i believe this is a house brand of Pops66, they seem to have contracted to have it made for them. i suspect i may have gotten a bum bottle though as there is no carbonation whatsoever. either that or it was sitting around awhile before it was sent to me as i have not had it all that long at all. truth be told, i am doing reviews a good deal in advance of when they actually appear on the site as i have so many in queue right now. so i prefer to drink them quicker and space out the actually appearance for the future instead of having a whole load of em at once then nothing for a long time.
this drink is decent. the flavor is a slight variation on the usual root beer deal, a little bit fruitier i would say. it is rather sweet too but just below being overly so. but that lack of carbonation seems to really do it in, i need those bubbles and that fizz. the foam and the froth. it is not here at all. and that makes it just ok to me. if i can i will get another bottle of this brew and perhaps re-rate it as i think it should be better and probably is, yet i have nothing to go on except the one bottle i have so i can’t know for sure. alas.
i never quite know how i feel about the non-twist off cap either. on the one hand it is rather annoying, especially if i am out at a store and then wait to drink my soda after leaving and i have no way to do it. bottle openers are not all that ubiquitous these days. especially in savory establishments. but i like the feel of the bottle this way more, very smooth. plus i have a bottle opener at home and in my work bag so that covers most places i drink sodas. overall i guess i am more opposed to them than for them.
Ingredients:carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, caramel color, citric acid, natural and artificial flavor, sodium benzoate (preservative)

I drank a bottle of this with a burger and fries at Pop's and found it enjoyable yet basic in its flavor.

This one was ok. Honestly it could have been a 2 liter store brand. I gave this a 65
