New Big Red Zero Calorie Soda Drink
Big Red! I received a package from Big Red the other day and it comes with four different tastes of Big Red from their product line. If you don’t know Big Red, “it is one of the top 10 beverage companies in North America with a history dating back to 1937.” You can find out more in here. Since Big Red Zero just came out, I will try this one out first. According to Big Red, Inc., Big Red Zero was supposed to be an update to the Diet Big Red in terms of better taste based on their new formula using advanced sweetener technology.
There’s a lightly sweet bubble gum sort of aroma coming out from the can when you open it for the first time. The color was obviously red and the texture was the same as your ordinary regular soda drinks. As for the taste, the very first sip tasted lightly sweet and not sure exactly what it was. After couple more sips, you could sense the light sweet cream taste with subtle vanilla hints and the taste that comes to my mind was that it tasted similar to bubble gum. After you swallow down the sip, there’s the so call diet soda aftertaste and it wasn’t that obvious either. However, after chugging down half of the can, the sweet cream flavor didn’t taste as strong as the beginning of tasting and I guess the diet beverage taste took over. What stays the same was how smooth and pleasant it was to drink.
The ingredients for this Big Red Zero Calorie Soda Drink include: Carbonated Water, Citric Acid, Natural and Artificial Flavors, Sucralose, Sodium Benzoate, Caffeine, Malic Acid, Red 40, Acesulfame Potassium, Aspartme, Phsphoric Acid and Acacia gum. Phenylketonurics: Contains Phenylalanine. This drink contains 30mg of sodium and 38mg/12 fl oz of caffeine.
Overall, this Big Red Zero Calorie soda drink tasted exactly what it stated on the can label “Sweet, Smooth big red flavor with zero calories.” Since I never had a Big Red before, I can’t compare to the Regular Big Red or Diet Big Red. However, if you compare it to other diet flavored beverages, this Big Red Zero should be in the top 10. To those who like red cream soda drinks, then you might want to try out this soda drink. Now I have three Big Red flavors left to review. Thank you for sending the samples Big Red!
