San Pellegrino Aranciata (11.15 fl. oz. Can)

Item Purchased: San Pellegrino Aranciata (11.15 fl. oz. Can)
Location Purchased: Sultan’s Market / 2057 W. North Ave. / Chicago, IL
Price: $1.49 + tax

Review: I don’t speak Italian, but I’m guessing that Aranciata means “orange soda” in Italy and restaurants on Chicago’s Taylor St. I’m glad I guessed correctly because, though I don’t drink pop too often, I do enjoy an occasional citrus one. This orange soda is made by none other than the fine folks at Sparkling water central, San Pellegrino. You know ‘em by the green bottle that isn’t Perrier. This aranciata was the perfect beverage to wash away the spicy falafel breath I had after stopping at Sultan’s Market. It isn’t as syrup-filled as most other orange sodas I have tried and is refreshing like a fruit juice. Since it is imported from Italy, it probably even contains fruit juice instead of laboratory flavoring like the orange McDonalds sludge I grew up on. $1.49 for an 11.5 oz. can seems like theme park pricing, but the quality of this soda is worth it. I’d hate to ever find Aranciata at a theme park. They would probably charge $5.00 per can. Epcot could pull it off. They could just have a guy dressed up like Super Mario selling cans of this stuff along with a plate of spaghettio’s outside of the Italian exhibit for $10.00. Don’t forget who gave you the idea when you do this, Disney! As for me, I will buy mine from Sultan’s Market or Trader Joe’s. Maybe I will play Super Mario Bros. Maybe I won’t.
