POP OF THE DAY: Frostie Concord Grape Soda

Category: Ye Olde Soda
Ratings (out of 5)
Taste: 5
Fizziness Factor: 3
Bottle/Can Design: 4
Availability: 2

Tasting Notes: For a soda that contains 0% juice, Frostie does an amazing job of mimicking the unique taste of Concord grapes. For those of you who didn't grow up with a tiny German grandmother who grew these hardy fellers in her backyard, feeding some to the children but using most of them to make her own wine, Concords are the dark purple grapes that you squeeze out of their skin before you eat them. Frostie captures Concords' earthy sweetness AND the tinge of tartness that puts the pucker in Smuckers. Even the ridiculously purple color is right—so what if they used Red 40 and Blue 1 to create it? What any of this has to do with a cheerful elf who appears to have impaled a strawberry on his moustache is unclear, but I like the retro look of the Frostie bottle anyway. And I savor the fact that the first batch of Frostie was made in an abandoned jailhouse. (Total Score 14/20)

Suggested Food Pairings: Peanut butter sandwich, sauerbraten
