i am not quite sure when this was released. i know when i reviewed the two full sugar (and i really do mean FULL SUGAR) versions a few years ago, they did not have a diet so it is semi-recent at least. i would be very interested if they could pull off the Butterscotch Root Beer in a diet version as that was an insane amount of sweet right there. but alas, they just made a diet of the regular root beer. whatever, in the end it just matters if it is good or not, right?
more than any other brand, i think i get more searches coming in for “Dang Butterscotch Root Beer.” which is probably due to my reviewing it for the Modern Marvels TV show in 2008, but perhaps i just rank highly for that search term. anyway, i feel slightly more connected to this brand for such reasons and i hope extra that this will be tasty.
the label and packaging are fine although they lack nutritional info of any sort. surprising that that is legal… oh well. maybe they just haven’t gotten caught yet. i still feel like the “That’s Good” part should be bigger, bolder, something. it just blends in and disappears too much if it is to be recognized as part of the name.
this has really no head at all. the carbonation is very low also which could be a problem with the bottles i got but i think a sample size of two should allow for one to be correct, yet both are the same. the taste is decent, surprisingly. i don’t get the aftertaste! i wonder why? interesting… maybe some of the “natural flavors” is really sugar and that is why there is no nutritional info… doubtful of course. it is not great but it would suffice in a pinch. the flavor is a bit watered down also. i want a bit more taste in my drinks. so it is alright. definitely one to keep in mind if you are avoiding sugar.
