We love apple soda. Apple soda is something we love. With that said when we first proclaimed our love for apple soda it was suggested that we try Sidral Mundet because we’d love it. We tried it and we did not love it. In fact we told folks to steer clear of it. “You should have had it in the glass bottle!” they said in reply. While not reviewed on this site, Mike did try it in a glass bottle and formulated the same opinion. Today is round three and it was given to us by Abel A. Sidral Mundet Manzana Verde (Green Apple) is what sits in front of me, in a glass bottle nonetheless. Of all the apple flavored sodas green is my favorite, no… my favourite. That’s right I love it so much that I have to use the British spelling to convey said love. The soda itself is a delightful mint green and is very appealing to the eye. Being a product of Mexico it is of course sweetened with sugar and will more than likely require a bottle opener. Smell time.
It did require said opener and upon removing the cap a blast of green apple aroma shot out of the bottle. My faith is building that I may perhaps enjoy this beverage called Manzana Verde… by Sidral Mundet. Taste time.
This is so much better than regular Sidral Mundet. The apple flavor is stronger and not watered down. I can decipher that it’s a green apple soda and not just an apple soda that’s green. The carbonation is very light and hardly noticeable unless I swish it a bit. Only after doing so do I notice a hint of bubble brushing against my cheeks. The mouth feel throughout it was pleasant until I reached the end of my journey and found it to be a bit syrupy. Even with this somewhat syrupy finale I would still recommend Sidral Mundet Manzana Verde as a drink to grab if you’re in need of some serious refreshment. Overall I’m very pleased with this beverage and will ultimately recommend you purchase multiples. Its strong points are color, taste, and carbonation with its only weak point being mouth feel. Manzana Verde is a very nice entry into the genre of green apple sodas. If I see it in a convenience store I’m sure I’ll pick one up for the journey ahead and suggest you should too. Oooh, maybe with some Zesty Salsa Tortilla Combos!
Verdict – Buy a Pack
They're having a "green off". Twist will win.
