One of my passions in life is snack foods and I have a super soft spot for wacky flavours — especially when it comes to soda pop. So we’re going to be home to a new column: Grapples to Oranges where I review wrestling branded snacks, merch and other oddities both old and new much to your delight and, hopefully, mine.
Thankfully, even though I have come here to chew bubblegum, kick ass and eat snacks, I am not all out of bubblegum. I’m actually chock full of Rowdy Roddy Piper’s …all out of bubblegum soda by Rocketfizz. And no wonder the man’s out of bubblegum because it’s all in this damn bottle (and in the bags of bubblegum he’s selling to go with it).
I obtained a bottle when I was out visiting DoubleCakes and she brought me to a BevMo. Canada doesn’t have a chain that’s quite the land of fun sodas like that, so I felt like I was in the Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory of pop shops. Luckily, I was able to snag the LAST bottle of Piper’s soda off the shelves. I somehow held out the entire week and saved this soda for last out of all my choices. It was quite the shock to me how much it tasted like gum, although it was brought to my attention it is in the name and my reaction may have been a bit much.
So, snag yourself a bottle to try for yourself, or at least watch this painfully awkward ‘commercial’ that they made to promote the product:
