Time for some Sarsaparilla:
Brand: Diet Sioux City Sarsaparilla.
Origin: Whitestone, NY.
Purchase Place: Frattallones Ace Hardware, Burnsville, MN.
Sweetener: Sucralose (Splenda).
Review: Right away, I thought this was pretty good (for a diet). It was a little weak and watery like most diets, but it still had a nice smoothness and creaminess to it. There was a bit of an odd aftertaste, but it was good.
The weird thing is that it doesn't have that earthiness or extra bite of a sarsaparilla. It tastes pretty much just like a diet root beer. I would have never called this sarsaparilla. Maybe the "bite" of sarsaparilla can't be translated to a diet. I dunno. But still, overall, not bad.
Score: 6 out of 10.
