Review: Sonic Splash Sodas

Sonic Splash is the chain's new, low-cal, made-to-order soda platform. I recently tried the Blackberry-Pineapple, Sunshine Berry (strawberries, peach flavor, and fresh lemon) and Hawaiian Wave (mango syrup, pineapple, and fresh lime) flavors (there's also Peach and Raspberry).

They cost $1.19 each for a small 16-oz cup, but I received them courtesy of Sonic.

Sunshine Berry was my favorite of the trio, mostly because it tasted like a toned-down, fizzy strawberry lemonade with a hint peach. The syrups are sweetened with Splenda (sucralose), which leaves a lingering aftertaste for me.

Hawaiian Wave fell in the middle for me. It mostly felt like a tart mango diet soda with random bursts of sweet pineapple.

Blackberry-Pineapple was my least favorite. I was just getting diet blackberry soda flavors with the occasional sweet piece of pineapple. The fruit's flavor doesn't really infuse the soda, but I suppose it provides variety. The Splenda aftertaste was strongest here for me, but I know some people don't even notice it.

Overall, Sonic Splash is probably a welcomed addition for people looking for more variety in the diet soda department, especially since you can have them customize it to suit your tastes. If you're customizing and looking to avoid sugar, the sweet fruits seem to have sweetened a little with sugar, but the syrups are sugar-free.
