usually when a brand changes from high fructose corn syrup to cane sugar, the other ingredients change a little as well, or at least the nutritional info changes. but not this time. which is sort of refreshing i think. they stuck to their recipe and their product besides changing to a more (probably) healthy sweetener. I don’t really get Sioux City sodas too much, but I have a fondness for them for some reason. perhaps because they are a local brand basically and I try to support such things as much as I can.
I hear you asking “how does it taste though oh youthful and charismatic Anthony?” so let me get to that. it is ok. they have gone the route of a pretty straight up, normal root beer. the flavor immediately is sharp, which seems to be a result of the carbonation. you may have noticed I am never a fan of that action. i will let it sit a little bit in the hopes that it dies down. ok, back to it. yeah, that is better. now I can taste the sweet caramel flavor and smooth finish much better. it is like a whole different soda. still it is nothing crazy, but they do the regular flavor pretty well. I probably should get this more often, but really I don’t buy soda a lot except for reviews. this is better than your standard A&W / IBC / Barqs / Stewarts I would say and around here, not too much less available than some of those.
