While the cakes are cooking, make the glaze. Heat the soda in a small sauce pan over medium heat until simmering. Whisk in the powdered sugar. Spoon over the hot cakes.
Now for the review…the overall review was that some flavors were okay some were a fail, and they were not worth the cost (about $6+ for a six pack). The sodas all had an after taste that we just didn’t seem to care for, I don’t know if it was the stevia or what. I feel like if you are a true soda drinker, you will not like these. If you don’t ever drink sodas then you may enjoy them, they are sweet, wet and carbonated. All have natural caffeine (except the caffeine free ones). Now if you are like me, I don’t drink a lot of sodas but occasionally I do crave a dark soda. My usual go to’s are Dr. Pepper, Birch Beer, or just a diet Coke. These sodas aren’t able to fulfill those cravings.
Here is a quick run down on each flavor we tried…
Cola – we all though it seem flat and watered down
Dr. Zevia – not anything like Dr. Pepper, so don’t get confused.
Mountain Zevia – to drink, Fail. To cook with great.
Grape – that one was pretty good, but it did taste a little like medicine
Black Cherry – We liked this one, it still had the after taste but I would drink it if some one handed it to me.
Lemon-Lime – uh, could take it or leave it.
Grapefruit – personally this was my favorite, it was refreshing
Orange – we never actually opened it. Sorry.
Caffeine Free Cola – same as the cola
Ginger Root Beer – this one was disappointing, it smelled really good but the flavor was off.
Ginger Ale – this one was ok, but I was expecting the bite you get from a real ginger ale (like Reed’s)
Cream Soda – same as the root beer, disappointing. Only my husband seemed to like this one.
So if I had a really good coupon, I may purchase one or two of the flavors but if I want a soda, I want a real one, one with all that syrupy goodness. I know that is awful, but oh well.
