Pear flavored beverages are not all that common -- especially in carbonated soft drinks -- so we were very interested in trying this product. Fortunately, it did not disappoint. The pear flavor is light but has enough substance that you can actually taste the fruit flavor. The only downside is that there does not appear to be pear juice in the product, but regardless it still tastes great. Not too mention that the pear on the label gives this product a nice classy feeling.
