Fentimans Dandelion & Burdock
Dandelion & Burdock is considered a fine beverage, but people in the US aren't accustomed to the taste. (I've never wanted to drink a dandelion and had previously never heard of Burdock.) The people who don't understand it thinks this taste somewhere between licorice and cough syrup. However, there are people that swear by it and think it's the best thing ever. It comes in a really neat glass bottle, but sadly was only 9.3 ozs.
In small letters on the label, they say this is "Botanically Brewed." The brewing process causes there to be a smidgen of alcohol in the beverage. As they describe it, it's less than 0.5%, so legally they don't have to mention in on the label. (As they say, 7-up also contains a teeny tiny bit of alcohol for the same reason, but it's so small that nobody cares.) Well, there was a city up north that banned the sale of this drink to minors, even if it was less than 1 proof. That's the kind of thing that would probably make minors want to drink it even more!
