Review: The Pop Shoppe Hard Soda

Every Wednesday afternoon I take some time to review a product, place or experience in hopes I'll inspire someone to try something new!

I’ve been eyeing a billboard with these bad boys on it on my way to work for months now, something about them just gives me great party vibes. (probably the bright and bubbly label) Since it’s the end of the summer I felt it was time to give them a shot.

Price: $3.99

Alcohol: Vodka 7%

The lime flavor struck my interest because I thought it may be less sweet than the other options. (Knowing very well that it’s going to be sweet regardless)

Apologies for the bags under the eyes.. It's been a long week!

The verdict: … Glad I only bought one! My boyfriend took one sip and couldn’t stomach any more, I made it through approximately ¾ of the can before my tongue couldn’t take the sugar anymore. The carbonation combined with the sugar also didn’t sit well in the stomach. Sadly the last of the can went down the drain.

This experience has made me realize that I cannot do sugary drinks like I used to. No more the days where I can enjoy a cream soda on the deck in the summer.



If you have a sweet tooth you will probably love these, however if you’re like my spouse and myself… Avoid!
