I like kimchi. No joke. There’s something about the brininess, and the spice, and the texture that I really dig. I mix it into rice, or eat it alongside some other Korean food. Super good on eggs as well.

Did I think that kimchi soda would taste good? No. Was I wrong? Of course not. It was horrible. One of the worst drinks I’ve ever had in my life. It coated my mouth with a weird garlic dominant funk that I couldn’t shake. What was worse were the kimchi soda burps. The sweetness added a whole new level to the amount of wrong going on in this bottle. Between four of us we managed to finish it but it ended up being more punitive than anything else.

Don’t drink this one. Seriously. It’s easily a 1 out of 10.
