THE EXPERIENCE

Why I chose this snack: of all the fruit out there, melon (cantaloupe especially) is the last I’d think about adding to soda. Is it possible to mimic such a flavor? 

What worked: a Goldie Locks level of fizz. I hate when carbonated drinks have too many bubbles (as much as I love the 5 star burps I belch as a result). It also has JUST the right about of sweetness. Not sickly nor subtle. 

What didn’t: the melon flavor is artificial, but that wasn’t much of a shocker. If you didn’t tell me this was melon flavored, I don’t think I’d be able to tell what fruit it was. 

Suggested uses: use in place of tonic or seltzer in cocktails • use in ice cream floats • pour into ice cube trays for flavored ice • add to jello mix • add to cake mix instead of water
