Sunkist and A&W Root Beer 10 review
We never drink soda anymore. It wasn't something we sought out to do, it just kind of happened as we started eating healthy. One of my favorites other than Pepsi is Sunkist and the Mr likes a good root beer. So when we saw these 10 calorie versions, we thought we'd give them a try. We both hate diet soda so we thought if we could have 10 calories worth (20 for the whole bottle) with decent taste the rare times we do want it, it would be all the better.
I don't like root beer period so that taste test was all him. He took a drink of mine first then his. He kind of cocked his head to the side so I took a drink of mine and put it down and said it was gross. The diet aftertaste is very heavy. I didn't have a high expectation for it anyway but man it would be nice to not drink my calories when I do want to pop a 'kist.
Here's the label info. One bottle is 20 calories for each and mine was a little higher on sodium and I'm not willing to indulge in it at 210mg for the bottle. The Mr's root beer was 130mg which wasn't as bad.
I think if you like diet soda, you would probably like these. If you're looking for something that resembles the high octane version of the original, unfortunately you're not gonna find it here.
What diet soda do you think tastes most like the original or does such a beast even exist?
