Part of our “Ok-2-berfest” 2nd birthday party for my little girl was a Root Beer Taste Test. We love a good root beer every now and then. And we’ve always wanted to figure out what is our very favorite kind. So a blind root beer taste test it was!
The Root Beer line-up:
I picked up 8 different brands that I could find at our local grocery store, but I know there are many other brands out there! In order to keep it “blind”, I labeled 8 mason jars and poured each brand in their own jar.
I created score cards (download below) so that we could keep track of each type we tasted. Honestly though, after trying that many, it was hard to pick a favorite. Root beers are NOT created equal. They taste so different side-by-side. In fact, after trying half of them, I wasn’t even sure if I like root beer anymore. 🙂
But alas, as I’m typing this up, I’m drinking a root beer float, so I guess I still do like root beer after all. I think the key to picking your favorite is to drink them fast and make sure they are ice-cold. We used disposable mini shot glasses for tasting. That was the perfect amount.
From the types we had, Teddy’s, Barq’s and A&W were the favorites.
Do a root beer taste test and let me know which one you love the most!
