I was strolling the aisles of Kowalski's last week, and I stumbled upon this:
I had some Virgil's Root Beer a few years ago, and I remember liking it quite a bit. Time to try it out again.
Virgil's brags that it's actually "brewed," and not just "cold-brewed" like most soda.
And the ingredients list is HUGE. It contains anise from Spain, licorice from France, vanilla (bourbon) from Madagascar, cinnamon from Ceylon, clove from Indonesia, wintergreen from China, sweet birch from the southern US, molasses from the US, nutmeg from Indonesia, pimento berry oil from Jamaica, balsam oil from Peru, and cassia oil from China.
But how does it TASTE?
Brand: Virgil's Root Beer.
Origin: Los Angeles, California.
Purchase Place: Kowalski's Market, St. Paul, MN.
Sweetener: Unbleached Cane Sugar.
Review: It was good. But it wasn't as fantastic as I remember. It was SUPER creamy, but it was just missing a little something. I'll have to report back when I try another bottle to see if I can figure this out a bit more. For right now, I'm calling this "very average."
Score: 5 out of 10.
