The most striking feature of Frostie’s is the hilarious cartoon Santa Claus on the bottle. I wasn’t aware that Santa drank root beer, but whatever! You know what they sell – Santa Sells! It is packaged in a clear bottle, which is also rather unusual. Like most root beers I’ve reviewed lately, the ingredients are terrible, with high fructose corn syrup used as the sweetener.
Frostie’s tastes like gumballs and is sickly sweet, with a sticky aftertaste. There is no root beer flavour to speak of. It is the sort of thing that might be served alongside a kid’s meal at a bad restaurant, and should be enjoyed through a straw. It isn’t jarringly bad, but it definitely is not a quality root beer.
