Boylan Shirley Temple

Thank you Boylan for the seasonal release of Shirley Temple, a handcrafted cane sugar soda.  While the dentist has said time and time again “stay away from soda” he has also said that “cane sugar or unprocessed sugar in soda is ok”.  Therefor when I had the opportunity to try Boylan’s Shirley Temple, I was really interested, especially to find out if there was a taste difference.

Well, honestly, I couldn’t tell the taste difference between a Boylan product and regular soda.  The Shirley temple is sweet like any other soda and the taste has not been compromised at all.   This is a relief considering the amount of dental work my children have had.  No they don’t drink a lot of soda, but every now and then they really like root beer, and these are a great alternative. 

Boylan’s old fashion style fits right along with their age.  In 1891, William Boylan developed Boylan products and began bottling soda’s in the early 1900’s.  Check out more of Boylans story here. 


I received one or more of the products mentioned above free for review purposes. Regardless, I will only recommend products that I have personally tested/tried and believe will be a good fit for my readers.


  1. A good old fashion soda... Yum!
