7: Diet Barq’s

It’s been a few years, but my rootbeer supplier recently had a bit of a sale, and by the time I got around to checking, they only had Diet left. So it seemed a good opportunity to step back in and to try out some brands that I’d not previously sampled.

Firstly, Diet Barq’s. Now, I previously suggested that Barq’s was my favourite of the standard rootbeers, so I was interested to see how the diet version would stack up. And, three cans later, I’m still unconvinced. It tastes like rootbeer, but there is a slight chemical aftertaste that stops it working from me – there’s no hint that this drink could be anything other than artificial. Looking at the ingredients, I noticed that it includes Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Benzoate (to protect taste). I’ve never before seen an ingredient listed along with a justification.

To summarise, nice, but not nice enough.
