Sweet Stuff - Blooms Candy & Soda Pop Shop
Tasting - Bacon Soda Looks Like Orange, Tastes Like Grape
I'm trying something new this week. We have selected a focus group (4 regular customers) and are having them sample two sodas a week. Let me preface this by saying that I promise next weeks reviews will be a bit more descriptive. We're still working out the bugs on this project.
Our focus group consists of my daughter Reese, 7, Pedro, 12, Jack, 13 and Shane, 12. Shane, Pedro and Jack are regular customers who stop in the shop at least 2 times a week. We have been having them taste new stuff for a while now as long as they tell us what they think. Reese has no choice.
First up, Lester's Fixins Bacon Soda. We have been having a ton of fun with this soda pop lately as people are shocked at its mere existence. Lets see what the panel had to say:
Pedro, Jack, Shane: "Don't like the bacon" "Tastes like grease"......"I taste peanuts".... "kinda like root beer?". However, please note that they liked that the bacon flavor went away and left a kind of a cream soda taste after a while.
Next up, Looks Like Orange, Tastes Like Grape Soda This is a grape soda that is a pale orange color. Its got a really cool label with a giant eye on it that is repeated on the cap as well.
Reese: "It tastes really good. Theres nothing about it I don't like."
Pedro, Jack, Shane: "Its orange, but grape soda." "I was expecting something bad like the bacon but this was sooooooooo good." "I was really expecting something bad."
