I never thought that when I purchased this with my burritos, I would end up unearthing not only a Weird Soda, but also a secret communist conspiracy. But that's just the kind of thing you have to be prepared for in my line of work. *looks ruggedly silent, staring into the distance*
Where and when: purchased 3/09 at SuperTaco, Vista, CA
Color: yellow-orange, opaque, no visible sediment or pulp
Scent: strong peach scent.
Taste: smooth, slightly thick. Effectively the same as peach nectar drinks. The taste is very similar to that of the syrup you get with canned peaches, maybe just slightly tart. Pretty nice. Less aftertaste than syrup, though, with a bit more tartness. No carbonation, of course.
This is similar in many ways to the other Boing! product; a nice, refreshing fruit nectar, but nothing particularly noteworthy. Tragically, the masculine figure on the label is not a policeman, cowboy, Indian, or biker. It is a construction worker, just as on the other bottle. Rather than a stirring tribute to the Village People, it is instead a crypto-Communist paean to the power of labor. Perhaps the name of the soda is intended as a covert message to the proletariat, encouraging them to rise up (in a perky manner, I guess) and throw off the power of their capitalist running-dog bourgeoisie masters. I feel this possibility is further suggested by the fact that these bottles of Boing! lack mold codes, AKA "bottle bottom bumples". Clearly, this is intended to prevent heroic all-American agents from tracking the subversive socialist pseudo-soda siren song back to its originators.
Weird Soda Review: keeping you safe from soda based political oppression since early March.
Quaff rating: 3.0. Nice.
Cough rating: 0.5, although it may have hidden totalitarian messages in it.
