Klassic Root Beer

Since Klassic Arcade 2.0 opened on June 30th, one thing has been missing that was a favorite at the old 1.0 location. Customers would ask about it, why we didn’t have it yet, would we be getting it, and most of all, WHEN would it make its triumphant return?

The good news is that our very own Klassic Root Beer is now back, and it’s better than ever! It’s the same root beer recipe that you love from the old location. Rich and creamy, with a good amount of foam on top, like any good root beer should have. You can get a 16 ounce cup for only $1.50 (or a 10 ounce cup for $1.00). Or, spend a little more and get a collectible Mr. Soda Pop pint glass for only $5.00 (it comes filled with root beer), and then you get unlimited $1.00 refills for life when you bring the glass back.

How is it better than ever? Because now that we carry Hershey’s Ice Cream, you can get a Klassic Root Beer float for only $3.00! We’ll combine vanilla ice cream with our delicious root beer for what my dad would call an “absolute taste treat”!

So stop in and have a glass of our Klassic Root Beer, or even get a root beer float. We’ll see you out there!


Pumpkin Pie Soda Pop

Well, it’s that time of the year again. The leaves have (mostly) fallen, Halloween is past us with Thanksgiving struggling not to get overlooked by Christmas. And the eternal debate is here once more: people that like pumpkin pie and people that are wrong don’t like pumpkin pie. That debate will not be settled here.

For those of us who do like pumpkin pie (and the Soda Jerk is definitely in the “I freakin’ LOVE pumpkin pie!” camp), Maine Root Handcrafted Beverages™ has again released their Pumpkin Pie Soda. Klassic Arcade got its hands on one case, so there is a limited supply. You’ll definitely want to grab a bottle or two before they run out (last year they sold out by Thanksgiving).

This is a very good soda pop, that really tastes its best on a chilly, gray fall day. (Trust me, you don’t want this on a warm summer day) With a definite presence of pumpkin spice in every sip, you will definitely taste the pumpkin pie flavor throughout the entire bottle. Seems like Maine Root knew just how much pumpkin spice to add so as to not overwhelm, but you will find that it comes right up to the line of being too much. This is not mild by any stretch, but it is never too strong. I think they did a fine job of balancing the amount of spice with the proper amount of sweetness.

So if you are a fan of pumpkin pie and haven’t tried Maine Root Pumpkin Pie Soda, head out to Klassic Arcade and try a bottle. Then get an extra bottle to take home and wait to enjoy it with a piece of pumpkin pie (which the Soda Jerk just might do after Thanksgiving dinner!)
