strawberry I love strawberry flavor. Whether natural or artificial, strawberry is one of the best flavorings. My favorite yogurt is strawberry. When it comes to candy, you can usually count on that I am going to like the strawberry flavor. But when it comes to strawberry soda pop I haven’t found a lot of great ones. Faygo Redpop and Towne Club Strawberry are both good strawberry sodas but are lacking something to make them 5 star drinks. But recently I got a hold of two more strawberry soft drinks: Fitz’s Strawberry Pop and AJ Stephens Wild Strawberry. I did a side by side taste tests with these two flavors, below are my results.

AJ Stephans Wild Strawberry AJ Stephans Wild Strawberry
Considered to be New England’s premium line of soft drinks, AJ Stephans makes a wide variety of flavors from black cherry to lime rickey. I have had their sarsaparilla in the past. Their drinks are sweetened with pure cane sugar. Their wild strawberry is something to be proud of. It has a deep red color to match it’s deep flavor. It’s nicely carbonated and very flavorful. The drink is good from the first drop.

Fitzs Strawberry Pop Fitz’s Strawberry Pop
This one I bought directly from the source. Fitz’s pop is made on the Delmar Loop in St. Louis, Missouri. They have a restaurant on site, where you can watch them bottling their soda pop. Their strawberry pop is light pink in color. As you take a sip, it tastes good, but as the drink lingers in your mouth you realize that is beyond good. A delicious strawberry pop that is perfectly carbonated.

5stars Who is Worthy of 5 Stars?
In my rating system, a 5 star drink means it is top of the line. It’s a product I would go out of my way to get again. It was a tough choice to pick a winner between Fitz’s and AJ Stephans. They were both good in their own ways. AJ Stephans had more of a fruit punch taste to it, while Fitz’s had more of a strawberry candy taste. But I have decided to only give 5 stars to one of these drinks

5stars Fitz’s Strawberry Pop

4stars AJ Stephans Wild Strawberry

While AJ Stephans was good and I would definately drink it again, Fitz’s was slightly better. I liked the carbonation a little bit better. Fitz’s also leaves you will a taste in your mouth that is very enjoyable. So for those two reasons, Fitz’s wins and it awarded 5 stars.

Where to Buy
