Non-Alcoholic Does Not Mean No Fun
A friend of ours who works for Whole Foods turned us onto these guys from Portland. We proudly carry the Organic Root Beer, Orange Soda and Ginger Brew from Maine Root ($3 each). The sodas are organically sweetened and are produced in an environmentally responsible manner which means that I don’t have to feel so bad about giving my kids, Liam and Van…
The guys at Maine Root use organic evaporated cane juice which is extracted by passing the sugar cane through a set of rollers, then drying the extract into crystals. That’s it.
Root Beer -- “Organically sweetened handcrafted soda made with the extracts of wintergreen, clove and anise. Our recipe combines these ingredients to allow the flavor of each of these extracts to come through.”
Orange Soda -- “Made using Fair Trade Certified organic evaporated cane juice, pure water, and mandarin orange. It's so great tasting you think you are back in Floridar.”
Ginger Brew -- “Our recipe lets the spicy flavor of the Ginger Root loose to mingle with Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, purified water, and Happy Bubbles. We make Maine’s first and only Organically Sweetened sodas, and we are proud of it!”
