The label said "GOURMET soda," but I didn't have much faith in this:
Brand: Jelly Belly Green Apple Soda.
Origin: Fairfield, CA.
Purchase Place: "Frattallone's Ace Hardware," St. Paul, MN.
Sweetener: Cane Sugar.
Review: When I popped the top, it smelled like wet cardboard. My first sip was interesting: it had a very "CANDY green apple" flavor (not like a tart ACTUAL green apple), and then it had a strange aftertaste. The flavor wasn't bad, it was just more sugary than I expected (and I expected it to be a bit sugary). Overall, I'll call it just barely below average - it was drinkable, but not great.
Score: 4 out of 10.
