POP OF THE DAY: Limo Lemon

Category: Citrus soda
Ratings (out of 5)
Taste: 4
Fizziness Factor: 4
Bottle/Can Design: 4
Availability: 1

Tasting Notes: Yesterday I ate lunch at Kilikia Grill, a four-table Armenian restaurant in Glendale, and I couldn't reist taking a Limo. The giant-shoed, backward-hatted, skateboarding rabbit on the bottle is just the sort of "look, we are of America" touch that connoisseurs the world over have come to expect from the makers of Kotayk beer. Limo was tangy and not too sweet, with a minor metallic aftertaste—it was only when I looked at the bottle that I realized it was sweetened with aspartame. The overall soda experience was good enough that I would certainly seek out Limo's tarragon flavor. (Total score 13/20)

Suggested Food Pairings: Armenian chicken kebab with hummus
