Ordered empanadas and churros for super because I was just really craving them. One of the drink options is this yerba mate soda and I remembered really liking it the first time I had it, so I added in one of those too. It’s quite good – I think I described it as an Irn Bru and Cream Soda cross the first time around, and I stand by that comparison now. I do wish I could taste a little more of the mate though…

I had no idea you could get Irn Bru over in Canada!

Not easily; but a lot of grocery stores carry it in the international aisles now and when I lived in Saskatchewan I liked a block away from a dual tea room/British food import store run by a delightful expat couple and they carried it too.

Ordered myself some empanadas for lunch yesterday, and this was one of the beverage options. I was, of course, curious how much it would actually taste like Yerba Mate and I was going to order a drink anyway, so I let it be this one.

Honestly, I was a little surprised to see it was already up on Steepster – but then I saw that it was LIquid Proust who added it in to the database, and I was less surprised. No shade, LP – just a very you thing to do, back when you were in that insane “TRY EVERYTHING” sorta mode a few years back…

I like this more than other RTD Yerba Mate beverages I’ve had – partially, yes, because it tastes less like yerba mate than some others (which are accurate, yet gross). It’s quite sweet and a little fruity – sort of like Cream Soda or Irn Bru!? Does still have a hint of smokey, herbal yerba mate though so it’s not all lost! You can’t really call this tea, but it’s tasty and a better option in my opinion than, say, Pepsi or Sprite.

It was tasty with my empanadas.

Yes, a soda. Report me if you feel the need :P
I went into World Market for the first time yesterday and realized I’ll be broke if I go there again… anyways, I found this yerba mate soda which sounded odd and decided to give it a try.

It’s basically carbonated water, sugar, and extracted yerba mate. Very strong detectable taste. Really enjoyable on a hot day :)
