All That Glitters Is Not . . . Chocolate?

Chocolate soda . . . sounds odd right? Well that's what I thought at first but it makes perfect sense if it is introduced along with its siblings from the flavor family tree: cream soda and the egg cream. Suntory's Chocolate Sparkling is basically a bastard child of cream soda dressed in chocolate flavor instead of vanilla. The aroma is rich and chocolaty while the flavor is deep and throaty with a surprisingly long aftertaste. The glittery bubbles kick in at the end contributing to its crispy finish. The result is another chocolaty flavor success for Japan and I plan to pick up another bottle of this bubbly to use as the foundation for a vanilla ice cream float.
