We recently made a trip to Jim’s Apple Farm and the largest candy and Soda Pop store in Minnesota. There we found over 100 different kinds of flavored soda, and all the candy you’ve ever heard of from the 80’s and 90’s. Stuff I didn’t think was actually made any more. We decided to try several different kinds of soda, and we’ve been testing one a day for the last 2 weeks, and today we finally got up enough courage to try Bacon Soda.
The sign above it at the store jokingly (we hoped) called it carbonated bacon grease. We decided today to give it a try. We took the top off, took one whiff and it really did smell like bacon grease, which turned my stomach immediately, but I’d come this far, I had to try it. I can honestly say that we will not be buying that again, however it was a lot sweeter than I expected Almost like a candied bacon. We passed the bottle around the house so each of us had a sip, and then we happily dumped the rest of it out.
We do plan to make a second trip to try the ones we didn’t purchase a few weeks ago. There are at least 100 different kinds, and many were somewhat weird, or unusual, but we have found some really good ones, like this Cheer Wine.
Which has a cherry coke/Dr. Pepper taste to it, only much better. Each bottle is made with cane sugar instead of corn syrup, and they all come in a glass bottle, reminiscent of the days the Coke and Pepsi came in glass bottles. So it brought back memories as well, even the ones that didn’t taste as good.
If you’re looking for something fun to do this fall, make a trip to Jordan, Minnesota and check this place out. It’s worth the drive, and a little trip down memory lane.
