So Antiqology is a store in Indiana that carries lots of fun stuff, old things, new things that appear old, new things that are obviously new, unusual things of all eras, and ice cream and many bottled sodas. they had a special celebration in the summer of 2015 called ‘Heritage Days’ for which they had this special edition of soda made. when i head about it, i immediately contacted the store. they were kind enough to sell me some of it and ship it off to me as well! what good people. i really enjoy the design here, it has some of a 50s sort of feel to it with the old microphone (although I have no idea why that is on there), the fonts used and the general style and feel of it, with the faded colors and so on. yet it bothers me a bit that there is no ‘u’ after the ‘q.’ i felt it should be ‘Antiquology’ not ‘Antiqology’ but that is just me maybe.
after drinking this a bit, my first comment is that this has the longest lasting head of any soda in recent memory. it just stays there, all foamy and junk. it is not a good or bad thing, just a thing to note. also, as i drink more of this, the flavor seems to have completely changed. at first it was kind of harsh and pretty herbal. now, about halfway through, it is quite creamy and smooth, the harshness gone entirely. that is quite weird. the later taste is a bit more pleasant, yetit becomes sort of generic with that switcheroo. it was more unique at first. a little less pleasant but sometimes i prefer unique to pleasant.
Ingredients:carbonated water, pure cane sugar, caramel color, natural & artificial flavors, sodium benzoate (preservative)

Bingo! Unless we're talking "unique + unpalatable," the former can be a virtue.
