I was getting some "specialty" ingredients for a recipe at Lunds last week, and I walked down the soda aisle and grabbed this:
Brand: Frostie Orange Soda
Origin: Detroit, MI.
Purchase Place: Lund's Grocery Store, St. Paul, MN.
Sweetener: "High Fructose Corn Syrup and/or cane sugar."
Review: The first sip was good, but then there was a "sharpness" that didn't belong in an orange soda. I didn't expect it to be "smooth," I just didn't expect it to have that strange bite. It wasn't TOO bad, but it wasn't that desirable. I'll give it a middle-of-the-road score.
Score: 5 out of 10.
