Have you ever ate a chocolate cream pie and felt like it would’ve been better if you could’ve drank it instead? Probably not, but rest assured that the hardworking folks at Faygo are always thinking thoughts like that, so you don’t have to. And what’s more, they actually act on some of their zany ideas!
No, Faygo doesn’t actually sell a chocolate cream pie soda, if that’s what you’re thinking – they sell Diet Chocolate Cream Pie soda instead. Now, I realize how improbable that sounds, but it’s 100% true.
Is it any good? Well, that depends on your definition of good. If your definition of good is a calorie free soda that tastes exactly like the cream in cheap grocery store chocolate cream pie, then yes, it’s good. But if your definition of good in this case is something you’d want to drink often, then no, it’s not good.
The creamy chocolate flavor mixed with the characteristic bite of soda is just an odd, entirely synthetic sensation. I mean, I’m literally grimacing as I type this, the flavor still stuck to the roof of my mouth. And the chocolate cream pie flavor lacks any subtlety – it’s just those two basic flavors, in their most basic form.
For once in my life, I’m finding myself giving Faygo a thumbs down on a flavor. I can’t recommend this in good conscience. If to Faygo or to Fayno is the question, then no is the answer. Or, as Nancy Reagan once put, just fayno!
