i honestly have no clue how long this has been in my fridge. years would be the answer, at least 5, probably more like 7? the best by date on the bottom says ‘NOV 01’ but there is little chance it has been in there for over 11 years. i put it off as i have not enjoyed the previous dandelion and burdocks i have had which when coupled with my dislike of diet sodas in general, this just kept being pushed back. but the time has come, i am running dangerously low on sodas to review. thus for the sake of the internet i will try it out and risk my belly’s happiness for the next few hours.
the design is alright. as this is not a brand i am familiar with, perhaps it is more known as “D&B” and not AG Barr Diet Dandelion and Burdock, especially since the company name is very not prominent at all on the can. even on the website, the product is listed at “D&B”. oh well. it looks like a diet drink, white can and gold lettering really lend themselves to the “diet” feel for whatever reason.
so time to try it out. yes, i was right to be apprehensive. this is another vile concoction from the UK. i almost pity the taste buds of my mates over the pond since there are so many awful drinks from there. ug. this tastes pretty much what i would imagine liquid dandelions to taste mixed with aluminum. it could of course be worse because of the age, but i suspect not. it is just not good and probably never was.
Ingredients:carbonated water, colour (caramel e150d), flavourings (including dandelion & burdock extract), citric acid, sweeteners (aspartame, acesuleame k), preservative (sodium benzoate)

Dear Friend,

If you are, in fact, still alive, please refrain from eating or drinking anything that expired more than 10 years ago.
