Found this at an Asian market on Rt 100 in Exton, PA. Never really thought that China would be into the whole sarsaparilla thing, but I shouldn't be too surprised as the Phillippines has a sarsaparilla soda as well (called "Sarsi"--I'll get around to that one sooner or later!) I'm kinda apprehensive about this though. Asian pallettes are a bit different from Western ones (just try a Japanese beer vs one of our American beers and you'll see what I'm talking about), so I'm not really expecting something all that close to an actual sarsaparilla.
Hmmm . . . well, that's different. It definitely has a spice to it like a sarsaparilla should, but also something along the lines of bubble gum flavoring! It's something along the same lines as say the flavoring of Vernor's Ginger Soda. It's kind of hard to really place it. Not sure if I'd really call it a sarsaparilla, but don't really know what to call it. Also not sure if I like it or not. It's best if you give it a shot and see how it stacks up to you!
Sweetened With: "sugar and/or high fructose corn syrup"
Verdict: Worth trying at least once
