the Todd Bosley folks were kind enough to make a special order for me that allowed me to just buy one bottle of their diet root beer. which is super nice of them. it is a bit of a risk for me as sometimes you get a bum bottle, but it’s a diet soda, so is there such as thing as a non-bum bottle anyway? =) I kid, I jest, I yank the virtual cyber chains.
but in all seriousness, this suffers the fate of many diet root beers. at first it is all like “oh. huh. ok, not bad. I guess this is decent. wait, no. nope, there it is. ick.” the artificial sweetener metallic taste kicks in after about 7 seconds. but before that point we have a kind of creamy, rather sharp, sort of bitter root beer that wouldn’t really even be considered decent if it were not diet. it does have a very long lasting, large foamy head if that is your sort of idea of goodness for whatever reason.
I respect Todd Bosley for making this along with several other varieties of soda, so thank you Todd, say hello to Tom “Mr Cunningham” Bosley at the next Bosley family reunion please and carry on with your world famous stuff, but how about adding a birch beer or sarsaparilla to that line up?
