Dragon Ball Soda - SunSeng Market : Pennsauken, NJ

Dragon Ball Soda - SunSeng Market : Pennsauken, NJ
Since the cans were so awesome, I had to split this review into two posts.
This one will focus on the actual beverage. Check out THIS POST to read about the packaging and see more photos. 
Out of the three cans I purchased…
  • Bulma
  • Master Roshi
  • Yamcha
I decided to drink Yamcha. (Sorry Yamcha.)
Thanks to the translated ingredients sticker, I kind of had an idea of what this soda would taste like. The ingredients listed orange as well as lactose, so I think this will be a creamy orange flavor (like a Creamsicle).
I popped the can open and sure enough, it smelled like a zesty orange soda. The “orange” scent reminds me more of a mandarin than a traditional Florida orange, and there were some sweet, sugary, notes but that is pretty typical for an orange soda. I didn’t detect any hint of vanilla or creme.
Once poured, you are able to see the bright lemon-y color. It reminds me of Stewart’s Orange ‘n Cream soda. (I used to love that soda brand.) Most orange sodas use dye to achieve that highlighter-orange-color related with the product, but this one looks more like a carbonated juice. (Although it isn’t, this has it’s share of unnatural ingredients.)
The soda has a sweet, syrupy, taste that reminds me of mandarin orange cocktail, but the lactose adds a nice creamy finish. It’s like I turned canned mandarin oranges with whipped cream into a drink. It is very sweet and somewhat refreshing with mild carbonation (the sugar makes it a bit too syrupy for me to say it is really refreshing).

I was pleasantly surprised! These drinks aren’t bad at all! In fact, I might even buy this as a soda without the nostalgia of Dragonball. It reminds me of Sac Sac, without the fruit pulp.
