Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a week between posts. I like to try to update this more often but since I was laid-off it’s been crazy trying to get my life in order. So please bear with me.
Cel-Ray is one of those things that is a an occasional treat for me at the deli. I seem to have it in my mind this can only be consumed with a Ruben or a nice whitefish salad sandwich with homemade pickles and coleslaw.
That I know of, Dr. Brown’s is the only brand that makes a celery flavored soda. I have no idea why anyone would even think of creating this flavor for a drink but I think it’s one of those things that people either like or really don’t like.
I like that at soon as the can is opened it smells like opening a container of celery seed. This tastes like sweetened celery, yet almost like a cousin of gingerale.
There’s just something so oddly appealing about this to me. The only thing is that it is just a smidgen too sweet, and I wonder if it were sweetened with cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup, if that would make it perfect.
Ethan felt the taste of this seemed borderline alcoholic in some way. He also thought the celery flavor was too strong and he just didn’t like it. He ended the evaluation with the description of “gross”, so he’s just not a fan of the Cel-Ray.
