The verdict after the jump...

The Verdict: So I haven't done one of these in a while -- since the Starbucks Vivanno, in fact, from which I continue to recover. But I've become obsessed with Boylan's Natural Cane Cola. Though its flavor is readily identifable as "cola," it has these lovely cinnamon and vanilla nuances that make it much more complex than Coke or Pepsi. It's also less aggressively sweet than those two colas (especially Pepsi), with just the right level of carbonation.


Speaking of things I haven't done in a while, Boylan's Natural Cane Cola definitely deserves one of these. (In case you'd forgotten, our stamp of approval for good food and drink for $6, roughly, or less.)
