I Scored a Bottle of Polar Beverages Limited No. 100 Release
Polar Beverages has been rocking out bubbly sodas, seltzers, and mixers for almost 140 years -- since 1882. The company is based out of nearby Worcester, Massachusetts and if you've ever driven through, you've probably seen their massive facility and huge Polar Bear mascot, Polaris, looking down on you from atop their building while you're driving by on 290.
Polar seltzer are legendary New England favorites and they've made quite a few different flavors over the years, in fact, this year, Polar Beverages is celebrating a major milestone, their 100th flavor.
In celebration of their 100th recipe, Polar has just released "No. 100 Polar Seltzer" and I scored a bottle of it at the Bantam Market over the weekend.
According to Boston.com, No. 100 is a very limited release with only 15,000 cases produced and distributed nationally. Polar is famous for their limited-release seasonal seltzers, and once these limited flavors hit the store shelves, they typically disappear quickly. No. 100 Polar Seltzer is described as "the taste of sunny citrus & strawberry in orbit around sparkling STARfruit". It's pleasant, with the strawberry flavor hitting you first and mellowing out into a starfruit/tart lemon aftertaste.
There's another cool thing about the bottle, it glows in the dark. Unfortunately, I couldn't get a good screen shot of it in the dark, but I assure you, if you're able to find a bottle, take it into a dark room for the glowing surprise. Good luck trying to find No. 100 Polar Seltzer, I looked at around 4 different grocery stores before I finally found mine.
