Flavor: Ponchatoula Pop Rouge
Brand: Swamp Pop
Made In: Lafayette, LA
I found it at: Mass Street Soda
Claim to fame: Cane Sugar, seasonal flavor. From their website ‘Sweet Ponchatoula Strawberries are the official fruit of Louisiana, and it’s no wonder since Ponchatoula, Louisiana is the strawberry capital of the world! Swamp Pop Ponchatoula Pop Rouge captures the essence of this deservedly famous fruit at its sweet, juicy, fresh-picked peak!‘
My thoughts: When I was a kid I LOVED strawberry soda. The generic kind, where I could get a can for $0.25. I drank so much that I got sick of strawberry sodas, I didn’t enjoy them any more. But that is not the case with Ponchatoula Pop Rouge (red strawberry pop). Since it is a cane sugar product instead of corn syrup product, it’s not as syrupy and what I call ‘heavy’ as other strawberry sodas I’ve had. It’s also more tart and natural tasting, which makes for a more refreshing beverage.
Final summation: Delicious. My new favorite Strawberry soda. I look forward to finding and experiencing more of Swamp Pop’s favors.
