And here we have another soda obtained from the wonderful Tony! this was a pretty sneaky one, it was out there but had so little info about it. other reviewers seemed to get some, but just one or two bottles so never enough to trade with. the only places I could find that had it were 12 hours or more away.
to be honest I did not know who Junior Johnson was until thirty seconds ago. do most people? I mean, is it like if i knew even anything about Nascar I would have heard of him, like Harmon Killebrew and baseball? I don’t know. I also do not know how valid the “Junior’s Original Recipe” tagline is. I mean, did the guy really have any soda brewing experience? it seems there is a moonshine made with his name too and a whole backstory there. that I can buy a little more for some reason. no matter in the end really.
this does in fact have a distinct recipe, which surprises me a bit. often the celebrity sodas resort to being generic. it is very creamy and smooth but with an unusual flavor along with it to give it a very nice zing. it is a butterscotch mixed with wintergreen flavor to me. it is very sweet, although with that much sugar I expected that. I admit, I really do enjoy this soda. it’s a very pleasant and great surprise. the head lasts forever, if you are concerned with that. so Junior, whether you had a hand in this or just hired someone, well done.
Ingredients:carbonated water, cane sugar, caramel color, natural and artificial flavors, sodium benzoate (preservative), yucca extract and phosphoric acid
