Peanut Butter and Jelly Soda

Real quick announcement: A reaction video put together by my most excellent friend and business partner Angelo Mike is going to air on Jimmy Kimmel Live TONIGHT at midnight.  You can check out the video and his other work here.

You ever wonder what a carbonated peanut butter and jelly sandwich would taste like?  Of course you have, we all have.  And now, my friends, I have an answer to this most baffling question:

Carbonated PB&J converts to a pumpkin-orange color.  Everyone knows that!

This was picked up at Rocket Fizz, a really cool candy shop with unusual candies, sodas, and toys.  I actually thought this was an independent place, but this was in Santa Clarita which has approximately one business that's not a national chain.  But anyway, here's the video of the taste test with Josh in Japan and LandonWhereBrandon:  Enjoy!

It was really weird.  This stuff smells fruity, like strawberry kiwi as Landon pointed out.  The carbonation hits you pretty quickly and the after-taste is just disgusting.  It's not overpowering, but it lingers.  The company, Lester's Fixins, apparently distributes exclusively through Rocket Fizz.  According to their website, they have "6 amazing flavors": Bacon, Buffalo Wing, Sweet Corn, Coffee, Pumpkin Pie, and Peanut Butter and Jelly.  Yeah...

The novelty soda market must still be going strong because those appear to be their only products.  I used to purchase Jones Soda's holiday flavors, so it's nice to see this kind of thing again.  

Anyway, here's a blooper for you as we try to get the bottle open:
