The Ginger Ale Challenge

When it comes to ginger ale pop (or soda for you other people), I’ve always preferred the local Vernors over all other brands. My dad prefers Canada Dry so as a kid, Vernors in the house didn’t happen unless I got it myself. On a whim, I picked up three brands of ginger ale that is sold locally: Schweppes, Canada Dry, and Vernors.

I ended up tasting all three and found that I really do like Vernors the best. I don’t critique consumables very well. I just like what I like but to give you some analysis I suppose that Vernors as a cleaner taste. Schweppes made me pucker up a little and both it and Canada Dry had more of a lingering after taste. Vernors also has a very noticeable vanilla taste to it.

Ugh, I’m going to have to drink 4L of so-so pop before I can finish off my now confirmed favorite brand ginger ale.

Vernors is the ONLY way to go. Of course... I'm from Michigan and grew up on Vernors so a mere sip of other ginger ales just leave me disappointed. After MANY MANY years (a few decades actually) of living where there is no Vernors to be had, imagine the "Squeee" noise that went off in my head when I found it in my local grocery store! Yeah.... I've rekindled my love affair! After not drinking soda for MANY years either, I now have to learn moderation when I want nothing more than to consume a whole barrel of this stuff. =)
