Taste Test: Thomas Kemper's Cane Sugar Soda

Taste Test: Thomas Kemper's Cane Sugar Soda

In what's become a growing trend among soda manufacturers, Thomas Kemper has recently reformulated their soda recipes and updated packaging. Instead of using high-fructose corn syrup, the new beverages are naturally sweetened with pure cane sugar.

I tasted three — Black Cherry, Root Beer, and Ginger Ale — of the company's five sodas and was pleasantly surprised by the results. All of the sodas were refreshing with typical flavors that one would expect from a craft, bottled soda company. To find out how each one tasted,

.


The root beer, with its vanilla-marshmallow smell and clear, classic taste, was my favorite. It was everything you want from a root beer — sweet and comforting. My least favorite was the black cherry. It had a strong artificial smell with a too-syrupy taste that reminded me of cough medicine. The fresh, clean, crisp ginger ale was my co-tester's favorite. They described it as a quality ginger ale that was "really good" with strong ginger flavor.

How about you? Have you tried the new Thomas Kemper formula? Did you notice a difference? Are you excited soda companies are eliminated the high-fructose corn syrup?

The root beer sounds absolutely delicious! Do they make a cola too? That would make me very happy! :)

You can also buy imported soda from latin supermarkets, they import coke and pepsi and their national brands and they are all made with cane sugar which really makes a difference in the flavor. No more watery tasting corn syrup.

I hope more companies switch to cane sugar instead of fructose.

Good for them. I try to buy Dublin Dr. Peppers in can or bottle form whenever I see them. I think they just taste better. Less of an aftertaste

The ginger ale is my favorite brand. It really tastes hand crafted and has a crisp, strong flavor.
