whoa! holy vanilla! i guess you cannot say there is no truth in advertising with this soda right here. before i opened or sipped it i thought “anthony, do they really need a separate vanilla root beer?” my answer was “i am not so sure self, try it already and see!” so i did. and now my tummy feels like it is going to rebel. this is, by far, the richest root beer i have ever had. great googly moogly! i think my teeth rot a little more with every sip. i eat a good amount of sweet food and have even been known to eat packets of sugar straight too but my stomach may reject this outright.
i am not sure i understand the “best by” date as it is “11 . 40C” although that last letter may not be a “C” as it kind of fades out. i don’t think this went bad since i really did just get it about 2 weeks ago. who knows, just strikes me as weird.
so on the one hand i sort of like this. it is different. on the other, i don’t. it is sort of gross. to me, the taste is much more butterscotch than just straight vanilla i think. now if they had marketed this as “Butterscotch Root Beer” i would be more ready for that. i quite enjoy those gold foil wrapped candies given out by grandmothers and asian restaurants for whatever reason. and this soda reminds me of that taste. is that a good thing? occasionally i guess it is. i could have this once or twice a year and be fine never having it other times. the sweetness and the flavor are just so overwhelming and intense that i just can’t imagine me thinking “hey, i want some of that liquid butterscotch soda!” but who knows, maybe i would.
but it is definitely worth trying out this soda i would say. but be ready.

I think I've tried this once or twice. It is pretty good actually. I don't know if I would buy it all the time. Maybe they should use cane sugar instead and then I would buy it more often. I'd give it a 77 out of 100.

I like a lot of vanilla in my root beer and Frostie has been one of my favorites anyway so this is a no brainer favorite.

This one was creamy and smooth, but since it says, Natural and artificial flavors, I suspect it was more on the side of artificial vanilla flavor. It was avrage, I give it a 70

After trying this one again, I have to up my initial score to 90. This root beer is really good. However I do agree with you Anthony, that this root beer is too sweet; and I agree that it does have a butterscotch flvor (which I like) It is a very flavor overwhelming root beer, but I like that. On a plus side, they are using cane sugar with this root beer now, so perhaps that is also why I upped their score. Just get rid of 4-5 grams of sugar, and I think I could give this an even better score. The only thing that would prevent me from enjoying this everyday is the fac that it is too sweet.
