ok, so $am emailed me a bit ago and told me of a new drink he had found, offering to send me a sample. i, of course, wanted some, so it came over the pond, many thanks to Sam once again! well, let me try it first… ok, well, now i see a trend as this tastes similar to the Free Natural root beer. that is, it is fruity, rather bubble gum-like, although this is not nearly as bad as either of the Free Natural brews, this is still quite bad. and why ruin the fine sugar taste with both saccharin AND aspertame?! that makes no sense, if it is a diet drink, put no sugar, if it is not a diet drink don’t put artificial sweeteners. or maybe i just don’t get English regulations or something. could be some plan to not let the population get as fat as some Americans. but it adds the awful aftertaste of those artificial sweeteners without really taking away much as far as calories go. anyway, avoid this one too, especially is you want something that taste remotely like sarsaparilla.

I don't know what it is with the Brits and saccharine. I've bought British soda without reading the label, only to gag and discover that it was sweetened with sugar AND saccharine. They apparently still think it's WWII over there. They even put it in this stuff I use instead of Worcestershire sauce called Henderson's Relish. Bizarre.
