i like root beer (obviously). I like chocolate. together? i don’t know. carbonated chocolate never quite sits right with me. Yoohoo? kinda gross. although the Zuberfizz Chocolate soda works well, so maybe. i do appreciate Baco’s attempt to try something new. well, maybe it is yummy… this soda comes from Baco Mercat, which is a restaurant in LA specializing in things involving a unique type of flatbread sandwich called a “baco” that they put a large variety of thing on. they also have a focused liquor program, although i don’t know what that is. their line of sodas is five deep, all with unique flavors. i keep hoping that Meerkats are somehow involved in this restaurant when i see their name, at least in a ‘not-eating-them’ way. but alas it is not the case. i do like the style, all done in pop art graphic design, mainly the ‘baco POP!’ portion, making the irony obvious.
so this is actually pretty good. weird, but good. a chocolate taste on top of the underlying root beer. it is pretty creamy and smooth. i am not sure how well this would pair with food but on its own, it is enjoyable. the root beer flavor, as i said, is underneath and not too strong, if i really think about it, i can taste it and classify it as a root beer but just casually it is much more a chocolate soda. this does make one think about how a root beer float with chocolate root beer would be. is that a ‘black cow?’ i think that is a cola float with vanilla ice cream actually so probably now. ok, so i applaud Baco and their umlauts and hipness for trying this flavor combo.
