I had never even heard of this one before I saw it at Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store. The tagline on the bottle is “The Better Half”, which makes it seem like a response to Dad’s Root Beer. I remember Dad’s being really good, but I haven’t had it recently and have yet to review it. Let’s hope this one is just as good. According to the label, “A portion of your purchase will go towards funding breast cancer research.” That’s really cool. Root beer with a cause. Weird that it calls itself “rootbeer”, instead of “root beer”. Not sure why they chose to do that.
The taste is phenomenal. Wow. I am blown away by the taste. It is incredibly smooth, with a creamy aftertaste. There are almost no root beers out there that taste this good. I will have to try Dad’s again to see if it stacks up, but I think this one might be better. Try this one as soon as you get a chance. This one is definitely going in the Hall of Fame.
