Sparkling chocolate soda

Last year, when I tried the Sparkling Chocolate soda from Suntory, I really liked it. Really, really liked it. But as with most limited edition drinks - this particular one was meant for Valentine's day, it vanished very quickly and all that remained was a distant (and I admit it - very fuzzy) memory lingering on my taste buds.

So, needless to say, when I spotted it this week at a local supermarket, I was quite excited.
Yay! Valentine's Day is coming. Yay! Chocolate! And - oh no! Has it been a year already?

Of course, I immediately I bought a bottle and carried it home like it was my most precious possession. Well, one of them, at least.

Once home, I immediately drank it (of course) and then, just as immediately said "oh shit! what happened to my taste buds?" The cola didn't taste like I remembered it.

Yeah, it was still sparkling and very chocolatey, just like last year. But unlike last year, the 2011 version was also ridiculously sweet.

What happened, Suntory? What have you done to my delicious chocolate soda??? It was tangy and slightly bitter last year. Dark chocolate all around.

And this year you give me this nausea-inducing, coma-producing, sickly sweet garbage? How dare you??? I've been waiting the whole bloody year for THIS???
It can't be!!!

But, unfortunately, it is. It really is.

scratches another novelty drink off her list...
