Cheese Soda

Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba "The Joy of...Coolea"

There are millions of cheese lovers out there. Cheddar, Swiss, American, Brie, Coolea, Monterey Jack, Colby, Feta, Parmasean, etc. etc. etc.
They make cheese dips, spreads, fillings, snacks, cubes, wheels, logs and balls. There are cheese crackers, nips, sticks, curls and even Whiz.
But until now, there's never been a Cheese flavored beverage.
I think with so many cheese lovers out there, this would be a killer idea.
I'd say cheddar or American would be the best to market in the U.S. Aged, mild cheddar, corn syrup, water, citric acid, natural flavors, sodium citrate.
It's a simple recipe. Carbonate, bottle and sell. People would go nuts for it.
Imagine it's a hot summer day. You come in from mowing the lawn, sweat on your brow, your nose itching from the flying grass clippings. Your throat is dry and you need refreshment.
You reach into the fridge and pull out...."ba ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba ba, The Joy of Coolea..." a rich, fizzy, cheesy cool drink. It tickles your nose and your tastebuds. You are totally refreshed and invigorated.
We need a line of cheese sodas.
"Ahhh. The power of cheese."

Rivella http://www.rivella....vella.asp?chglang=2
The Swiss softdrink [beauxeault] remembers. It tastes good, but nothing like cheese or milk. [jutta, Mar 12 2001]

Calpis (Japanese) http://www.calpis.co.jp/index2.html
Japanese milk-based pop. Like Rivella, not so dairy-flavored. [Uncle Nutsy, Mar 12 2001, last modified Oct 21 2004]

Information about Calpis in English, sort of. Includes purchasing instructions. (Disclaimer: I am not associated with this site in any way; this isn't spam.) [Uncle Nutsy]

"Carbonated, dairy-based beverages." Not quite cheese, but close enough to be thoroughly disgusting. [Uncle Nutsy, Mar 12 2001, last modified Oct 21 2004]

Dr. Brown's Cel-Ray soda http://www.popsoda....drbrownscelray.html
No, this isn't cheese soda-but it's another strange flavor - seems to be popular where I live...looks kinda gross to me though! [funkychunky, Oct 17 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       I wouldn't drink it but, what the hell, go for it.

       Colby Cola, Nacho Cola, Sour Cream Soda, and Feta-Up could redefine 'soft' drink.

       There's a soda drink available in Switzerland that is about 30-35% whey. It looks a bit like gingerale, and tastes similar, but I think a bit better. Can't remember the name.
beauxeault, Mar 13 2001
  

       beauxeault: do they market it like Mountain Dew?:   

       "Its' whey-cool!"

       A cheese flavored beverage? Man, now I really think I'm gonna worship the porcelain idol!

       Just about any dairy-based drink will go fizzy if you leave it in the sun for a while...

       mmmmm... cheese.

       Excellent suggestion! Have you also discussed asparagus-swirl ice cream with your venture capital investors?
zoroaster, Sep 22 2001
  

       I'm thinking cheese soda and pepper vodka. How tasty would that be?

       Close to being baked. See link.

       I always wanted to use our soda machine with milk when I was little, but my dad never let me. I found out why at a party the other day. EUGH!!

       Conceived and discussed a similar idea years ago... we came up with a name: "Fromey" - fromage/foamy. We had a few ideas for advertising as well, but ultimately we decided to go with product placement instead (make it feel more like part of the landscape than a strange carbo-dairy nooism) - having several of the main characters in a classic work of literature drink and recommend the stuff - the book was "Ethan Frome(y)" by Edith Wharton.

       This sounds about as appealing as a fish milkshake, speaking of fish......bone

       i've seen a couple dairy based drinks in the US... for a short while our local supermarket carried a line, that was basically carbonated milk + peach or pear juice. i hated it, but my girlfriend loved it.

       First there was "yoo-hoo", now there's "yoo-hoo, where's the Lu?"
