This is the first time tasing a Goody soda and Iā€™m not surprised on this one. Typical bubble gum ish taste and a lot of sugar. One of these soda was a treat, but I can see a tummy ache after too many of these. I would like to give credit to the Orca Beverage on the great line of retro sodas they provide and also the stories behind their retro brands. Give there website a reading and learn some soda history. Will be trying the red and root beer soon.

190 Calories (12oz) , Sugar 47g

  • Label and Bottle Appearance: Jones standard tall clear bottle with typical photo. Twist off cap = 5.0

  • Color: Deep mystery blue = 6.0

  • Taste: Bubblegum-ish tart berry   = 3.5

  • Experience: Confusing on this one, reminds me of a science project  = 3.0

  • Notable Ingredients: Phosphoric acid, sodium benzoate and potassium sorbate (as preservatives), calcium disodium EDTA (to protect flavor.) (As I mention, it sounds like a science project)

I'm a big fan of Jones soda, but at the twist of the cap of the Berry Lemonade, I thought I was opening up a pack of Bubblicious bubble gum with a hint of cotton candy. Tasting this soda gave me that feeling as if this was a 7th grade science project and the student thru in every ingredient that was in his reach, including that pack of gum in his pocket. Maybe because I'm of an older generation, I just couldn't dig this flavor. Suggestion being have your child give it a try and get their take!
