this soda was another one acquired on my most recent, but at this point not really that recent, root beer quest. it was actually the first place we stopped and I had planned to eat lunch here but neither of us was very hungry so I just got cookies, which is really an excellent option as well. the choice between cookies and pizza is a difficult one, although I think I would pick cookies if really given the option, all things being equal. the fellow working there seemed a little surprised by my order of like three cookies and six cans of root beer. the can is very fun and unique. I have had only a couple of other drinks that came in this sort of tall 12 oz can. oh no, I just realized this is caffeinated and it is much too late for me to be having caffeine. ug. I should have checked the ingredients first I suppose. oh well, I will be sure I take the melatonin tonight.
I do not think I have ever seen a soda with quinine hydrochloride in it. I doubt it is even to help with any cramps or anything, probably less even than tonic water in here, but still, interesting. I am not sure I would call this more sweet than most root beers, so it is curious that it is labelled as such, but hey, I am not part of the naming process for any soda, let alone this one. there is definitely a unique and intriguing flavor here, kind of like a very sweet tea with root beer side notes. I do not dislike it but it is not truly great or anything. if I think of it more as an ice tea then I enjoy it more. I suppose it should not matter what I label it as in my head or on the can, yet as a root beer it still falls a little short.
