Have you ever wanted to bring the delicious taste of root beer with you on on a multi-day backcountry hike? Me too! Now there’s a product just for us: Mitten Munch trail bars. According to the manufacturer’s website, Mitten Munch is…

I have had root beers, root beer extracts, root beer candy, root beer liquor, and root beer iced green tea. But never, ever did I expect to come across root beer flavoured milk! This is groundbreaking stuff.
I don’t even know how to review this. It’s… milky. Yep. This is not surprising because it came from the udder of a cow. It is a brownish colour, like watered down (milked down?) chocolate milk. It is very sweet, and tastes somewhat like a melted root beer float, except imagine that it’s a lump of root beer flavoured ice cream melted into a big glass of milk. It has no carbonation (thankfully). The best approximation I can muster is a steamed milk with a shot of rootbeer flavour… but cooled down.
Obviously this product defies classification, or even a rating. I suggest you try it yourself. The company, Shatto Milk (pronounced “Chateau”), sources from hormone-free cows off of their own family farm, and distributes in nifty glass bottles. They have a complete line of weirdly-flavoured milks, including chocolate, banana, and cotton candy. Keep up the creativity guys!
Okay, it’s not really root beer, but how could we resist reviewing a beverage with such an unlikely combination of ingredients? Antioxidant health benefits aside, green tea and root beer work surprisingly well together. Steaz tastes exactly as it sounds – like cold green tea with root beer poured in. It is very refreshing and crisp, slightly bitter (from the tea), and has citrus undertones. An overstated creamsicle flavour dominates on the root beer side, which is surprising in such a refreshing beverage. There is a lingering aftertaste, but it’s not entirely unpleasant. It is not too sweet, and the bubbles from carbonation seem smaller and more refined than in a regular soda, like it was brewed with Perrier. While Steaz is strange, and clearly not a root beer, we highly recommend you try it on a hot summer day.
