my gosh was this hard to get! many places claim to carry it but every one was out of stock on root beer for the last year or so. until i came upon! well, actually ifs ands & butts has it too but nothing else i want so it was not worth ordering there. anyway… tasty beverage. a little watery. some would say that that makes it have a subtle flavor but i just say it is watered down in this case. i don’t dislike it but it does not set itself apart from other drinks really to me.

What does it mean when it says "pure cane sugar and/or high fructose corn sweetener"? Does it mean that both ingredients are in the soda? I hate buying bottles that have this type of labeling!!

I just tried this one. It is actually pretty good. I'll give it an 80; but yeah I'd say it's better than A&W. They really somehow gave it a draft style flavor that I really enjoy, plus the one I bought is like made for real soda in real bottles or something – so it has cane sugar which really comes through. All in all, it's a really good one. It does not have a crazy strong flavor, yet it's one of the better ones I've tried.

I gave it a 30, pretty weak and watery.
