it was quite an adventure to obtain this soda! i figured since i live in NJ and go to NY occasionally, and have a few friends in NYC that i would happen upon this soda at some point. but nope, i never have. so finally i broke down and just mail ordered some when i saw it was on sale. after 3 months and a few emails back and forth i still had not gotten it and got my money back. then a few months later they had it on sale again, so i emailed to be sure they will actually send it this time. they promised profusely they would so i ordered again. and this time i got it! hoorah and other excited sounds! actually i got a mixed case as i like other flavors too.
i expected this to be a pretty standard root beer. it seems that when a company makes more than 5 or so flavors, they just resort to mostly expected tastes. perhaps they are pulled in too many directions or unable to really focus on one thing at a time. and mostly i am right about that here. they DO mostly go for a standard flavor but they jazz it up a bit, in a very good way.
you know, 99% of the time, when i review a soda, it is the first time i am ever tasting it. about 50% of the time i would say that it is the ONLY time i ever taste it as i only get one bottle. so if i got a bad bottle, i would never know it. but this one i have had at least one or two bottles of already. and i don’t recall them being as good as this one! weird. i think i have one or two more bottles left so i will have to see how those go down.
the sweetness is just right on this drink. not over or underly sweet. plus there is a little bit of a herbal slap in there, enough to keep it interesting. it isn’t a-to-the-mazing but it is a solid, good soda that i would enjoy drinking at many functions. the design work reminds me of an 80s candy like Razzles or something so i would change that if i were them, but who am i to say?
