The Soda Jerk ruminates on Stewart’s

The Klassic Arcade sells 140 varieties of soda pop, and 9 of those are brewed by Stewart’s. In the last few weeks I have drank bottles of Stewart’s Key Lime, Grape, Root Beer, Cream Soda, and Orange Cream Soda. While none of their flavors would rank as my absolute favorite, every flavor of Stewart’s has been very good. Frankly, I wasn’t really expecting that much from their Grape soda pop, but when I drank it I immediately went back to those carefree days of childhood, and it was like I was holding a grape popsicle (and getting yelled at by my mom for dripping it onto something white!) on a hot summer day.

The best of the Stewart’s flavors has got to be Key Lime. Talk about a departure from normal! Now I love a good lime soda pop (something about that green color), but STEWART’S KEY LIME is not your typical lime soda pop. It’s a lighter, cloudy green, and the key lime tartness is amazing without being overpowering. Evocative of a key lime pie with carbonation. On a nice warm summer day, there is nothing more refreshing! Heck, it doesn’t even have to be a real warm day…notice we haven’t had too many of those this summer? I for one am thankful. Anyway, I would probably put Stewart’s Key Lime in my top 10, maybe even top 5, overall.

Stewart’s also makes a Diet Root Beer and Diet Orange Cream, as well as Black Cherry and Cherries n’ Cream. I have not yet tried any of those, mostly because I am not a fan of diet soda pops or cherry in general. But my guess is, based on how much I like the other flavors, these are probably pretty good, too.

So when you’re in playing games this weekend, or just driving by, grab yourself a bottle or three of Stewart’s. The best thing is that this brand sells for only $1.25 a bottle (compared to $1.75 for most other brands).

And if you ever happen to be somewhere in the area and see Stewart’s Ginger Ale, let me know, I would love to try it!
