Once again, Target has cute four-packs of Limited Edition Halloween soda available. I had seen the Candy Corn Soda last year but missed out on getting some. This year, I managed to snag a 4-pack for a measly $1.49 at Target. They are made by the Jones Soda Company and since they make some great “regular” soda, I had high hopes for the Candy Corn Soda.
At first taste, it tastes just like a cream soda (which I love), but after a second there is another taste….a taste of…..YUCK. It does taste a lot like liquid candy corn and is super sweet, but it’s not good. If you pour it into a glass, it is the brightest yellow/orange drink I think I have ever seen. It looks radioactive. I thought it might glow in the dark, but alas, it doesn’t.
Target and Jones Soda also have three other flavors of Halloween soda in the same 8 oz. cans: Gruesome Grape, Spider Cider, and Berried Alive, but since those aren’t candy-related, I won’t be reviewing them (and after trying the Candy Corn Soda, I’m not sure I want to anyway).
