Man, I sure do love me some cream soda. But even with my attraction towards the softest of all soft drinks, I’ve never seen blue cream soda before, just your standard gold, red, and clear, so the second I saw this at a local gas station I grabbed it and ran. After paying, of course. The guy at the counter had a gun!
Anyway, the Dad’s company specializes in recreating, or attempting to recreate, olde fashioned drinks that ruled the malt shops and drive-in theaters way back in the day, so as I’m sure you can imagine, most of Dad’s hook is nostalgia which seems to blind some people to the real quality of the drink. I was born in 1990, however, so reminiscing about my youth only brings thoughts of Pokemon, Bill Clinton, and Vanilla Ice, making me a prime candidate to present an honest review.
Dad’s Blue Cream Soda smells delicious. Very sweet and sugary aroma that kinda reminds me of Jones Soda’s Cream Soda, possibly a little weaker, which is to be expected when comparing a generic brand with aa name brand like Jones. The drink is very, very, maybe even too sweet. Dad’s Blue Cream Soda is not the kind of pop you drink to wash down a sandwich and some chips, it’s just too sugary and full. I can see it being, however, a nice soda for chilling out in the air conditioned house playing some Super Smash Bros or GTAIV.
Dad’s has plenty of value to it’s semigeneric brand. I bought the Big Daddy Size for only $1.29, and that was a pretty good deal for a liter of soda. Despite this, however, I probably won’t ever buy Dad’s again unless I’m in a very Blue Cream Soda mood. Which isn’t likely to happen.
When it comes right down to it, Dad’s Blue Cream Soda is stuck in yesterday and isn’t able to stand up to today’s standards on anything more than an average level. Dad’s is cheap, but I still am not likely to buy it ever again. I recommend people give this drink a try if they want to drink something blue, are 34 years of age, or just really like cream soda. If you’re the latter mentioned, however, you might find yourself disappointed.
