seeing as how the regular Zevia Root Beer was one of the most vile things i have ever experienced, i have very low hopes for this one. so let us see, shall we, just how this stacks up?
the scent is good, kind of gingery, kind of root beery. ok, maybe this is ok. and for about 4 seconds it is. light, refreshing, not bad. but then, after those four seconds, it gets gross and it only increases with time. at around the 20 second mark (yes, i am timing this), it is truly awful. it is bitter and metallic and sharp and makes me feel like i need to get more Pepto as my tummy is not happy with me. in about a minute and a half, it has faded away and i take another sip to be sure i was right. i am. i don’t think it is quite as bad as the regular root beer, but still, it is awful. which, again, is a shame. i think stevia could be a good thing still, but i have yet to bear witness to it being so. oh well, at least this time i only have this one can instead of having to pawn off the five extras on people who like diet sodas. that is one silver lining of this disgusting soda.
i really am curious just who enjoys this stuff? or who taste tests it, deciding they should spend a great deal of money producing, canning and distributing it. does King’s (the only big store i know that carries it) actually have someone who tastes this stuff or was it some bizarre customer demand? i don’t get it. but, to each their own.
