Ely Wild Blueberry Soda

This was the other soda that my friends dropped off for me the other week. They grabbed it as they passed through northern Minnesota on their way down to the Twin Cities.

Close up of one of the BEST label designs I've ever seen.  EVER.

There's no contact info on the bottle, and I could find NOTHING online. This has to be a very small operation.

Brand: Ely Wild Blueberry Soda.

Origin: Ely, MN maybe? That would make sense. But who knows?...

Purchase Place: Zup's Grocery Store, Ely, MN.

Sweetener: High Fructose Corn Syrup.

Review: It smelled great! There was a strong blueberry scent that was a lot like blueberry pie! But then the flavor couldn't keep up to the smell. It didn't taste bad, it just tasted like 85% plain sugar with just a hit of blueberry flavor. Not the best. It was nice that it wasn't sharply carbonated (it just had a little fizz) because lots of carbonation would have made this even worse.

Score: 4 out of 10.
