Jelly Belly Gourmet Soda French Vanilla

Jelly Belly Gourmet Soda French Vanilla

When a company who is known for making candy decides to start making soda, you’ll have to forgive me for having some reservations. Shockingly Jelly Belly beat the odds and their sodas have ranged from decent to pretty good. I had expected grossness all around with more sugar than the Domino factory. I’m happy to say I was wrong. When it came to this French Vanilla soda I expected an average sweet cream soda. What I got was something a little bit more than your typical cream soda. This actually reminds me a lot of IBC’s cream soda, which brings me back to high school where I would drink 40’s of it at parties attempting to fit in with my classmates who were getting drunk.

There is a something a little classy about this soda. Sure, it’s still pretty sweet, but it has a real vanilla flavor to it. Somehow the candy company made a soda that doesn’t taste “candied.” I fear that many people who would really enjoy this would pass it up because of the Jelly Belly label. I’d like to see a study where this and a version of this with a different label and name were sold beside each other and see which sells better. Marketing, ya know?
