Many soda makers are out to capture the flavor of an orange creamsicle in a bottle. Minhas Craft Brewery out of Monroe, Wisconsin are among those soda makers. Their orange cream is a part of the Blumers line of carbonated beverages. It comes in a clear glass bottle, with a vivid orange color that is attractive to the eye. The saying above the logo says “Orange you glad it came from Monroe, Wisconsin”. It was sweetened using high fructose corn syrup.
This is a good drink with a nice flavor and the right amount of carbonation. The problem I have with it is that it doesn’t have much of a cream flavor. There are other drinks out there that have more of that orange cream taste (try Frostop), than this one. I personally would label this as just an orange soda. For an orange soda pop I would consider it a great one (probably 4 stars), with a hint of tartness that gives it a more true orange flavor. Unfortunately this is suppose to be orange cream, so 3 stars is all I going to give it.
Where to Buy
I purchased mine at Brennan’s Market in Madison, Wisconsin. It is also available at other stores throughout Wisconsin. I do not know if you can buy it outside the state. But you can order it online from a website that sells Wisconsin made products. Visit http://www.wisconsinmade.com/
