    strawberry flavored soap, isn't the one that originally came with the bottle

    (Referring to liquid soap squeezed out of a dispenser) Child: Why is it pink?

    Parent: Yes, it's not white anymore because it isn't the one that originally came with the bottle. When we used it up, I refilled it with something else. And the reason it's red is because the soap I refilled it with is strawberry flavored. And strawberries are?

    Child: Pink!

    Does "It's not white anymore because it isn't the one that originally came with the bottle. When we used it up, I refilled the bottle with something else." sound natural?

    Do you call it strawberry flavored?

    Yes.

    No, absolutely not. That makes it sound like something you could drink! Say strawberry-scented.
