as i may have mentioned at some point in the past, in my spare time i like to run and bicycle. sometimes i am quite thirsty after a bike ride or run. today is one of those days in fact. so i thought i would give this soda a try. i do like some flavors of Honest Tea. their Lemonade is rather tasty also. i actually did not realize they had come out with this line of sodas until i saw it in the store.
i think it was a mistake to try to use a diet drink to quench my thirst, i will state that right off the bat. but one never knows. i suppose the combo of stevia and diet would be a good tip off, but i tried it anyway.
surprisingly the seemed to go for a very licorice heavy soda here. i don’t think i have ever had a diet soda that was this licorice flavored. actually it does mask the vile diet taste a little better than usual. nonetheless it is there and gross and leaving my tummy sad and my mouth still thirsty.
it is nice that it is all natural and organic and non-GMO, kudos on all of that. also on the unusual can, long and tall but still 12 oz, that is nice too. the foamy root beer keg with a straw sticking out in the graphics is surprisingly a unique take on the usual frosty mug or root beer keg. yeah, there are a few good things here. sadly, the drink itself is not one of those good things.
it seems all of the effort was put into things other than the taste. well, perhaps not, within the confines of a diet root beer you can only do so much and this is a pretty valiant attempt to try something different.
