Hires Root Beer
- Bottled under the authority of Cadbury Beverages Inc., Stamford, CT
- The Pitch:
- Since 1876. The Original.
- The Ingredients:
- Contains: Carbonated water, sugar and/or high fructose corn syrup,
caramel color, sodium benzoate (preservative), natural and artificial
flavors, phosphoric acid.
- People ask me where to get this. I can finally
say: Hockers gas station/food store in Bethany Beach, DE. There you
have it (the bottle, anyway. I don't know where I got the can...the
picture is from a while ago though). A medium headless drink that's
lightly carbonated.Unlikely to offend, unlikely to impress. It tastes
like typical root beer. Drinkable, somewhat on the sweet side. See,
that's what you get when you don't know what sweetener you're going
to be using on any given day. Nothing fancy here, just a good basic
root beer. If you're interested about their claim to be "the original",
what the Soda Museum has to say on the subject. B-
