My new drink obsession

A couple of weeks ago, Nathan and I ate dinner at Bull City Burger and Brewery in downtown Durham. The burgers were delicious, the fries yummy, and the pound cake very tasty (though to be honest, I didn't care for the chocolate sauce-shocking, I know). But the greatest find was the Boylan's soda dispenser in the restaurant. Boylan Bottling Company has been 'formulating and producing bold flavored beverages from its authentic recipes for over 100 years' (according to its website). They use pure cane sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup, and even have a line of natural sodas. Anyway, we were introduced to Boylan sodas at Bull City Burgers and fell in love. Nathan and I have been looking for them everywhere since then.

Imagine my surprise when one day last week, Nathan came home in the middle of the morning, telling me that he had a surprise for me. He pulled from behind his back this:

Little did we know, our little corner store carries Boylan sodas! Nathan happened upon them accidentally, and now we have to refrain from stopping there every day for a soda. I love the Black Cherry and the Ginger Ale; Nathan declares that the Cream Soda is the best he's ever had. Look for them--you won't be disappointed!

I LOVE pure cane sugar in "sodas"---I just call everything a coke----but since you used soda, and it's on the label, I'll go with it! I will DEFINITELY look for some---thanks for the tip!
