Capt’n Eli’s Strawberry Pop

I visited a shop in Whitby called Soda Pop Centre. These are my stories.

So, it’s been a fruity three weeks, we had tangerine and peach in the previous weeks, now it’s strawberry’s turn. I think next week will have to be another root beer, but who doesn’t love a root beer?

I don’t recall ever having strawberry pop before, but it’s good. It reminds me of a strawberry wine, but not alcoholic (sadly), but we can adjust that surely. It’s quite sweet, but also quite refreshing .

Note on photo: I’m slightly embarrassed by this photo. Starting next week, I used my lighting rig, it should get much better.

Jelly Belly Gourmet Soda: Tangerine

I visited a shop in Whitby called Soda Pop Centre. These are my stories.

Jelly Belly Gourmet Soda: Tangerine

355ml
Ingredients: Filtered carbonated water, cane sugar, citric acid, sodium benzoate, natural flavours, sodium citrate, and FD&C Yellow #6.

This one’s quite delicious. It tastes like a cross between an actual Jelly Belly and a freezie. With just a hint of sour, a bit more bubbly than the Nehi, it’s very distinct1.

  1. Though, the Nehi is the better of the two []

Peach Nehi

I visited a shop in Whitby called Soda Pop Centre. These are my stories.

Peach Nehi

354ml
Ingredients: carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup and/or sugar, citric and malic acid, potassium, benzoate, potassium citrate, artificial flavour, gum acacia, and red 40.

For those unfamiliar, MASH’s Radar O’Reilly’s poison of choice was a Grape Nehi. The young gentle company clerk was not interested in the harder drinks that his colleagues chose, instead he went for Grape Nehi. I didn’t know it was a real drink, but apparently it is, and the store had the grape variety, but since I’m not a fan of grape pop, I decided to go for either the strawberry or peach. Seeing as I already had numerous other strawberry pops in my cart, I opted for the peach.

Holy crap, I didn’t expect it to be this fucking good. A strong peach flavour, and the carbonation is subtle, so as not to overpower the drink, which is the problem I have with a lot of grape pops. This make me wonder if I should try the grape version when I restock.

Thomas Kemper Root Beer

I visited a shop in Whitby called Soda Pop Centre. These are my stories.

Thomas Kemper Root Beer

355ml
Ingredients: carbonated water, honey, caramel colour, maltodextrin, sodium benzoate, natural flavour, gum acacia, phosphoric acid, sucralose, salt, vanilla extract, and acesulfame K.

This Portland-based pop company makes a rather delicious root beer. It’s quite sweet, from both the honey and the sucralose, but the major flavour actually comes from the vanilla. It’s rather strong. If you’re a fan of vanilla, you’l like this root beer, I think. I personally think it’s a bit too strong.
