I got this one at an A&P Supermarket off of I-78 in NJ. Don't have too many A&P supermarkets down in South Jersey or the Philly area these days. Think they've all been replaced with Super Fresh markets. That and I didn't know that the Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company has been around for 150 years. Well, glad they decided to celebrate that anniversary by making a "premium" root beer. One wonders why they went with a non-twist off cap though! I guess that helps keep in the freshness (I did have this in storage for a while now and it still has fizz!) Luckily I do keep a bottle opener on me for just such emergencies.
As for taste, this is a decent root beer. I wasn't really expecting much being a store brand and all, but this is pretty smooth and tasty. Nice rooty flavor and bite. Just wish they used sugar rather than HFCS, but oh well. Still pretty good, and worth it since it's not as pricey as most "premium" root beers!
Sweetened With: "High Fructose Corn Syrup"
Verdict: Worth a bottle or two
