My up and down relationship with the drinks from our friends at Romano’s Italian Soda is well documented on this site. Today’s installment is one I’ve honestly been putting off, Romano’s Italian Soda Creamy Strawberry. I was just recently was turned onto strawberry soda. I can’t say that I love it, but it’s a solid flavor… I’m sure the rest of the world is glad I approve of it. My only qualm with strawberry soda is the fact that it’s usually a bit too sweet for my complete liking. Since Romano’s punched me in the face with their Sour Apple (in a good way) I thought their strawberry soda would be so sweet I’d be turned to sugar.
Looking at the color of Romano’s Creamy Strawberry I feel a bit better about my decision to try it. The only way I can describe it is pink bordering on red. I like the color of this soda a lot actually; it has a fresh look to it. I don’t know why, but I just feel that when I drink this I’ll be transported to a garden in spring time. It’s time to delve down a little further.
I must say that I’m quite intoxicated by the strawberry smell coming out of the mouth of this bottle. It’s such a rich odor, there is no doubt that you’re about to enjoy the taste of strawberries. I was neutral about trying this soda before, now I’m actually craving my first taste. Let’s drink.
Creamy strawberry soda, the label says it all. This is without a doubt the best Romano’s soda I’ve tried to date. Think of drinking your basic strawberry soda, now instead of that bite you get at the end of it… you know the one that kind of hurts your throat a bit? Instead of that bite you get a smooth cream all the way through the drink. The lack of bite doesn’t take away from the flavor either. Romano’s Italian Soda has a solid strawberry essence through, and through. It’s a sweet drink, and while I got onto them for not making Blackberry tarter, I’m ok with this one being as sweet as it is since it’s labeled as a “creamy” beverage. The aftertaste is just as delicious as the drink itself. It doesn’t stick in your mouth; it’s moderately light and pretty refreshing. While I don’t think I’ve had enough strawberry sodas to consider myself a connoisseur of them, this is the best strawberry soda I’ve ever had.
Verdict: Buy a Pallet!
Twist was actually the inspiration for the song "Strawberry Fields Forever"
