Review of two great sodas, Double Cola and Ski soda from one awesome company, The Double Cola Company
Disclaimer: Double Cola sent us a few samples to try in return for our honest review. Our purpose at Southern Food Junkie is not to tell you a product is good or bad but simply to share with you a brand you may not have heard of before.
It seems like the late 1800’s and early 1900’s was a booming time for soda. Equally important is nearly all of the sodas created at that time were created in the South. The South has contributed many unique foods, snacks, and drinks throughout the years so it is no surprise that after all these years the South is still the King of Sodas. One Soda company that is still making awesome soda from that era is Double Cola Company. This is the review of Double Cola and Ski Soda.
The company has changed hands a few times throughout the years but their legendary taste has stayed true to its roots.
Double cola got its start in 1933 in Chattanooga, Tennessee but according to their website, their history starts a decade earlier than that. In 1922 The Good Grape company was formed to market their Grape soda. It was not till a few years later that they developed their cola recipe. The company has changed hands a few times throughout the years but their legendary taste has stayed true to its roots. Along the way, they added a few different flavored sodas but one has stuck and developed a huge following, Ski Soda.
Ski soda was not too sweet, especially when compared to other citrus sodas like Mountain Dew or Mello Yellow.
Ski Soda is a citrus flavored soda with the two main flavoring being lemon and orange. This combination creates a unique taste not seen in any other soda on the market today. The lemon and orange offer a unique flavor combination in a soda with a light carbonation. Some would even say it tasted a little on the flat side but I would not say that it was a bad thing. Ski soda was not too sweet, especially when compared to other citrus sodas like Mountain Dew or Mello Yellow. If I had to compare it to another soda I would say it was closest to Mello Yellow but still had its own unique flavor.This is why Ski Soda is so popular in its market of Tennesee and Kentucky.
Double Cola had its own unique cola flavor different from Pepsi and Coke. Double Cola was not as sweet as Pepsi and in my opinion was more comparable to Coke. I tend to like Coke better myself and really enjoyed this cola. It has a moderate carbonation which I tend to also like. I particularly do not like a cola that burns going down. An example of this would be some of the store brand colas like Sams Cola. Whew, that stuff burns.
