i was quite surprised when i found out this soda was again being made. i know very little about the revival of it though so i don’t know how faithful to the original recipe this is. of course i have seen the logo and the like many times over the years as it seemed to be a pretty popular brand 50 or so years ago but i had thought it long gone and never to return. apparently it is back, hopefully for a good long time. the little sprite fellow on the label has something bothersome going on with his eyes, so i hope he is ok. i suspect that the guy has some connection to mythical brownies but i have no verification of that either. otherwise i like the color scheme on the whole. i would probably make the label background something lighter than black, but that may just be me.
i like the concept of a caramel root beer. i very much love caramel, i obviously very much love root beer, so together they may be awesome. even better than butterscotch and root beer together is. throwing the “cream” in the mix may or may not work for me. so let’s see… a little rough on the swallow but it fades quickly to a creamy goodness that further fades to a caramel yumminess and leaves my mouth happy. if that initial roughness was not there i would really like this i think. i don’t know if it is an overcarbonation issue or the type of carbonation or something else but it is not something that i love. after that first second or so it is a very tasty drink and would rate much higher. perhaps i should let it go flat then re-chill it or something. but caramel and root beer work together, even with a bit of cream thrown in. i don’t think i would even say this is that creamy though, surprisingly. for me, that is a good thing, too creamy is bad.
