Faygo has been sitting in my fridge for a while now. This morning, during a particularly aggressive jostling, it exploded, and I was forced to drink it at breakfast. While I prefer for my reviews to occur when the time is perfect, sometimes life throws a curve ball. So here we are.
Faygo is one of those deeply-synthetic root beers that has a place in all of our childhoods (as opposed to the all-natural root beers, which, despite the tradition-focused marketing, were generally not around much in those days). It looks and smells like a classic root beer, and is highly carbonated, like most canned drinks. It has no surprising flavours, but the “rootbeeryness” is strong.
This is a bright root beer, not a creamy variety. It tastes basically like carbonated water with sweetener and a flavour shot. But hey, it tastes as it should, so as long as you’re not expecting a profound root beer awakening, it should do just fine.Faygo Old-Fashioned Root Beer,
