22 Unconventional Soda Flavors

From Garlic-Flavored Sodas to Chocolate-Infused Sodas

— August 10, 2015 — Unique
These unconventional soda flavors put an unexpected twist on conventional cola drinks. As consumers continue to demand innovative flavor combinations, brands have looked for new ingredients to use in their beverages. These unconventional soda offerings include everything from sweet citrus fruits to snack food-inspired flavors.

One of the most interesting ways that brands have been broadening their soda offerings is by looking for exotic and unconventional ingredients. These new ingredients put an international spin on traditional soda flavors. Some of these exotic ingredients include fruits such as guava and herbs such as basil or mint.

However, there are also many new soda flavors that go beyond traditional ingredients. For example, there are chip-flavored sodas that attempt to imitate the flavor of a beloved snack food. There are also chocolate-infused sodas that mimic the taste of chocolate chip cookies. While these sodas may sounds unusual, these new products demonstrate a strong consumer demand for more innovative flavor combinations.
