Dublin 1891 Red Cola

Dublin 1891 Red Cola

I really dislike allergies. My right eye is watering like a toddler waters a plant. Thankfully, at least I believe so, I’ve got a bottle of Dublin 1891 Red Cola. Earlier this year I thought I’d reviewed every Dublin Bottling Works product, but then I stumbled upon their 1891 line. I’m not sure if the ingredients are better, but it appears as if it’s a step above their normal sodas. Just so we’re on the same page, all of Dublin’s sodas are sweetened with cane sugar.

Grapefruit Kiss

Grapefruit Kiss

I’ve never heard of the soda Grapefruit Kiss before, but here it sits in front of me in a beautifully labeled glass bottle. It looks as if it was designed in the 60’s or 70’s and its cane sugar sweetener keeps in step with the style. I haven’t always liked grapefruit sodas, but they have quickly become a favorite of mine in moderation. Here’s hoping that Grapefruit Kiss is a memorable one for all the right reasons.

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.
