I opened this with my boys tonight:
Brand: W.T. Heck Waffles and Syrup Soda
Origin: Spring Lake Park, MN.
Purchase Place: Blue Sun Soda, Spring Lake Park, MN.
Review: Yes, it tastes like syrup. It's like a thin, watered-down syrup (but not in a bad way). My 9-year-old said it was a bit like butterscotch, and he's not wrong! In fact, I'd say the "waffle" flavor comes across more like "butterscotch." So if the thought of a syrupy-butterscotchy soda sounds good to you, give it a try! But for me, it was more of a sipping soda - it didn't have a bad flavor, but I couldn't chug this.
Score: 5 out of 10.
