This root beer was bought at a Choices Market, a small chain of grocery stores in British Columbia that solicits business from the young affluent urban crowd. To my surprise, it carried a root beer I had never seen before from Simple Beverages. Despite the store’s all-natural image and the slogan “it’s not just what you put in your body, but…” emblazoned on the label, the root beer has only artificial ingredients. The bottle has a trendy tartan design and a black cap – perfect for accessorizing alongside your new jeggings or murse.
I was fully prepared for a terrible root beer experience in Simple Soda, but to my astonishment it was actually quite excellent. It has a strong root beer flavour, and the perfect level of creaminess. Each sip tickles the tongue with a sharp, slightly ionized and acidic bite. It is sweet, but bearably so, and has flavours of brine and vanilla, with cream soda undertones. I recommend buying a 6-pack of Simple Soda if you ever encounter it.Simple Root Beer Soda,
