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.

Nella Bella Chocolate Almond Fizz

Nella Bella Chocolate Almond Fizz

The artwork on this bottle of Nella Bella Chocolate Almond Fizz is beautiful.  A grove of white trees standing starkly against a blue sky.  The words “Nella Bella” glowing as the sun peers over the first “E”.  Even the flavor intrigues me.  Chocolate Almond Fizz sounds like a delicious candy, yet this soda only has 10 grams of sugar because it’s also sweetened with Stevia.

Tommyknocker Almond Creme

You know I’m a sucker for fun label art, right?  Well Tommyknocker Almond Creme has tickled my fancy with their dwarfish looking miner holding a foaming mug.  He looks so happy, almost Santa like in his serenity.  While his face doesn’t show the markings of working underground you can tell he’s pleased with his drink choice.

O-Zell Pineapple Whip

O-Zell Pineapple Whip

I’d never heard of O-Zell sodas until a few weeks ago.  They advertise to be “All Natural” and have cartoon characters that would look more comfortable in the 1930’s on the label.  Today’s offering is O-Zell Pineapple Whip, whose bottle holds a strong Hawaiian flair.  Heck it’s even made with Hawaiian Cane Sugar.
