One of my favorite vacation spots as a kid was Jackson Hole, Wyoming. We only went there a couple of times, but it’s a beautiful area and fun tourist town. Next time I go back I’ll have to visit the Jackson Hole Soda Company. In addition to High Mountain Huckleberry, the company website touts its Buckin’ Root Beer, Snake River Sarsaparilla and South Fork Strawberry Rhubarb.
The best part about the Jackson Hole Soda website is that it suggests soda pairings with particular meals. For instance, High Mountain Huckleberry is “an excellent compliment to light foods like Rocky Mountain Rainbow Trout, and grilled chicken.”
This soda is delightful. I have never knowingly consumed huckleberries nor anything huckleberry flavored, so I can’t decide whether it’s a natural or artificial approximation. But for some reason, drinking this makes me feel nostalgic. Maybe it’s the Jackson Hole connection.
Generic, dark, 12-ounce bottle with a glued-on label.
Sweet subtle berry.
This soda is a pleasure to drink. It’s a very sweet soda with a floral-berry flavor. It’s not at all tart, nor is it heavily carbonated. I would prefer it with even more bubbles.
Carbonated water, sugar, natural and artificial flavors, citric acid, gum acacia, caramel color, red 40, blue 1, sodium benzoate (preservative).
Would I buy it again?
