this company intrigues me. they are doing stuff i just did not think very possible. they started a root beer restaurant. not just that, they franchised it and have like 5 or so locations. and they still exist, at least when i write this, a couple years after starting. plus they have 5 of their own sodas, three root beers, a diet and a sarsaparilla. very interesting indeed.
and a very tasty soda too. intriguing also i must add. the taste is very varied, it changes completely from hitting the tongue until several seconds later. the start is a pretty regular root beer taste, but then it is a little sharp, lots of carbonation racing to get down your gullet first and scraping up the back of your mouth. as the bubbles pop and disappear it slowly fades into a rich and smooth vanilla taste. i like it. upon first taste, i loved it but as i drink more i think it is an excellent root beer but not quite an amazing one. they have set the bar high though for their other offerings, i hope they live up to expectations.
for a place that so prominently displays their website and junk, you would think they would be more prepared to handle mail order requests but it was a bit of a challenge to try to get some. plus they had no list of what sodas they had so they asked me to send them the list of what i had had. i did and the next time they called they were rather amused and said they don’t have anything else for me. oh well. so i traded with Jon to get some.
i also find it funny that the ingredients say “natural and OTHER flavors” (emphasis mine). ok, so it is other than natural, so it is artificial, right? i guess that is something they want to avoid on their labels though. oh well.
