Bottoms Up at Tia Betty Blue's

When it comes to soda options, there's only one option for me. I'm a Diet Dr. Pepper fan all the way. If it's available at a restaurant, that's what I'm going to choose, guaranteed.

But while dining at Tia Betty Blue's today, I decided to live a little on the edge.

You see, TBB has got one of the largest selections of various pop flavors, ranging from your expected cream and fruit options to some far more adventurous choices.

Today I decided to go way out of my comfort zone and try a Peanut Butter & Jelly flavored soda.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Soda
Would you try a PB&J soda?

I had really high hopes for this drink choice. I'm not sure what I was thinking. It tasted just like an over-sweetened, liquified, carbonated PB&J sandwich. But the only way to find out if you like something is to try it, right?

To wash out the sweet and nutty aftertaste, I picked out a second soda. This time I chose a considerably more conservative choice by plucking out a guava-flavored soda from the fruit drink section.

Made in Australia. That explains the kangaroo.

This one went down much smoother. It wasn't too sweet, despite having real cane sugar, which was a welcome surprise.

Lesson learned: Don't be afraid to try anything at least once. You can always chase it down with something better.
