale, grenadine, and a maraschino cherry.  Those are the three ingredients needed to make the drink known as the Shirley Temple.  It’s a simple concoction, but a tasty one nonetheless.  If you don’t feel up to making your own then I guess you could do as I did and grab a bottle of Hollywood Original Shirley Temple Soda Pop… or as the kids call it HOSTSP.

Zuberfizz Strawberry Rhubarb

Quick, picture a rhubarb.  For seven of you a clear concise picture popped into your head.  The remainder had pictures spinning and stopping as if on a slot machine in their heads, never quite landing on one that worked.  Rhubarb looks a little bit like red celery.  I have no idea what it tastes like personally but according to the internet it is similar to sour green apples.  I bring this up, as you’ve likely guessed, because today’s soda is Zuberfizz Strawberry Rhubarb.

Jackson Hole Soda - Grand Teton Grape

Jackson Hole Soda - Grand Teton Grape

My fifth grade teacher was talking to us about the Grand Teton Mountain Range.  I’m not sure why, I just remember the subject being discussed.  At the end of the conversation she told us “Do you know what Grand Teton means?  It means large *makes motion with hands that would make anyone think breasts*”.  I’m not sure why she told us that, if it was a giggle test to check our maturity or if she just wanted to make learning cool.  Either way it stuck with me, though there’s a chance it was named after the Teton Sioux tribe instead.
