BEST SODA FOUNTAIN Minneapolis 1998 -
You can poke a fair amount of indiscriminate fun at Twin Citizens' culinary tastes, but never let it be said that we don't take our soda seriously: How many other towns can boast a veritable soda microbrewery? True, it's only open from May 15 to October 31, but those precious five and a half months are blessed with handmade sodas crafted from ingredients such as pure cane sugar, molasses, wildflower honey, and triple-filtered water. Try the spicy ginger ale or the kicky birch beer and you'll spend the rest of the year in even more profound despair than usual. Oh, forget we said that. Just mark your calendar and get ready for the best ice cream soda of your life--along with some pretty darn good burgers, fries, and onion rings.
