so the Shoprite regular root beer was actually ok. does this bode well for the diet or is it just another case of the awful of being a diet drink shining through? i am going to guess the 2nd. it IS a store brand after all, they probably can’t do too much right. plus more recent tastings of the full-on sugar root beer have revealed it to be much worse than it was when i first tried it. alas. and alack too while i am at it.
can i say that i hate having to buy 2L of soda. especially when almost every other flavor comes in cans also. perhaps diet soda is consumed in much high quantities than just single cans and the 2L is the default single serving size? i don’t know. i doubt it. i hope not.
i worry about this drink since the preservative is higher in the ingredient list than both the sweetener and the flavoring. i could see the sweetener i suppose, artificial sweeteners being so much more concentrated than sugar, but shouldn’t it have more flavor than it has preservatives?
you know what? it actually has barely any flavor. which for a diet drink may be a step up! i don’t get that awful sick feeling in my tum-tum from it. but i also don’t taste anything in general. so that is bad. maybe i am lacking in the taste buds that are required for this drink… i don’t get it. slightly sweet water is what it is. brown, slightly sweet water. barely carbonated too. weird.
Ingredients:carbonated water, caramel color, potassium benzoate (a preservative), aspartame, and natural and artificial flavor.
