Sioux City Sarsaparilla – old

this is probably the best sarsaparilla i have had in a long while. although sarsaparillas are quite hard to come by so maybe that is not really saying a whole lot. it is not as harsh as some or as watered down as others, but it has just a smooth flavour with a kick to it. it is not something i’d base my life on really but good enough that i’d get it a bunch more. this soda probably works well as a float too i’d think. and ya gotta love the cute little hankerchief on the nice embossed bottle.

    This and Sioux City’s other beverages are also purely cane-sweetened now.

    Yeah, I saw some of these the other day and they said they were made with cane sugar now.

  3. Just tried this one, and it’s pretty good. I still think Baron’s reigns supreme, yet this would be a close second. It’s an 84 for me.

  4. I Gave this an 80, I really liked it.

  5. […] a nice surprise of a soda to review once again. it was just over 24 years ago that I reviewed the old recipe so really about time to try it again anyway. I used to see this soda and the whole Sioux City line […]
