Lester’s Fixins Peanut Butter & Jelly Soda

Is there anything more classic than the peanut butter and jelly sandwich? According to Wikipedia the average American will eat 1,500 of them before graduating high school and I can only imagine that high school dropouts will eat considerably more. I have to say, the weird pinkish color freaks me out a bit, kind of like an unholy combination of grapefruit and Pepto Bismal.

The taste is even harder to describe, there's certainly a sweet fruityness to it. However I'm not sure which fruit they are attempting to replicate, I think it's strawberry, but for all I know it could be grape. The peanut butter flavor at the beginning is weak, but it becomes more obvious in the aftertaste. The more you drink the more all the tastes build up, you really have to drink most of the bottle to get the full effect and once you do the taste will linger for a while. Almost like its sticking to the roof of your mouth. It's not bad, and I certainly wouldn't mind drinking it again, but past the novelty factor (my favorite factor) I really can't see anyone deciding this is their favorite soda.
