Another drink in the 'what my co-workers give me' file is Kola Champagne. The bottle is pretty plain, the drink a light orange, but the cat mascot sipping the named product is fantastic. Upon opening this I realize it smells a lot like cream soda. I was told it's a sugary drink, but lets find out.
It's not nearly as sugary tasting as I thought it would be, but it is pretty sweet in flavor. The bottle claims the drink has it's 'Original Jamaican Flavour' and I can't argue that it doesn't, as I'm not sure what that was. Kola Champagne has a cream flavor about it, with a nice little buzz of carbonation. I'd even go so far as to say it has a hint of citrus in it. It does leave your mouth feeling pretty clean, doing an excellent job of removing the flavor of whatever food you may be eating. You mouth does have a bit of a sugary flavor though after every drink, this could get annoying to some.
I like this drink, quite a bit actually, but I can't seem myself seeking it out. I prefer a standard cream soda to this, but it's nice to try something different every once and again. Kind of like Dr. Pepper Berries and Cream, you enjoy it, but you always go back to Dr. Pepper.
Verdict: Buy a Bottle!

Combining two things I've reviewed recently, this is kola champagne from Sof Drink. Unlike the kola champagne from Ginseng Up, this one has HFCS and sodium benzoate instead of Korean ginseng tea. Goodie.
Drinking it I can also tell you another difference: this is horrible. My brain did this when taking the first sip "okay this is kinda like cream soda too...okay now it's like dirt." I think I'm going to keep this one short. I mean, do I really need to go on? I just compared it to dirt.
Verdict: Buyer beware!
