I grabbed a Sarsaparilla the other night:
Brand: Big Ben's Fast Draw Sarsaparilla.
Origin: Catawissa, PA.
Purchase Place: "Minnesota's Largest Candy Store," Jordan, MN.
Sweetener: Sugar and/or High Fructose Corn Syrup.
Review: There was a problem right away - there was no "hiss" and no release of carbonation when I opened this. Something happened and it wasn't sealed anymore. I drank it, I didn't die - it just had no carbonation. The flavor was good, and it had a subtle vanilla bite. I can not give this a score just yet because it wasn't carbonated, but I'd love to try it again.
