the same woeful graphic design graces this bottle as on the regular root beer except they added “Diet” and the Splenda ™ logo. oh well, whatever. after trying that soda, i don’t have too high hopes for this. not that i would ever have high hopes for a diet soda anyway of course, but they were at the normal diet soda levels and not hoping for more because the fully sugared version was good. got it? good.
so this is another vexing diet beverage. it smells ok. first taste is ok but then it fades to grossness and flagpole licking-ness. BUT not as much as some diet sodas!! woo hoo!! it only tastes KIND OF like metal shavings! and my stomach only SORT of aches after three swallows. wow, alert the media! the most alarming thing is that it does indeed vaguely taste like root beer too! whoa, as Joey from Blossom once said. but only vaguely mind you. one day i will find a diet root beer that truly tastes like root beer. i am not sure why that is so impossible. but then again, i know next to nothing about food science.
Ingredients:filtered carbonated water, citric acid, gum acacia, artificial flavor and color, sucrolose, acesulfame k, sodium benzoate as a preservative
