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.
