Even after returning from my trip to Hawai’i I can’t shake the island influence. Rocket Fizz provided me with a sample of one of their newer soda offerings, and I wasn’t about to refuse a Coconut Cream Lime Soda. It sounded amazing. Coconut and lime are two words that are hard to say together without breaking into song.
This soda has the personality of a piña colada. Not the personality of someone who orders a piña colada at a crowded bar (bartenders love blended drinks, I’m sure). I am that person.
It’s sweet, but the coconut flavor is clear and pronounced, and the lime provides a nice finish. The coconut gives it a bit of a thick cloudiness that lightly coats your tongue, but it’s carbonated enough that it never tastes entirely “sticky”. The gum acacia and ester gum probably contribute to that texture as well. This is a good soda and I think it warrants an 8.2 out of 10 on my rating scale.
To see my other reviews of Rocket Fizz products click here. There are a lot of good ones, and some pretty awful ones too. Most of the weird stuff is intentionally bad, but that’s up to interpretation. They sell a lot of their own sodas which tend to be creative, but they also stock quality sodas from soda companies around the country. Check out their website to see if there’s a location near you.
Sampled in May 2017, received as a gift from Rocket Fizz and the Indian Wells Brewery.
