This is another Rocket Fizz soda I sampled blindfolded as part of my blind reviews. The flavor of this one had me a bit baffled, but not to the extent of my challenger. See the video below for the complete experience.

When I smelled the soda it came across as generically sweet. It was hard to identify a specific “thing” that it smelled like, and same with the taste. There was a lot going on in the beverage. The combination of flavors triggered different responses from me and my challenger. I leaned towards cookies or cookie dough, while he thought he detected banana.

In hindsight, I think there could be a banana bread element to this, because it does have a “breadish” quality. I tasted some vanilla and subtle spicing. If I had known the flavor before drinking I wouldn’t have disagreed with the label. I believe they achieved a reasonable gingerbread flavor (as long as it’s a mild gingerbread with a fair amount of frosting).

I’ll give it a 7 out of 10. Also check out my reviews of Wintergreen and Cinnamon sampled at the same time.
