i wonder sometimes why i review diet sodas, i don’t like them very much after all. i guess i do it because i was born to do it, just as Willy Wonka was born to be a candyman. who can take a rainbow… oh wait, sorry, back to it.
so i find it curious that the cap on this diet root beer is the same as that found on Private Label Specialties’ Diet Root Beer. i don’t think i have seen it on any other brand. perhaps there is a connection? or maybe they just have the same cap supplier or something…
so this is kinda not good. it tastes like almost nothing at first, just very carbonated and sharp and stinging my mouth like a bunch of feeble arthritic bees and then it tastes like those bees dissolved into a liquid metal and coated my mouth and throat with their now fluid metallic carcasses. except not quite as bad as that sounds. i just went with it as i thought i was on a fine roll and the image in my head was funny to me. actually for a diet soda this is not awful. for a non diet drink it is indeed awful. if i could not have sugar i think i would get water before i would get any diet drink i have ever had so i am not the best judge of these things besides that whole destiny thing i mentioned above.
this does not really taste like root beer. it tastes like other diet root beers though so i suppose there is a different standard i should be holding these drinks to. i refuse to do that though. i know what i like and what stuff should taste like to make me happy and this is not it. alas. drink some water.
this is also the first soda i recall with added, straight up sodium as an ingredient. that seems weird to me. did they just decide it was not salty enough so threw some in there?
again, drink some water.
Ingredients:carbonated water, carmel color, aspertame, natural & artificial flavors, sodium, citric acid and sodium benzoate (preserve), acacia
