You all must have seen the quirky drinks like clear watermelon or honeydew soda that DAISO offers right? Well, prepare your taste buds, because this Durian Soda (S$2) is the quirkiest one yet.
If you’ve walked past the fridges in DAISO, you’ve probably seen this quirky selection of sodas. Being the adventurous guy that I am, I decided to try the Durian Soda.
Open the cap and you’ll hear the hiss of gas escaping, followed by a pungent smell that did not really smell like durian at first. After a while, the familiar fragrance of durian wafted to my nose.
Upon taking a sip, a strong artificial durian flavour hits my taste buds. Together with the soda base, the drink was mostly sweet like ice cream soda with a very artificial durian taste.
I did not enjoy the durian soda at all due to how artificial it tasted. This is definitely a novelty drink and not something you’ll drink on a regular basis.
Still, durian lovers should give this durian soda a shot. It’s only S$2 and you have nothing much to lose anyway. The best part: the drink doesn’t leave a durian aftertaste. Who knows, some of you may actually like it!
