I have tried Big Ben’s Root Beer! before, but never their sarsaparilla. I came across this at Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store and had to pick it up. Coincidentally, this is also my first sarsaparilla review. I’m not entirely sure what all the differences are between sarsaparilla and root beer. Maybe I’ll look into that again. The label is unlike any other. The background is purple and the font is weird. The exclamation point is random as well, but at least they’re excited about it. The taste is good. It is really light. There isn’t a lot of head or fizz. It almost has a minty flavor to me, which is weird because there probably isn’t any mint flavor in it. But overall this is a very good sarsaparilla. Try it out!
