Lilt (soda)

Lilt is a Pineapple & Grapefruit soda with totally tropical taste. It’s basically a grapefruit soda, but the pineapple smooths and mellows out the grapefruit. It’s not as citrusy as you would imagine it to be. It’s better than a grapefruit soda, but it’s not a good soda. There’s nothing impressive about it, and there’s no incentive for me to ever drink it again. It’s boring. What else can I say about Lilt? It’s manufactured by the Coca-Cola Company, it has no caffeine, and it’s British so it’s hard to find in the States. And that’s a good thing because we don’t need another subpar soda taking up shelf space at the store.

Sanpellegrino Pompelmo

Sanpellegrino Pompelmo is a sparkling grapefruit beverage that’s made from concentrate and has 16% grapefruit juice. 16%! That’s like drinking three bites of a grapefruit. Grapefruit is a pretty strong flavor so I was reluctant to try this beverage, but I did, and I’m glad to say that the grapefruit taste was pretty muted. You still get the distinct grapefruit flavor, but it’s sweetened and watered down. It’s a pretty pleasant grapefruit taste. Even babies and little kids would like it. It’s not that bitter and it’s not that acidic on your tongue. It’s sweeter and more enjoyable than grapefruit sodas like Squirt. It’s a lot healthier too. I was pleasantly surprised by this drink, and I will definitely get it again.
