View Full Version : Bubble Yum Soda

Found two varieties of this drink today in 7-11. Original flavor( I assume bubble gum) and Sour Cherry Flavor.
Opened up the 20oz bottle, and it had a strong smell of bubble gum. The Sour Cherry color is a light red.
First sip hits you with a flavor of bubble gum, and the taste of cherry. I would not call the taste sour at all. a strong carbonation, and a bit of a bubble gum after taste.
Very sweet. and I could not find myself drinking more than 2 sips.
I am certain that this drink targets a younger demographic than myself.

Coca-Cola released last September here a bubble gum/orange soda called Fanta Reven... one month later it disappeared... It wasn't good...

I'm not surprised that it did not last long!

Red Flash and Barq's Red Creme are somewhat bubble gum tasting as well.

Nasty! I remember going to a buddy's house about 6 or 7 years ago and they busted out a 12pk of Big Red. I took one sip and was done with bubble gum soda forever!

Big Red is awesome dude. Big Red Vanilla Float is even better!! You should try it if you haven't.

We all have our own tastes...and bubble gum soda just doesn't do it for me! That just means more for you guys who enjoy it!

I tried Bubble Gum soda pop when it first came out. I with out detail even though I must have chewed thousands ( or so it seemed) packs of bubble gum for little league baseball; that it tasted like the most vile slew ever known to mankind. LOL

I just did not dig it. :(

drinking a bubble yum soda right now

its really good

reminds me of this bubble gum soda I had back when I was a kid at this hot dog stand in chicagoland... they eventually closed before I could ever figure out what it was.. they called it "Bubble Up" on the sign, but it wasnt actual bubble up as that isnt a bubble gum flavored soda... right?

would love to see this stuff in cans, my guess is it will stay in 20oz and then get cancelled..

Bubble Up is a lemon lime family of soda pop that is in no way related to bubble gum flavored soda pop. LOL

I'll take a pass on bubble gum soda pop. Just not going to do it. LOL

Ah, come on Mr.Z, give it a whirl. For science sake! ;)

Honestly, most of the liquid in the bottle is still sitting on my desk. I am not certain if I should put it in the fridge, or recycle it.

Not to say it is a horrible product, but, it is too sweet for my pallet.

Usually for the sake of science LOL, I would give in to some arm twisting. LOL It's just one of those bad drink/food flashback things.

I would toss out the warm opened bottle on your desk. I would hate to see a few flies die from the fumes. LOL (Just a joke...no hate email please.)
