Mary's Beverage Review - 12-1-2011

Happy December, everyone!  We have a late night review tonight!

Capt'n Eli's Blueberry Pop

Another pure cane sugar find!

I love blueberry flavored things, and I have never had a blueberry soda!  I don't really like that it is called "Pop".  That kind of negates the worldly feel I think they were trying to go for with the packaging.  Only three states in the USA say "pop".  Despite the fact I live in one of them, I try to avoid it whenever possible.  Ah well, even I have slip ups.

Let's give it a taste!  It reminds me a lot of sparkling fruit juice.  Tasty!  Looking at the ingredients, it looks pretty good for a soda, too.  Water, Cane Sugar (always a plus over HFCS), blueberry juice concentrate, grape juice concentrate, blueberry flavor and preservative.  So, it's basically a bubbly blueberry juice! :D  Yay!  I was expecting a syrupy candy drink, I was wrong.

GRADE: A
I would recommend it based on good ingredients and a non-artificial tasting flavor.  Better than I thought it would be!

I remember the late great Lewis Gizzard saying that in the midwest, when people say pop, they mean Coke. And in the south, when people say pop, they mean "I'll pop you up side the head with this Coke bottle if you mess with me!"

What's interesting is that my Dad's whole family also uses the term "pop" (which as kids we always thought was silly). I'm not certain of the source of the word... My family hasn't lived in the United States for something like 200 years, though very close to North Dakota for the last 100 or so.

Oh, yeah! Not only do I like sugar better than high fructose chemical, sugar likes me better too. Makes my digestive system happy. ^_^
