Jones Soda The Guild Limited Edition 6-PackVork Green Apple Soda Drink

I would think green is applied to money in this case if you want to relate the flavor to this character since he is the one in charge of the guild and one of his special skills is Penny pinching. There’s a lightly sweetened apple aroma coming out from the bottle with subtle tart scents and it was refreshing as well. The color and the texture were same as the regular Jones Soda Green Apple flavor soda drink and the only difference is the label on the bottle. As for the taste, the very first sip tasted lightly sweet apple flavor with subtle tart taste after swallow down the sip. After couple more sips, you could sense the apple flavor in more depth, but it wasn’t that strong. The taste was close the taste of young apples on the tree that wasn’t ready for picking. When your mouth processes the sip, you greeted by the smooth lightly sweet taste first. Then the refreshing apple flavor with subtle tart taste at the end. The sweet and sour tastes balanced well enough to make the overall taste pleasant to drink. There’s no after taste for this Vork Green Apple Soda.

Jones Soda The Guild Vork Green Apple SodaZaboo Blue BubbleGum Soda Drink

This character was quite funny if you’ve seen the show on the web. One of his special skills in real life (The Guild show) was friendly stalking and it cracks up when he showed up in Codex’s place with his luggage. Not sure why Jones Soda picked Blue Bubblegum flavor for Zaboo, maybe because he got blue ….. since he wanted Codex so much. Anyway, there’s definitely a bubblegum aroma coming out from the bottle when you twisted open the cap for the first time and the aroma was mild compares to the Green Apple flavor soda. The color and texture looked like hand wash soap or the original mint Scope mouthwash. As for the taste, the very first sip tasted just like bubblegum. The flavor was smooth and pleasant to drink. It wasn’t overly sweetened and it’s just right for the taste. After chugging down half of the drink, you could sense that there’s a subtle tart taste at the end after you swallow down the sip. The taste reminds of me the Double Mint Gum that I used to buy back in the days. There’s no aftertaste for this Zaboo Blue Bubblegum Soda.

Zaboo Blue BubbleGum Soda DrinkBladezz Cola Pure Cane Soda

Not sure how to relate this character to this flavor, but I guess Bladezz drinks Cola all the time while gaming. His special skills being douchey and hair flipping makes me laugh as well after seen the show because it was some what true. The cola aroma smelled a bit dark in a way when it comes out from the bottle after you busted open the cap. The color and texture were same as other cola drinks with exception of a bit less carbonation. The sweet taste wasn’t that sweet even though it used 40g of sugar for one bottle. The drink itself was smooth and pleasant to drink. The cola flavor was light with light sweet taste. There’s a subtle bitterness at the end after you swallow down the sip over period of time. There’s no aftertaste for this Cola soda.

Bladezz Cola Pure Cane SodaClara Berry Lemonade Soda

It’s funny how she freaked out when one of her kids pull the internet plug. She drinks while having fun killing her guild leader and I guess that’s why her special skills are drinking and having fun. There’s a light berry aroma coming out from the bottle when you open it for the first time and there was no sign of lemonade scent what so ever. The color of this flavor was not close to any berries that I’ve seen or known before and the texture was the same as other soda drink with exception of oily surface on top of the drink. As for the taste, the first sip tasted sour and there wasn’t any flavor that you could detect immediately. After couple more sips, it still tasted strong sour and the berry flavor was very subtle. As you drink more, you could sense the lemonade flavor as well but only for short period of time. After chugging down half of the drink, the throat becomes uncomfortable because of the taste. The sweet and sour taste was not proportional and it left mild dryness feeling in your mouth for the aftertaste.

Clara Berry Lemonade SodaTinkerballa Grape Soda

Her special skills are accessorizing, mega-bitchery, obsessive secrecy and creative profanity. How grape flavor relates to this character? I’m guessing the term “Sour Grape.” Upon busting the cap, there was a pop sound and the grape aroma coming out from the bottle was refreshing. It smelled just like the grapes that you use for making wines. The color of this grape soda was obviously purple and the texture was just like the previous flavors. As for the taste, the first sip tasted lightly sweet and with subtle grape flavor after you swallow down the sip. There was no tart taste and the sweet taste was light. After couple more sips, the grape flavor becomes more appealing and it tasted awesome. The grape flavor balanced well with the sweet taste and it’s probably the best flavor among the whole pack flavors. After chugging down half of it, the taste just keeps on getting better. There’s no aftertaste for this grape flavor soda.

Tinkerballa Grape SodaCodex Strawberry Lime Soda

She is the main character for The Guild show and her special skills are choosing the wrong guy ineffective team-building, classical violin, panic attacks and worrying. There’s a scene where she puked on the stun man’s cheat and it was funny. Why strawberry flavor? I guess she is the sexy Priestess. The strawberry aroma coming out from the bottle was lightly sweetened and mild. The color for this flavor was in bloody red and the texture was the same as other flavors. As for the taste, the first sip tasted lightly sweetened and there’s no strawberry flavor at all. After couple more sips, you still couldn’t sense the strawberry flavor. The drink was smooth and easy to drink. The strawberry flavor wasn’t that obvious even after chugging down half bottle of the drink. It tasted sort of like strawberry candy. By the way, you couldn’t sense the lime flavor as well. There’s no aftertaste for this flavor.
