Boylan's Original Birch Beer

I know that this post has nothing to do with entertainment, however when I'm watching a movie, I love me some good 'ole fresh kettle corn and some ice cold root beer! :-)


My all-time favorite root beer!

Yesterday, my wife had to pick up some things at our local grocery store - Festival Foods - and she picked herself up some Boylan's All Natural Black Cherry Soda - while she was at it, she also grabbed some Boylan's Birch Beer, for me. Now, I had never heard of Boylan's, nor had I ever heard of Birch Beer, but I tell you what ~ it is delicious!

Their description on the box reads: "This carbonated soft drink has been the flagship product of the Boylan Bottling Co. for over 100 years. [they're registered since 1891!] Its availability on draught has given it a truly nostalgic image that all birch/root beers try to convey. The unique taste is distinctively minty and sharp. Because of its "bite" this product appeals to the true birch/root beer consumer. Its heritage has created a loyal following among people who associate Boylan's Birch Beer with their childhood."

So there you have it - my second favorite soda - next to Virgil's Root Beer.
The only thing with Boylan's is that it has sodium benzoate - a nasty preservative that's not so good for you - in it :-( [for those who do not know me personally, I try to eat as naturally as I can...]

With all of that said, go out and find you some Boylan's Birch Beer, for your next movie marathon ~ you'll be glad you did! :-)

You had me at kettle corn...lol. Thankfully, it's one of the few snacks I LOVE and my daughter hates, so it's safe from her cabinet raids.

Random...sorry.
