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.

      Tastes like they bubbled diesel exhaust through cream soda. It SUCKS!!.
      (but the cream soda part tastes good). Horrible aftertaste, like after you accidentally drink somebody else’s ashtray at a party. Cool bottle though.
