POP Water Orange

POP Water Orange

I’m pretty sure that generic diet orange soda might be the world’s worst pop. Regular orange soda has its place in the world and that place is at barbeques and accompanying hot (veggie) dogs in every capacity. Its diet counterpart belongs nowhere except down the drain. I wonder if there is a single person out there who actually enjoys it. If you find one I’d like to hook them up to a polygraph, because I’m pretty sure there are a no good dirty liar.

POP Water has attempted to make a low calorie orange soda that is actually drinkable. They have succeeded to some extent. This doesn’t have an overbearing diet taste to it, but there is still enough of it to make me feel like I’m not truly enjoying it. The orange flavor is decent enough. It doesn’t contain any juice, but it does have extracts of natural orange. It tastes like a light orange soda until you swallow and then you get the stevia/erythritol in the aftertaste mucking everything up. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. They should have just kept their limited amount of real sugar and left it at that. Any drink I’ve ever had with a zero calorie sweeter would have been better without it.

Liquid Ice Energy Drink Orange

Liquid Ice Energy Drink Orange

How is it that nearly every energy drink company that uses taurine in their recipes ends up tasting like a (sometimes delicious) chemical mess, yet Liquid Ice seems to do not much different and their products always just taste like liquid Wonka candy? With their new “orange can” flavor they have harnessed the flavor or orange Sweet Tarts. I’m not even sure if there actually are orange Sweet Tarts, but if they were to exist this is exactly how they would taste. What sorcery is involved in creating such a beverage? A friend of mine, who absolutely detests energy drinks, took a sip of this and thoroughly enjoyed it. Liquid Ice is making moves and breaking down barriers. I don’t know how they do it, but I’m glad they do.

Celsius Flo-Fusion Orange

Celsius Flo-Fusion Orange

Celsius beverages have never been known as a tasty bunch of drinks to me. The thing is that they were functional beverages that had a very specific purpose, so I tended to be a bit forgiving on the flavor side of the review. It is extremely hard to turn a blind eye to the taste of what is created when you mix this packet into water. Nothing about it, including the orange flavor tastes natural. It’s as if someone powdered toxic waste and tricked me into thinking that it would help with exercising.

If this were a normal beverage I would never have made it past a sip or two, but as I said it’s functional and helps burn more calories in a workout as well as give you a little energy boost for said workout. I’m forcing myself to down the whole glass before I head to the gym. It’s the most diet tasting orange beverage I have ever tasted, and it really better work, because you have to suffer through it.

Pop Shoppe Orange

Pop Shoppe Orange

The Pop Shoppe is a classic Canadian soda company that has had a bit of a resurgence in recent times. They tend to put out pretty standard flavors that taste, well like the standard. That unfortunately is not the case with their orange soda. Generally orange pop has a strong crisp flavor to it that doesn’t really taste like oranges, but has still managed to enchant the Western world’s taste buds. Sometimes companies use actual orange juice, but that’s a whole other ballpark of wonder. This soda tastes like neither of those things. It’s like the company got the ratio wrong of flavor to sweetened carbonated water. The orange flavor is much weaker than one would come to expect in a soda such as this. There is a flavor very much there, but the part that makes it anything similar to the fruit is in low quantity. How am I supposed to enjoy my veggie dogs now?

Q Orange

Q Orange

For you drinkers out there in the world, this is a classy way to use soda as a mixer. No longer will you have to bust out plastic bottle and aluminum cans of syrup heavy soda to mix with your liquors. Now you have a nice glass bottle of higher quality soda (or sparkling beverage for you fancy types) to mix with your adult beverages. To me everything about this bottle screams mixer, and it looks like it’s not meant to be drunk on its own. Oh but it is.

This is a mixture of the extracts of Valencia and Pera oranges, tangerines, key limes as well as pumpkins and carrots (hey why not?). It’s on the dryer side of things and isn’t very sweet (14g of sugar per serving). The flavor is lighter than you would expect from a soda, and it has a citrus taste that is heavy on the orange. I personally can’t taste the pumpkin or carrot, but I will assume that it would taste differently if they were excluded.

This is nice because it is dry and light. It’s the kind of beverage that I could sip all night at a party and not feel terrible, emotionally and physically, for doing so. In fact I did just that Friday night. This is about as classy as I get folks. It’s the antithesis of brands like Faygo. Those companies have their places and so does Q.

Fuhrman's Old Fashioned Orange

Fuhrman's Old Fashioned Orange

Oh that summer heat. James just couldn't deal with it. His 1988 Honda Accord was once nice but now is held together with hope and rust. He is a traveling salesman whose sales of motor homes on an island aren't what they used to be. He was once the best salesman on the west of the island but it seems that everyone had already bought one and there was no one left. He looked back fondly of the days where he bought that Accord in cash and had enough for a steak dinner that night. Now it's nothing but pasta and rice. Why was he still there? There were plenty of other jobs he could do and make enough to at least get him out of the rut that he was in.

One hot and humid summer day he had to take a stop from going in between towns. He stopped at a gas station to get something to drink and they were stocked with ice cold pop. He saw the orange and his hand just grabbed it. It was like the kid in him made him reach out and take it. To be a child on the island was a simpler time. All you had to do was go to school and then come home and the rest of the day was yours. No responsibility. No tasks. Nothing. You could just hang out with your friends and drink pop on the way to go to the movies and then get ice cream. As an adult, though, James was plagued with things like payments for his child's braces, water bills, and lawn mowing. He needed to mentally get back to what it was like to be a kid. One sip and he remembered it all. He sat down on a bench outside the station and drank almost the whole bottle. It tasted like simple, basic, everyday orange pop. It's what he would drink on hot summer days while sitting around with his friends not doing much of anything.

Just then his phone rang and it was Doctor Clemens asking him to sell him a new motor home. Today would be James' day at last. His day in the blistering sun.

Harmony Springs Beverages Orange

Harmony Springs Beverages Orange

Let’s see here, we’ve got Bones, we’ve got Thugs, but where is Harmony? People we need Harmony here if we’re gonna do this reunion at the Grammies! No one is interested in “Bone Thugs” just rapping “Thuggish Ruggish Bone.” We’re getting the big bucks to sing “Crossroads,” and we can’t do that without Harmony! What do you mean he’s moved out to Massachusetts to start a soda pop company? He sent us an assorted case for Xmas with a thoughtful note explaining what has been going on with him and his family? I have no time for frivolous things such as family, and I certainly don’t care that the adopted several puppies this year! Fine you got me, I read the dumb note and it left me in tears and how well his family is doing, while we’re still here in Cleveland, he’s off being fancy in Mass. Give me one of those sodas, oh I don’t know how about orange?

Gentlemen I don’t think we have anything to worry about. To put it plainly this soda sucks, and there is no way that Harmony is making enough to feed all those damn adorable puppies he’s taken in. It’s not a high quality soda. Hell it doesn’t even live up to the standard of generic store brand orange. There’s something off with it, like there’s too much sodium benzoate in it that gives it a weird aftertaste that’s not the orange flavor you want and expect. There is something about this beverage tastes chemical and off overall. It’s just a matter of time before the cost of puppy chow gets to be too much for our old friend and he rejoins us on the stage doing what he does best, harmonizing on the hits.

Robinson's Fruit Shoot Orange

Robinson's Fruit Shoot Orange

Why is orange drink necessary in this day and age? I mean Tang was important because it went to space, but normal people aren’t traveling past the stratosphere. It’s not like orange juice is expensive by any stretch of the imagination. Sure the cheaper stuff is made from concentrate and has added sugar at times, but it doesn’t have as much sugar as any orange drink, nor is it as concentrated.

I would much rather have preferred a little bottle of the cheapest orange juice in the world to this. There is only 10% juice in here, and I feel like 20% of what’s left is sugar. It’s sugar water with a slight orange flavor to it. The flavor is actually more tangerine than orange too, but in a fake sort of way.

I can’t even make it through ¼ of this bottle without getting annoyed that someone would purchase this over real juice. There wouldn’t even be a price difference, unless you went for a higher caliber of juice.

All Sport Zero Orange

All Sport Zero Orange

Orange, eh? Sir, you are under oath. Do not lie to me. You call this orange? Yes, it is the color orange, but to call this orange is pushing the extent of my patience. If you want to walk out of this courtroom a free man, you have to tell me the truth. Did you doctor this drink in any way? There, now. Was it that hard? What did you put in it? Sucralose? That's one of those artificial sweeteners isn't it? Yeah, that's what I thought. You think I got into the judge's chair by being some sort of idiot?

What else have we got here? It tastes like a watered down Gatorade if I can be so blunt. Is that what you want? A diet tasting, watered down Gatorade? You're fine with that? Sir, please. Let me leave you with these words of wisdom: Don’t be average. Be great. Average never did anything noteworthy. You may leave and please pay the bursar the small fee of three hundred and seventy dollars and have a nice day. I hope I left you with something to think about.

"It tastes like drinking an orange." Jerome said. "That's because it's just a juiced orange." Paul said. "You could just call it orange juice." he added. "You know what? I will. Now and forever, this shall be called orange juice!" exclaimed Jerome.
