Omena = apple
Limonadi = lemonade
So, the substance
in question would logically be an apple-flavoured carbonated beverage
I don't know what the people at Hartwall
were thinking, but this particular soda
doesn't even remotely
taste like any apple I have eaten. And this is no exaggeration
. The flavour
is about as far from the fruit
in question than strawberries
are from marmite
This stuff is sweet
enough to melt
in a matter of minutes, and more addictive
But what is it supposed to be?
I have come up with two theories:
1) Carbonated Maple Syrup
In my mouth the OmenaLimonadi™ tastes exactly like pure syrup, with added carbon dioxide and about 1kg more sugar per each 0.5l bottle.
2) Liquid Milk Chocolate without Milk
The aftertaste is exactly like milk chocolate by Fazer. How did they do that with no cow-produced elements?
Apparently Hartwall's business department
thought "apple soda" would sell more bottles.
Ingredients list from the etiquette:
According to the company itself, the exact recipe
is a safely-guarded secret
dating back to the days of the Viaborg Truce
. So, finding out what the bottle truly holds inside is going to take some serious skills in espionage
