Flavor: Noble Cane Cola
Brand: Swamp Pop
Made In: Lafayette, LA
I found it at: Mass Street Soda
Claim to fame: Made with pure Louisiana cane sugar, naturally caffeine-free. From their website – ‘A traditional herbal cola enhanced with subtle flavors of plump figs, Noble Cane Cola is a delicious southern twist on an age-old favorite.’
My thoughts: When it comes to cola I am a Coke man, through and through, so I don’t try many other colas. To me, nothing will top it. But when I saw Swamp Pop has a cola, I had to try it. Their other flavors have been excellent, so I at least had to give it a whirl. And at first, I didn’t really like it. It’s very different. But a couple weeks later I popped the top on another bottle and it wasn’t bad. What I like about Coke most is it’s bite. Noble Cane Cola is a much smoother cola, without being overly sweet like the great imitator Pepsi. The herbal elements and figs also give it a different flavor. Not bad, just… different.
Final summation: It’s not an out of the park homerun for me like their other flavors have been for me, but it’s still good. If you are looking for a break from the norm, grab a bottle or two. You might just find you’ll love it.
