Brand: Maine Root Pumpkin Pie Soda.
Origin: Portland, Maine.
Purchase Place: Blue Sun Soda, Spring Lake Park, MN.
Sweetener: Fair Trade Certified organic cane juice (sheesh).
Review: I was ready to not like this. I mean, it sounds kinda gross. But I was intrigued because it only had 3 ingredients: carbonated water, Fair Trade Certified organic cane juice, and spices. Turns out, it was OK. It didn't REALLY taste like pumpkin pie, but it was herby and spicy like a real flavorful pumpkin pie is. It SMELLED really like pumpkin pie. It wasn't bad. I mean, it wasn't GREAT either, but it was one of the better "novelty" sodas that I've had. And, as seen above, my 5-year-old liked it.
Score: 6 out of 10.
