Blue Sky Natural Grape Soda

Grape soda has got to be the sickest and most delicious soda of all time.  I’ve always had a thing for grape soda but tried to not drink it because well the ingredients are like a concoction of poison and more poison:

Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Natural and Artificial Flavor, Tartaric Acid, Citric Acid, Potassium Benzoate (a Preservative) Gum Acacia, Red 40, Blue 1.

See??  Yuck.

So I was a little more than excited when I came across Blue Sky’s version of heaven in a can.  The ingredients are:

Filtered Carbonated H2O, Real Sugar, Natural Grape Flavor, Malic Acid (from apples) and Berry Extract (for color).

Look at how much better the mixin’s are?!  Definitely NOT perfect but you know what, it’s soda, so this is waaaaay better.  I know I’ve said this before but I am a fan of Blue Sky when I need that liquid bubbly somethin’ sweet.  I like them for their decent sodas and for using NO artificial flavors, NO artificial colors, NO preservatives, NO caffeine, sodium free, GMO free, and NO high fructose corn syrup.  Nice.

For this particular natural soda, the grape flavor way pretty strong.  It tasted like it should, grape-y goodness.  The carbonation was okay, it could have used maybe a smidgen more but I’m not complaining.  Also, don’t mistake this for drinking actual bubbly fruit juice, because it contains NO fruit juice.  Just your typical NATURAL soda.  And as usual for this brand of soft drinks, the coloring is really light.  When you pour this bad boy into a clear glass don’t freak out that your grape flavor has somehow magically seeped out, the color is quite pale.  But it’s the bold flavor you want, not bold color right 😉
