i am always an optimist it seems. i look for the good in everything, assume people mean to do nice things even when they seem crappy. and i still check my local supermarket’s soda aisle for new drinks. and occasionally it pays off. although a new diet soda is a questionable payoff i will admit.
this drink is pronounced sigh-key as they kindly point out. there is a line over the ‘e’ to indicate the hard vowel sound. apparently it is named after the goddess of purity and since this has no sugar or artificial sweeteners, this is pure. i suppose stevia is more pure than splenda, but i would think it less so than regular sugar or honey, but when you want no calories, this would be the way to go. i appreciate that it has no artificial flavors, that is good.
but that is all not important in the end. the thing we are here for is how it tastes. for a diet soda, it is ok. it tastes somewhat like licking the can, that is metallic and sharp, but it adds in an unpleasant aftertaste as well! Ok, that made it sound worse than it actually is. I’ve had some vile diet drinks, this i could drink if i really had to and was dehydrated or something. but it is not nearly on the level of 99.99% of sugared sodas. but it barely tastes like root beer. i just can’t enjoy erythritol or stevia drinks, no matter how much people tell me the stuff should taste just like sugar. it really doesn’t. or else every diet soda maker has conspired to give them that weird metallic flavor and icky aftertaste outside of the sweetener used.
