So, a few months back someone bought me a pinacolada SoBe, and I never looked back. XD This is a quick review of the drink, and a small history. SoBe seemed to have gotten their idea for a lizard after seeing some art deco graffiti in California. Originally independent, the brand was bought by Pepsi around 2000. The line has several different beverages, but this particular drink isn't a soda, it's a fruit drink with milk.I tried the strawberry daiquiri, and the pinacolada flavored ones, and they're both really good. They're also fairly cheap; a 20oz bottle is about $1.50, but prices can vary depending where you buy it. For more information, here is their website, the Pepsi site, and their Facebook page. (Their not alcoholic, forgot to say.)
My friend and I went to a cafe' in the area a few weeks ago, and near the counter, I eyed a new drink I never saw before. What's more, it was a soda brand that had unusual flavors, and when I saw they had a bubblegum soda, or a lemonade flavored soda, I decided this was something I needed to try! Apparently,if you go on their site, and read their "About Page," they started as a small Canadian distributor, and moved years ago to Seattle, Washington. As you might have already known, if you lurked in the snack section of my blog, it's not the first time for me to try fruit flavored soda. However what is unusual is when I see flavors like bubblegum, or pomegranate pop up, that other brands haven't seemed to try. (And the bubblegum, and lemonade actually taste like it, by the way.) I'm glad I found a new brand to try, and they're trying to get more popular, so support them and buy one if you find it!
