Evaporated soda? WTF?

Today I was taking one of those paid online survey things and one the questions asked about food products I have purchased in the past 3 months and one of the items was evaporated soda.

Have I been living under a rock for the last 27 years? Seriously, WTF is evaporated soda? Some new product not on the market yet? And how would it be made? A vat of liquid soda is left in some temperature and humidity controlled room and let to dehydrate? I can imagine the advertising for this:

Announcer: Tired of your soda going flat a few days after you open it and watching your hard earned money literally going down the drain? Well worry no more with evaporated soda! All you have to do is add seltzer and you will have soda instantly!

I also just took a survey that asked about food purchases (but in the last SIX months) & there it was, evaporated soda. So I googled it & that's how I found your post. So six months later they're still asking about it...I wonder if anyone's bought any!

I am in the middle of taking a survey and googled "Evaporated soda". It brought me here. The question I was asked is "In the next six months do you plan on purchasing any of the following:". One of the choices was Evaporated soda.

I suspect it is a "nonexistent" choice to filter out speed surveyors or "survey bots". Choose it as an answer and you will be rejected.

I fear Dennis is right. Too bad. Was looking forward to exploring the vast evaporated soda conspiracy. Darn.

I remember calling the number they provide on the website, just to be a smart ass. I don't exactly remember the exact response I got, but it was something along the lines of "its just a mistake." But what Dennis said makes more sense, LOL.

I must be taking the same survey! Stopped to google "what the heck is evaporated soda?"

It must be a disqualifier question to see if you are paying attention.
