Diet A & W Root Beer

Diet Soda, Root Beer

If I had to name one favorite flavor of soda, it would definitely be root beer. Without a doubt, A & W Root Beer is my favorite brand of root beer. A couple of weeks ago, after my dentist suggested I begin drinking sugar free soda, I began buying and consuming Diet A & W Root Beer. In the past two weeks, I have purchased three two liter bottles of this diet soda.

This variety of diet soda has so impressed me, that I have decided to write a review of it. Presented here, as a service to the consumer at large, is an article which reviews and examines Diet A & W Root Beer.

Taste / Flavor

My dentist recently suggested that I start drinking sugar free soda, as he filled three cavities, that were caused largely by my high intake of sugar sweetened soda. I was somewhat hesitant in switching to diet soda, until I saw a display of Diet A & W Root Beer at Walgreens on my home from the dentist.

For many years, I have been a big fan and frequent consumer of regular style A & W Root Beer. As soon as I tasted the diet version, I thought it tasted virtually identical to the regular style root beer. Any doubts or misgivings that I had about the flavor of diet soda were dispelled upon tasting Diet A & W Root Beer. On a flavor scale of one through ten, I would assign Diet A & W Root Beer a rating of ten.

Please keep in mind that I almost never rate a product a ten. I just don’t think that a better – tasting diet root beer could be produced.

Packaging

Two liter bottles of Diet A & W Root Beer are clear, with orange, white and brown labels. The cans are also white, brown and orange.
