i happen to come upon this brand in my relentless web searches for new sodas i have not tried. let me tell you though that it is such a wonderful feeling to actually find a new brand, never mind a brand that makes root beer, birch beer, sarsaparilla AND diet root beer, let alone one from which i can mail order all or any of these things. so it was an exceedingly happy day when i came upon this company’s website!
i really like the concept of this company too, they seem to have this mobile soda fountain on a wagon which they take to various events. plus they sell the whole set up to other people who want to do the same. although, to me, it seems rather hard to transport a chuck wagon with all of this stuff, it must not be so bad really.
so how is it you may ask?
the answer, dear readers, is “really stinkin’ good!” the flavor is very full and up front and strong but not overwhelming. it starts a little sharp, then the sweetness comes in with the root flavor and finally that fades into a licorice taste. i quite enjoy this and am glad i got a couple of bottles of this. i am very curious how the other sodas are and if they are all that different from this one. i mean, if i were to guess, i would call this a root beer, not a sarsaparilla, but it is a tough call.

I'm able to obtain this Root Beer in West Lafayette, IN.On the Purdue campus. The Triple XXX Diner is a historical place, and have a burger that they bread in seasoned flour before hitting the grill. It's like no other. The fountain brew is better that the bottle,IMO.

I am not a Sarsaparilla man but my wife is and she can not get enough of the Chuck Wagon "Sass" as she calls it. I like the Root Beer! We found this at a fair now we order online and by the way the kids like the Chuck Wagon Cream Soda.
