Found six packs of this product in Hannaford in Herkimer,NY
They are bottled in glass and look very close to the look of boylans and use inverted cane sugar.The flavors I have found are Root Beer and Black Cherry there was also a diet version.Has anyone else seen this or tried it? Let me know what you thought.Good day!

Tried them but did not care for them. Not much flavor to them and the bottle couldn't be more of an obvious Boylan's rip-off. Always thought of Polar as a budget soda, not a premium brand.

I first had the Root Beer back in May and posted some pictures in this thread:

I have enjoyed both the Root Beer and the Black Cherry, although the BC isn't as good as Boylan's Natural, which is my favorite of that style.

Who's to say Boylan didn't copy Polar? Boylan's say 1891 on the bottle and Polar says 1882. Maybe Boylan's used Polars bottle style from way back when and Polar is bringing theirs back.

Be interesting to see some old school bottles and their designs.
