I will be back to that store!
Sunday night, I cracked into my stash. I started with a Simpson Spring Root Beer with a distinctly baby blue cap:
Brand: Simpson Spring Root Beer.
Origin: South Easton, Massachusetts.
Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.
Review: Nice and smooth, but a little too much anise aftertaste for my taste. Good carmel flavor.
Score: 7 out of 10.
