another vanity labelled soda. strange how they all seem to be in New Hampshire. i suspect one of the other ones has just changed their name or something here, but i could be all wrong and this is yet another one. this is rather good too, which surprises me also. the flavor has suggestions of the usual “root beer” flavor yet deviates from that with some extra spice. i am trying to place the spice, perhaps a hint of clove with some cinnimon? the sweetness is a little too syrupy for me, but corn syrup seems to have that effect on things that are liquid.
