Fresca Toronja

Fresca Toronja

Well I just find this amusing. Fresca in the US is a low calorie soda. While there are other flavors the “normal” or original flavor is grapefruit. That’s not funny at all on it’s own. What makes it interesting is that normally pop from Mexico is made with cane sugar, yet for this well known “diet” grapefruit soda they decided to sweeten their version with high fructose corn syrup. Way to take things in t’other direction.

It tastes just like a non-diet American Fresca would. It’s a smooth grapefruit soda. That is slightly blended with orange and lemon. Those other fruits help to minimize the harshness of its contemporaries like Squirt. It’s got a nice flavor and due to them being smart asses and using a different sweetener that isn’t low calories, makes me have a bit of respect for them. That alone makes me give this a slightly higher rating.
