DRY Soda is a versatile all natural sparkling beverage made with only four ingredients per flavor, resulting in a crisp, refreshing taste that is pure and clean. The drink is also particularly low in calories (just 45 – 70 calories per 12-ounce bottle) and made with just a minimal amount of pure cane sugar (you won’t find artificial sweeteners or corn syrup in these sodas!).
All fine and dandy, but I think the real magic of DRY Soda lies in its flavor options. DRY Soda is available in seven (mostly) unique flavors : Vanilla Bean, Lavender, Blood Orange, Cucumber, Rhubarb, Juniper Berry, and Lemongrass. Definitely not your standard fare!
Oh, and the packing is super, super pretty:
To be honest, I expected a couple of these flavors to be potentially terrible (lavender and rhubarb I’m looking at YOU), but I was pleasantly surprised by the results of the little taste test I ran!
Blood orange and vanilla (the two most “conventional” flavors of the lot) do not disappoint, their flavors are pure and crisp and would certainly be appealing to, well, less adventurous taste buds. The rest of the flavors are also surprisingly palatable to even the non-adventurous. Lavender and rhubarb have a delicate sweetness to them, which don’t much recall what one might think of when they think lavender or rhubarb. I thought lavender was even a bit like a very light lemon-lime soda. I found rhubarb to have a slightly strawberry-eque flavor which was super unique and quite appealing. Juniper Berry had a very nice clean, crisp flavor, also with a subtle sweetness (one of my favorites). Lemongrass didn’t taste very lemony or grassy to me at all- the flavor was very mild, but also very refreshing. The only flavor that I personally did not enjoy too much was cucumber which coincidentally actually seems to be quite a fan favorite.
