I’m not a big fan of orange soda, but I grabbed a Sunkist today. I don’t know why. It was an impulse buy I guess. It’s not exactly breaking the bank at 99¢ for a 20 oz. bottle, but now I’m stuck with an orange soda that I don’t really want. It has a sweet and tangy candied orange flavor that tastes just like every other orange soda out there, but Sunkist contains caffeine unlike other brands. Caffeine makes soda better. I’m reading the label and I’m not seeing any evidence that there are any actual oranges or orange juice in it. The label describes Sunkist as an Orange Soda flavored with other natural flavors. That’s kind of cryptic and vague, not to mention completely unappetizing. All this time I thought it was called orange soda because it tastes like oranges and has oranges in it… apparently it’s just describing the color of the beverage.
