so here is the fully sugared version of their drink! again i very much like the graphic design, well done. actually i think it works a little better on this color scheme than it did on the diet’s lighter version. i find interesting that the ingredients vary so much between the two though actually. where the diet had “natural artisan water” this one has “pure carbonated water.” there is less random stuff in this one too, no citric acid or phosphoric acid. good good. that stuff just makes me more scared of diet drinks anyway.
so on with the show, right? how is this stuff? was grandpappy’s recipe worth re-introducing to the 21st century? i’d say “yes.” it is quite good. not my ideal soda but solid nonetheless. it remind me of Kay Koola root beer actually although that may just be the somewhat similar color scheme clouding my mind. although now that i investigate a little, they are both bottled by Empire, although with different recipes. interesting indeed though. anyway, it has a rich, herbal taste that develops on your palette over time. it is definitely a soda that should be taken in slowly so that taste can be appreciated. if you guzzle it, you miss out on all of that. it starts with a slightly bitter, sharp taste than slowly fades into a sweeter, more herbal taste. creamy and rich this is not. but that might be an advantage in making a float with it. i may have to try that! so anyway, Boston, you have a solid, new/old soda, check it out.
