Mighty Swell Rocket Pop-3Mighty Swell Rocket Pop Spiked Seltzer Will Put you into Orbit

You never know what’s going to inspire a new idea in the food industry. In the ice cream market, Ben & Jerry’s has long been known for its creative concoctions inspired by everything from rock icon Jerry Garcia to political personality Stephen Colbert to the band Phish to the Tonight Show to watching Netflix with a date to monkeys eating bananas. In the fast-food market, the inspirations include Batman shaped pizzas at Little Caesar’s and a whole Louisiana-kitchen fried chicken chain named after Gene Hackman’s character Popeye Doyle from the film The French Connection. According to the Keep it Weird packaging, one of the latest oddities to hit the news, billionaires racing to join astronauts in space, inspired Mighty Swell Rocket Pop Spiked Seltzer. Although the inspiration might be odd, one thing’s for certain, the taste is out of this world.

Blast Off

When you judge a hard seltzer there are many things to consider, one of them being the carbonation level. Too much carbonation and it can diminish from the enjoyment factor of a beverage, particularly a hard seltzer. On the other hand, a hard seltzer without enough carbonation is going to taste flat and unappealing. You want the carbonation level to add a certain zest to the overall drinking experience. That’s exactly what you get when you crack open a can of Mighty Swell Rocket Pop Spiked Seltzer. In fact, the bubbles might even remind you of a space blast off. Another ideal factor is that it has a respectable alcohol content without a heavy calorie penalty. This hard seltzer has a very nice 5% alcohol by volume (ABV), while registering at only 100 calories per can.

Rocket Fuel

The true test of if a hard seltzer is going to propel you to the stratosphere comes down to its fragrance and taste. The scent of this powerful can of rocket fuel is titillating with clear tones of citrus. As the fragrance tempts your nostrils, your mind will clearly picture the juice running down the side of a fresh cut lime. As finely fragrant as Mighty Swell Rocket Pop Spiked Seltzer is, what truly will fire your jets is the distinct fruit flavors that come busting through. A brilliant raspberry flavor smacks you right away, it is sweet yet mouth-puckeringly tart. It provides an invigorating flavor journey. Next, the authenticity of real pomegranate essence blasts you through the ozone layer. You can taste the freshness of the fruit as if it’s the real thing. Finally, a faint whisper of lime brings the experience home with a solid landing.

Dark and Mysterious

Mighty Swell creates their unique flavor of Rocket Pop Spiked Seltzer using a recipe of purified carbonated water, alcohol, natural white grape juice from concentrate, citric acid, natural flavors, and potassium citrate. The result is an excellent gluten-free hard seltzer that is dark and mysterious like the far reaches of space. Packing 3 grams of total carbohydrates and 3 grams of sugars, this tart berry drink is packed full of authentic fresh fruit flavors – most notably raspberry and pomegranate. There is also a hint of lime that gives the space worthy hard seltzer a little extra lift off. Start the count down to your next weekend get together by stocking up on a supply of this daring hard seltzer. It will put you into a friendly orbit.
