Filbert’s Red Raspberry Review

Filberts Red Raspberry

Welcome to our first indie soda pop review featuring Filbert’s Red Raspberry. Miss is really sensitive to taste and texture, like a lot of other autistic individuals. So, we made reviewing local and indie sodas her fun job. Our neighborhood Macey’s store has a great selection of pop that’s new to us and we’re hoping to you too. Do you have a favorite, amazing but hard-to-find soda?

Filbert's gets a 4 out of 5 "fizzies" for its surprising taste!  

If you swallow a sip full  down quickly, it tastes more, well, deep, without much sweetness or tartness, but if if you hold it in your mouth for a while, you'll taste raspberry sweet-sourness. My fave part is the tart part that comes from holding the sip in your mouth. My least fave part is probably the darker, more bitter part from swallowing sips more quickly.

So, Who's Filbert?

Filbert’s actually refers to the Filbert family. This family-owned Chicago area soda pop company has been perfecting the art of all things that bubble and fizz for almost a century now. George Filbert started out as a milkman in the early 1900’s.

Once prohibition was in full swing, the Filbert’s started making root beer. George’s son, Charlie Filbert, created a unique “draft style” root beer recipe. In no time, they had orders for delivery throughout the midwest.

Did You Know?


Some of our younger readers might not be familiar with the term “prohibition“. Prohibition was a brief time in US history, between 1920 and 1933 when it was illegal to make, move, or sale alcoholic beverages like beer and wine. This affected many people who made, sold, or transported alcohol for a living, including the family of Theodor Geisel aka Dr. Seuss. Seuss’s father and grandfather were both brewers. They ran the Kalmbach and Geisel Brewery which folks in their community nicknamed “Come Back and Guzzle.”
