somehow I never reviewed this. weird. I actually only even checked because my daughter has to make a soda bottle rocket for STEM class and these seemed the most rocket-like so I figured one of the recipes probably changed at some point. but this is all new to me, so win-win!
it comes in a brown tinted plastic bottle, that seems so very 80s to me. I never really think about it but you don’t see that anymore. I don’t know why not really. the glass purists proclaim how the amber or green bottles block the sunlight so the product stays fresher in tinted glass but maybe the way they tint plastic is toxic or something so big bottles stopped doing it? or more likely it costs like 1 cent cheaper per million bottles to not tint it, so cost cutting.
a budget diet soda does not seem like it will be a good thing, and it is not in the end but it is not as bad as I suspected it might be. if I had to, I could drink this. the aftertaste is not as bad as it usually is for whatever reason. but the actual taste is tinged with the metallic ick I have not grown to enjoy in any way. I can tell it is diet root beer but it does not resemble regular root beer very much. and yes, non-diet root beer is ‘regular root beer’ to me. so yeah, it is not really bad but it is bad. even if I had to only drink diet I do not think I would drink this one.
