Fentiman’s Curiosity Cola
Hmmm, yes. Curious indeed. I’ve enjoyed other Fentiman’s beverages, particularly the Dandelion and Burdock. This cola is a throwback to what you sort of expect cola tasted like before the big cola companies like Coke and Pepsi dominated the flavor. It’s eccentric, it’s “botanically brewed”, it’s a bit flowery; sort of what you think hibiscus might taste like if you chewed it a little… There are definitely hints of ginger, and it isn’t too sweet. Trace amounts of alcohol exist from the natural brewing and fermentation process, sort of a nice by-product of actual yeast brewing in a soft drink if you ask me.
The drink comes in a nicely shaped and “antiquey” 9.3 oz bottle. In fact, now that I think about it, the whole thing screams: niche throwback product, but their sodas are just too good to be limited to that. Give Fentiman’s a try next time you’re at your specialty store, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
