another soda coming from my trade with Red, the Canadian connection. this one seems to be the store brand of Shoppers Drug Mart, who, judging from their website, are quite widespread in our neighbor to the north. whatever. perhaps they know how to make a better store brand than the United States does. i doubt it, but we shall soon see. or at least i will unless you are playing along at home which would be very weird indeed. impressive, extremely impressive, but creepy.
it does taste different. i will give it that at least from the start. yet it is not different in a better way. i am trying to place the flavour difference. i am tempted to go with cinnamon, brown not red, but that is not quite right. it has a light sweetness on the initial drink which becomes more intense and actually is quite high in the end. it is actually too high for my liking. it is nice in a way that they don’t stick to the expected root beer script but it does not succeed fully. it just ends up too syrupy sweet for me and the taste is off in a way i don’t enjoy too much. but for a store brand, it is not that bad. if that is your sole realm of availability, go for it, you could do worse.
Ingredients:carbonated water, sugar/glucose-fructose, colour, potassium bonzoate, natural and artificial flavour, citric acid, calcium disodium edta
