diet birch beers

Bowl & Basket Zero Calorie Birch Beer

I had heard rumors that Shoprite has released a new glass bottled root beer under their semi-recent Bowl & Basket brand. as there are a few Shoprite locations nearby I went looking. at the closet and largest one I went to the soda aisle and saw nothing despite walking up and down, checking the endcaps and so on. I asked a guy who was stocking the shelves, he said he didn’t know anything about it. then I ask at customer service, they tell me they don’t get much of it but it is at the deli /ready made food area. so over there I go. I spot the area and see they have cola and that is all, just empty spots. a few days later I head to the next closest one and go to that area first. happily they have a birch beer and this diet birch! but no root beer. this is good as I had no idea they made a birch beer let alone a diet one. so the quest continues!
I decided to start off with the diet as it is a bit more intriguing being as there are nto really all the many diet birch beers in the world. and also because I do not tend to like diet sodas in general so may as well get it over with first.
as with many diet sodas I go into this with an open mind. for the first maybe two seconds it tastes good, then the sucrolose kicks in and it tastes all bitter and metallic. but that actually fades to leave you with a decent aftertaste. it makes me think “self, this isn’t so bad now, I must be mistaken, this taste must be in there as well.” the thing is, the main, strongest taste is not really good at all and it is there. I am in favor of them making more sodas and that they made so many varieties so I appreciate that. also they didn’t use artificial colors to make this red, which is great, so kudos there Shoprite. I suppose there could even be a diet root beer out there, it seems likely even. I look forward to the regular, full sugar sodas though I will admit.
