Lester’s Fixins Buffalo Wing Soda Review

Lesters Fixins Buffalo Wing Soda


Brand: Lester’s Fixins
Flavor: Buffalo Wing Soda
Sweetener: Pure Cane Sugar
Size: 12 oz Bottle
Cost: $1.99
Purchased At: Rocket Fizz
Flavor Notes: Orange, Spicy
Similar To: Dinner

Lester’s Fixins Buffalo Wing Soda is an interesting venture into bottling the flavors of recognizable foods into a soda. Buffalo Wing Soda has a nice orange color that’s a mix of orange soda and the color of actual buffalo wing sauce. Open the bottle and take a whiff of this soda and you’ll be greeted with an orange soda scent. The taste? To be quite honest, the taste at first is subtle. It’s almost flavorless. I was expecting an over the top buffalo sauce flavor but that wasn’t the case (which is a good thing). The taste is a little orange-like with a subtle acidity. The finish is a little spicy. The acidity and spicy aftertaste give this soda the Buffalo Wing flavor. I have to admit, after just a few sips I had to stop and was not able to finish Lester’s Fixins Buffalo Wing Soda. Compared to its sister soda, Lester’s Fixins Bacon Soda, I think that Buffalo Wing is an easier flavor to drink over the bacon one. This is an interesting flavor and is worth a try if you’re into the weird or unique.

Lester’s Fixins Bacon Soda Review

Lesters Fixins Bacon Soda


Brand: Lester’s Fixins
Flavor: Bacon Soda
Sweetener: Pure Cane Sugar
Size: 12 oz Bottle
Cost: $1.99
Purchased At: Rocket Fizz
Flavor Notes: Bacon, burnt bacon, salty, chocolate?
Similar To: Breakfast…

Lester’s Fixins Sodas are similar to Bertie Bott’s Every Flavor Beans from the world of Harry Potter. Lester’s Fixins Bacon Soda is more about the experience and novelty and less about a soda that tastes good. I’ll be honest, I was a little worried about trying Lester’s Fixins Bacon Soda. I love food, soda and heck I even love bacon but that’s for breakfast or as part of a burger – I wasn’t sure how I would react to a bacon flavored soda. The first sip was not what I expected – I swear I tasted chocolate at first – but a fake chocolate, like a Yoohoo!. If you had a similar experience please comment so that I don’t feel I’m going crazy or losing my sense of taste. After the initial taste you do get some bacon flavor but it’s not identifiable at first – in fact, if the label didn’t tell me it was bacon flavored I probably wouldn’t have been able to identify the flavor. The finish is pretty bitter and I can best describe it as a “burnt” taste with a sort of fake saltiness. I think that combination is what constitutes the bacon flavoring of this soda. I was expecting to taste outright bacon or bacon bits but it doesn’t come across that way. I’m not sure why I get a chocolate taste – should probably just ignore that I think that, but once that initial taste passes the main flavor is a pseudo salty and burnt taste which stands for the bacon. The finish is a bit bitter, it lingers in your mouth and you find yourself moving your tongue in an attempt to rid your mouth of the aftertaste. All in all, this is a pretty gross soda, but I say that with a smile on my face because after all, this is BACON soda!! If you’re into Epic Mealtime or obsessed with bacon then you must try this soda! 2-Stars because as an enjoyable soda this is terrible, :) but as an idea, no rating scale can contain the potential that Lester’s Fixins Bacon Soda has.

Lester’s Fixins Sweet Corn Soda Review

Lesters Fixins Sweet Corn Soda

Brand: Lester’s Fixins
Flavor: Sweet Corn Soda
Sweetener: Pure Cane Sugar
Size: 12 oz Bottle
Cost: $1.99
Purchased At: Rocket Fizz
Flavor Notes: Corn, Sweet Corn, Corn Pops
Similar To: It’s in a class of one

This review is of a novelty soda and although it will be ranked according to the usual 5-Star scale please know that regardless of rating this is one fun soda and definitely worth a try if you’re adventurous and enjoy novelty sodas! This review is real easy – Lester’s Fixins Sweet Corn Soda tastes like the milk after you’ve had a bowl of Corn Pops or Honeycomb cereal. It’s not a bad flavor by any means, but it is very unexpected flavor from a soda. Some sips seem fine and go down without a problem and with other sips you almost gag, just a little tiny bit; and it’s not because the flavor is unfamiliar, it’s that your mind reconciling a familiar flavor but with an unfamiliar medium. Blindfolded, you would assume you’re either eating a bowl of Corn Pops or Honeycomb cereal or that you’re eating actual corn. The soda has a pleasantly sweet flavor and aroma to it. The color is what you’d expect – a vibrant translucent yellow color. Lester’s Fixins Sweet Corn Soda probably won’t become your favorite soda or be one that you have the desire to drink often, but if you enjoy corn and are feeling adventurous then this soda is definitely worth a taste.
