    After tasting the Hanks Root Beer on my last review, the Grape had a common taste and sweetness.The Grape Soda provided an average but inspiring grape refreshment. This soda went down smooth and also leaves that desire for a second one. Like the Root Beer, I’m impressed with the bottle. It is a nice curved heavy bottle and classy label. Looking forward to trying the other Hank’s flavors. Give Hank’s a try at your next cookout.

    To start, I can’t remember the actual last time I had a grape soda, so it has been at least a decade on this one. I have several vintage Nugrape bottles and nice to see the they stuck with the same label in yellow. Well this soda for sure has an enriching grape flavor that reminds you of eating grapes right off of the vine. My only major downfall on this one is the high calories and sugar. Got to love their logo “ A Flavor you can’t Forget” and I think this is true to say.
