POP OF THE DAY: Pangleheimer's Diet Hot Ginger Ale

Category: Ginger Ale
Ratings (out of 5)
Taste: 2
Fizziness Factor: 3
Bottle/Can Design: 3
Availability: 2

Tasting Notes: Things I like about Pangleheimer's Diet Hot Ginger Ale: 1) The name. 2) The fact that its creators, the Pangles, feature their dog Teddy Bear on the bottle and their website. Things I don't like about Pangleheimer's: everything else. It smells like hair dye and unlike, say, Bundaberg, which gets it heat from real ginger, Pangleheimer's tastes like some trickster tossed a pinch of cayenne pepper into each bottle. It's heat without flavor. And now if you'll excuse me, I need to go drink some chocolate milk to cleanse my palate. (Total Score 10/20)

Suggested Food Pairings: Strawberries and cream Lifesavers, garlic mashed potatoes

I think full disclosure is required here about your lack of enthusiasm for diet beverages as a whole. Is this why you gave it a forgving 10 or could you be partial?

This was me trying to be open-minded, and what do I get in return? A bottle full of yuck. Last. Diet. Soda. Ever.
