ah, my first ever butterscotch root beer! although i suspect there are no other ones out there so it may very well be my last too. i actually did review this, sort of, for the cameras of the History Channel, so if you do catch the episode i am on, this is the mystery root beer which i cannot say the name of. but as i said above, how many butterscotch root beers are there out there anyway?!
don’t get me wrong here, i very much enjoy those butterscoth candies in the yellow wrapper that my grandmother would get from the grocery store but no one ever believed she paid for as she was very frugal and buying loose candies would be quite the extravagance indeed! perhaps she paid what she thought they were worth or what they went for in her day, putting a nickel in the sample payment box and taking a handful in her overly large purse. it actually does not say how many you get for that 5 cents, now then does it young man?! just “Samples: 5 cents.” but that is neither here nor there. except that this soda tastes just like those things, melted down and liquefied. i suppose there is a slight root beer taste in there too, but on the whole it is an insanely sweet, somewhat carbonated version of those candies.
i will admit i do like it for a few swigs but even i find it hard to get through a whole bottle. it is just too sweet. i suppose though that you could just have their regular root beer if you are not in the mood for this, but i must judge it against the world of root beers that i have thrust it into, not as a sub genre of its own. i think i gave this a higher grade on the air but i did not drink all that much of it that day, so i have lowered it down. it is an interesting novelty item and i am glad it exists but it is not a great drink.
