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

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.

Private Selection - Huckleberry Hibiscus Cream Soda

Private Selection - Huckleberry Hibiscus Cream Soda

The final bottle of Private Selection (Kroger Brand) soda is upon us.  Huckleberry Hibiscus Cream Soda is the flavor on hand and I’ve saved it for last for a reason.  I’m often intimidated by flower flavored beverages.  You tell me something tastes like cherry I know what to expect.  Cola?  You bet, I have several examples of that in my mind.  Sarsaparilla is where it begins to get a little fuzzy, but I still feel confident enough to write on it.  Rose, Hibiscus, or Lemongrass… I really reach to put my thoughts on paper.

Private Selection - Creamy Ginger Root Beer

Private Selection - Creamy Ginger Root Beer

Another day, another bottle of Private Selection soda from Kroger.  The past few bottles have been honest in their flavor which is appreciated.  Today’s offering is Creamy Ginger Root Beer.  From the name alone I’m fairly excited to taste this one.  I like creamy sodas, I like ginger sodas, I like root sodas, and I like beer sodas.  Perhaps my breakdown is a little off, but you get the jist.  Here’s hoping this soda’s “title” isn’t the only delectable portion.
