this is about the closest thing to a Christmas or holiday root beer I could find this year. I find it rather curious that they changed their recipe, but everyone must adapt to the times or get lost in the shuffle I suppose. yet they proclaim ‘since 1939’ on the cap, which does not mean the same recipe since then I know. well, anyway, they switched to using all cane sugar, which is a good thing, cut down the sodium by almost half and increased the actual sugar content a bit. it has been a very long time since I had any recipe of Frostie so I come into this sort of blind. i like their embossed bottle, that is a nice touch. I guess my stereotype of Frostie is as kind of a low-budget brand that is often in stores like Marshall’s and Big Lots for some reason. I never quite get how these things end up in those type of stores, is it that a whole load of root beer was ordered but not accepted by someone somewhere? or do they just sell direct to them at a cheap price? but the embossed bottle definitely makes them seem a better brand to me.
this beverage is definitely very well carbonated. geez, calm down there bubbles! at least it is not bubbling over, so that is good. the drink itself is about what I would expect, very standard but good. they are classic so stick to the classic taste of sweet, root beer candy tasting with a good head and creamy finish. there is nothing wrong with that, play to your audience.
