I've seen these in store a few times. Wonder if they're any good.

I tried the green apple. Was okay, nothing extraordinary, just normal bubbly flavoured water.

It's nothing special, just an excuse to pay 50 cents plus tax per can for a smaller can.
The Cherry cola was good, but nothing special. The Raspberry Vanilla cola seems to be the better bet for the money, but I wish they could be 355ml cans. The price is high enough.
I have not yet tried the other two, but at that price I think I'll say I've had enough and stick with the 12 packs of regular 355ml PC pop choices.
There's a pretty good variety there too.

I tried green apple, raspberry vanilla, and grapefruit. It's okay. Nothing special. I would probably not buy again unless it's on sale.

Gave the raspberry vanilla a try. It had a weird after taste that I'm thinking was the cane sugar (or from the colouring ingredients below?).

The "No artificial colours" on the can got me curious. I checked the ingredients and the colour comes from concentrated black carrot and black currant juice.

Not a fan. Bought the green apple a few weeks ago and I still have one can left. Way too sweet for me.

Bought the cherry cola one. Pretty decent.

It's kind of expensive for 4 cans x 100 ml...I'd buy it again if it was on sale though.

Cane sugar is regular sugar, and is used in Kosher Coke. This item is not special at all, unless you're going crazy over them not using fructose in the soda.

The cherry cola can be compared to Cherry coke, maybe, but the other three have no other soda to compare to. (in taste)
Maybe Cott might make a Raspberry Vanilla 2L bottle, if lucky, but that's about as close as it gets.

I tried the Cherry cola..it is ok..prefer Cherry coke..

Best Cola is Mexicoke glass bottles (cane sugar) and then Kosher for passover coke (beet sugar) - plastic bottles.

And if you can get Trinicoke...comes in smaller glass bottles..it also uses cane sugar I believe..

I bought it for my husband - he drank it but has tasted products he liked better. He found it rather artificial tasting.

But I do go crazy over real cane sugar! I can honestly taste the difference...
Especially that delicious coca-cola from trinidad & mexico.

I'd like to try the green apple soda, but I only want one can, not four. I don't want to get stuck with 3 more cans if it turns out that I don't like it.
