My father often talks about how he remembers drinking chocolate soda as a child and about how much he remembers liking it. I've always wanted to try it, but...seeing as it's not exactly a common commodity these days, doing so has proven difficult. There have been weird, artificial, diet versions of chocolate sodas that I have found here and there, but none of them are very good. I found this one the other day at a local World Market, and I finally understand my father's fond memories of the beverage.
CocoFizz is a delicious soda. It tastes pretty much what you would expect a chocolate soda to taste like: chocolate. Despite not knowing what exactly what to expect going into the beverage, I found upon consumption that the flavor of the drink is very honest, and I felt kind of silly for not knowing what it would taste like. At the same time, however, the flavor has a non-descript, "generic" taste and does not taste like any kind of chocolate (light, dark, etc.) in particular, but rather more just like the cacao flavor itself. The beverage is significantly sweet, but in a good way. Honestly, it would be ridiculous to expect a chocolate soda to not be sweet.
Overall, the drink is very straightforward. It is a chocolate soda. I have yet to meet someone who does not like chocolate, and I think that most people would enjoy this beverage, as well. It seems a little strange to think about carbonation and chocolate together, but I promise that once you get over that mental hump by trying the beverage, you will likely enjoy it very much.
