Today we have Canada’s own root beer The Pop Shoppe/ It is not a bad root beer. It has a good balance of flavors, but it is weak overall. It tastes like it is watered down. The flavor that is there is good, but it is only a hint. They really need to work on the ratio between syrup and carbonated water here.
Now I know Canada can make a good root beer, they make A&W the best root beer in the world, so it is kind of disappointing that this one is just a pale imitation of that.
I give it a 5 out of 10. It would be up there with the best of them, if it was stronger, but this one just failed to make an impression, it promises great things, but never delivers. If you find yourself drinking this one, you will not be repulsed, but it will leave you wondering what happened to the rest of it.
I wanted to give this one a higher rating, because what is there is good, but it just does not measure up as a root beer. It is like one of those store brand sodas you get real cheap and later realize it is just a watered down version of a real soda. I ended up giving it a 5 because you can take or leave it.
Until next time True Believers, may your mug always be frosted and your root beer always foamy. Tune in tomorrow for the final day of Kim Belding’s awesome Holiday gift: Frostie’s Vanilla Root Beer.
