gourmet's gallery: pathmark fruit punch soda

Pathmark Fruit Punch Soda
Pathmark, Newark, NJ

Package Notes: Dark pink can promises "tropical taste". Drawings of pineapples and cherries in the background. Drink itself is light red in colour.

What's It Like?: In the battle between the natural and artificial flavours noted on the front of the can, the latter wins. Overly sweet, tasting closer to bubble gum than tropical fruit. Dumped it down the drain after a few sips. Stains tongue but good.

Would You Buy It Again?: Doubt it. It was like going to a bad luau where everything is made out of sub-dollar-store plastic. - JB
