The Original Mr. Q.Cumber Cucumber Soda Drink
Cucumber Soda! What! Is this some kind of joke? Nope, it’s made by Global Beverage Enterprises and according to G.B.E, “It’s Absolutely Delicious! Mr. Q. Cumber is America’s first all natural crisp and refreshing drink that taste like you just bit into an ice cold cucumber. This Award Winning beverage is now available in an upscale 7 oz bottle, ideal for restaurants, sushi bars, gourmet bistros and your refrigerator.” Hmm… sounds like it’s really good huh?
The package design is not all that and it’s not even close to the modern style, but those cucumber slices on the label looks pretty fresh. Upon twisting the cap, there’s a strong cucumber scent coming out from the bottle and it’s really close to the real cucumber aroma. I wasn’t expecting the soda to have real or even close to cucumber flavor. What a shock! Well, the color is light green and it’s similar to those young fresh cucumbers that you see in the supermarket. As for the texture, it’s close to those regular soda drinks that you normally drink, but with less carbonation. The first couple sips only tasted the sweetness of the cucumber soda with carbonation and with strong cucumber scent. However, it wasn’t that sweet compares to all the regular soda drinks. As you drink more, you could sense the actual cucumber like taste in the drink and gets stronger as you drink on. It tasted refreshing, light and pleasant. After your mouth processed the drink, there’s some sort of cucumber flesh kind of feeling when you swallow down the drink. Also, there’s a bit of tart taste at the end. The combination of sweet, sour and cucumber, makes it a unique taste that’s actually good. By the way, I didn’t detect any unusual aftertaste.
This cucumber soda is made using: Filtered Carbonated Water, Cane Sugar, Natural Cucumber Flavor, Citric Acid, Blue 1 and Yellow 5. Pasteurized! All Natural Flavors! For this 12 FL OZ size, it contains 120 calories, 29g Sugars, and 29g Carb.
I love this drink! I think everyone should try it even if you are not into soda drinks. It tasted like a fuzzy crisp cucumber. Also, you can think of it as a sweet cucumber. Now, if you hate cucumber, then obviously this is not for you. Maybe they should come up with an Eggplant flavor, who knows what will happen.
