The Kel Project - Soda One

The first soda I tried was...

which was...

Boylan is a family company out of New Jersey that is very proud of the fact that they still make their sodas the old fashioned way - like using cane sugar and glass bottles. The orange flavor is fairly new though, it was created in 1997. From 1891-1995 Boylan only made Birch Beer, when they came out with a black cherry and ginger ale soda, which are now part of the "Bottle Works" brand, as this soda is. Other flavors of "Bottle Works" include, grape, creme, and orange creme. And now they have many other choices of drinks to chose from, including, diet drinks, organic sodas, and natural seltzers.

I liked this little detail, of "Sun" and "Shine" on each side the bottle.

Sadly, this soda did not taste very good. I looked at the ingredients and some of the main ingredients are mandarins and tangerines. It was very very sweet, like drinking the juice that's left in a can of mandarins. A little too sweet for me, drinkable but I don't think I'd get it again.

It was a really fun experience though, so I look forward to learning about the next 11 sodas. :)

Great first "Kel Project" post, I really liked it and love the whole idea. Can't wait to read more. Sorry the first one wasn't very good though. Hopefully the next one will be better. :)
