The Soda Works
In its year-end review for 2012, Boise Weekly cheekily named The Soda Works the "Best Soda Shop that Bloomberg Would Approve Of." Perhaps the magazine thought the New York City mayor would admire that only cane sugar, fruit juice, or stevia sweeten more than 90 of the shop's offerings. These are among more than 150 total sodas, from old-school varieties such as Kiss and Faygo to the contemporary concoctions of Sprecher and Jones Soda Co. Besides beverages, The Soda Works stocks classic snacks such as Jennieʼs chocolate macaroons and Zapp's kettle chips, made by keeping a potato in a teakettle until it boils down into chips.
