This weekend I stumbled across a bottle of Sidral Mundet apple soda, a Mexican and Mexican American favorite beverage since 1902. After sampling it today, I can see why Sidral Mundet has been bottled and consumed for so long!
The first three ingredients are carbonated water, natural sugar (which can be hard to find these days, at least on the American market) and apple juice, so this is not one of those fake apple sodas (although if you read through Bubbles and Foam, you will see that I like some of those fake apple sodas too.) To me there was less of an apple taste and more like a hint of natural grape to it, but it was a light soda, not too syrupy or overwhelming.
The drink continued to fizz in my mouth with every sip, a fun effect that made me feel like I was drinking Pop Rocks (albeit naturally flavored Pop Rocks.)
I also like the classic long-necked glass bottle; I might repurpose it as a casual vase to hold a long-stemmed red or white rose later on.
Where I got my soda: North Market Pop Shop
