Foodie: Virgil's Sodas

While I'm on a foodie bent, Virgil's Cream Soda and Virgil's Root Beer are worth a mention.

They're microbrewed sodas, and quite good. The cream soda tastes creamy, which is rare among the mass-produced stuff. On the other hand, it's $8 for a 4-pack so it definitely falls within the realm of splurge. It's the Breyer's Ice Cream approach to soda: natural ingredients that you can pronounce, brought together to make a quality product with a good taste. They succeed, but the way I go through root beer and cream soda, sucking down $2 at a time is painful. (Yet I don't cringe at paying a vending machine a buck fifty for two cookies. Go figure.)

Speaking of things that come in bottles, Jack Daniel's has these country cocktail things out now. I couldn't immediately taste the alcohol in the Hurricane Punch flavor, whereas Mike's Hard Lemonade has a definite alcohol taste. Watch yourself with the Jack, kids, you'll forget you're drinking booze. ;)
