Limited Edition Cherry Apple Cobbler Juice Drink - Walmart: Berlin,NJ
Old Orchard came out with a few different flavors this season, I already tried the Apple Pie version, reviewed here, and I wasn't too impressed. I originally bought that flavor because I remembered hearing about a similar product from YouTuber xSparkage, but it just didn't pan out. Cherry cobbler is one of my absolute favorite desserts, and although I've never had apple in it, I can't imagine it would make me love it any less. Hopefully this "juice drink" will taste a bit better.
I already discussed the packaging in my last review, and this is laid out in the exact same way. (Just with red accents and a piece of apple cherry cobbler slapped onto it.) I like all the texturing and attention to detail in the design, but that sketch typeface just seems a bit out of place to me.
Notice anything in the pouring shot? (Hint: Look at the side of the glass.) I'm right handed, so I use my camera with my right hand and pour the beverages I review with my left. Usually, I'm quite good at it, but every once and a while I spill the product everywhere. This was one of those times, my photo-box was a cherry colored crime scene, but I have to say this sloppy photo is rather dynamic. I actually really like it. Maybe I should get messy more often.
The liquid smells sweet and fruity. Since it was so red I expected the cherry aspect to be stronger than the apple, but both fruity scents are present, and there's a hint of cinnamon. I wouldn't say this smelled like a cherry cobbler, it was kind of like a spiced fruit cocktail and apple juice blend, but I guess that's pretty much what this is anyway.
I took a sip, and I was pretty disappointed. The flavoring of this drink is very strong, but it is in noway anything like a delicious piece of cobbler. This tastes like really sweet apple juice, more-so the concentrated kind than fresh pressed, and it's mixed with a bold and slightly acidic cherry juice, with a dash of butter flavoring and cinnamon. Is it bad? No, it's drinkable, but it's pretty intense and very sweet.
Just like the Apple Pie version, this wasn't really bad, and with the help of some friends we easily polished off the bottle, but it's not something I would buy again. It doesn't taste like cobbler, the apple and cherry flavors are pretty concentrated, and the "cobbler" aspect just doesn't live up to it's name. I don't think this is something any of you need to run out and buy, or stock-up on, but I bet that those of you who do drink fruit cocktails and apple juice quite often might enjoy this for a change of pace. If you give this a try, let me know what you think.
