This sounded a little strange, but they're a local company that I WANT to like, and the first kinda strange sounding soda that I had of theirs was actually pretty good. So I gave this a try this past weekend:
Brand: Joia Blackberry Pomegranate & Ginger Soda.
Origin: Minneapolis, MN.
Purchase Place: Lunds Grocery Store, St. Paul, MN.
Sweetener: Cane Sugar.
Review: It's got a pretty strong and unique flavor. It's a little strange, but still drinkable. Barely. My wife said it tasted a little like perfume (and I can see what she means). All of the flavors can be tasted: blackberry, pomegranate, and ginger. It's a bit sharp with very little smoothness. It has a bit of a bite from the ginger. Not a very tasty soda.
Score: 4 out of 10.
