Maine Root Pumpkin Pie Soda

Author: Healthnuttxo

Pumpkin Pie Soda. Say whaaaaaat?!

I saw this in Whole Foods, and KNEW I had to try it. Really? Pumpkin Pie soda? How can that even be?!

It came in a 6 pack, or individual. I thought it would be best to try one, and then if I (hopefully!!) liked it, go back and buy the 6 pack of these sodas. I mean, how on earth could Pumpkin Pie Soda taste bad, given the fact I LOVE pumpkin, LOVE pumpkin pie, and well, not going to lie, soda is yummy too!!

I opened up the top and poured some out. It certainly screamed pumpkin with the color, and it even smelled like pumpkin. We were headed off to a good start.

Eagerly, I took a sip.

🙁 Gross.

In fact, it turned my stomach a bit. It was nasty. It really was not good at all. Upon first taste, ALL I tasted was sugar. It had this syrupy, sugary taste to it. Almost like a artificially flavored pumpkin lollipop would taste if it was melted down and carbonated.

It had somewhat of a vanilla creme flavor too, but it was not good. BLECH. I only took two sips and poured the rest out.

OVERALL, my first 1/2 star rating. I would never buy or drink this again. And I’m really disappointed because I really wanted to like this!!!!!

Here’s the nutritional facts, which also aren’t pretty. And no wonder it was so sweet, look at all that sugar!!

    I disagree completely! It’s delicious! It is very sweet though.

    I googled this soda after buying a 4 pack last night at Whole Foods. My bottle or carton does not have the nutrition facts printed on there. I was curious to see how many calories and grams of sugar were in it, so I am glad you took a pic of that area of the label.

    It is disappointing about how sweet it is (I haven’t tried mine yet). It may be good to bake with or in something else as a substitute for sugar in a pumpkin type dessert.

    great idea! And yes, quite a bit of sugar :/
