Hey Song Sarsaparilla (Orange Can)

Hey Song Sarsaparilla (Orange Can)

Mike gave me this can of sarsaparilla, and I thought it was the same as the one I had reviewed early on in the history of the site. The can looks pretty much identical, except it’s orange instead of red. I can’t read the writing so I don’t know if there are any subtle differences. I had intended to just sit back and relax with this nice fizzy drink, but when I tried it, it tasted a lot different than I remember. The first can I had tasted very woodsy, with a generic root beer undertone. This one has a light bubblegum flavor with a healthy heaping of licorice root mixed in. It’s a weird combo. Some sips I think it’s okay and then others I absolutely love it. It’s definitely a unique flavor that is worth checking out.

Now the only questions are, “Is this the same stuff as I had before? Am I crazy to think it tastes so wildly different?
