This episode represents something new for Soda Tasting: our first blind tasting. What is a blind tasting? Well, basically, I set myself up to look foolish. I select an assortment of similar sodas, have someone pour them for me and, without knowing which is which and without tasting them immediately beforehand, I taste them and try to guess which is which. Inevitably, I miss the mark. For this episode, I am tasting a selection of peppers. The pepper soda genre, […]
