A&W Ten: Zombie Root Beer

In tribute of the return of "The Walking Dead" season 3 Marc and Adam reviewed the newest edition of A&W.

If A&W died and came back to life as a zombie there is no doubt in our minds... It would taste like the reinvented A&W Ten. There is some of the original standard in that morphed bottle but there is also something missing...... In its place there are things that do not belong...... much like a zombie. A zombie has the persons body...... but the corpse is only left with a small portion of the thoughts and motives of the original person. The zombie seeks to eat.... But it could care less if it was a squirrel, a dog, a "T-Bone",.... Or any human bone..... and root beer is absolutely lost on the zombie.

This brew has HFCS but it also has aspartame...... natural and artificial combined in a unique blend. I can't help but ask, why just 10, referring to the calories per serving.... which means 20 total for this 20oz bottle..... A&W certainly had a good idea..... diet root beer leaves much to be desired and this Ten calories is far more flavorful than than the diet alternative..... Undead or not.... this brew has far more life...... we dig zombies.... in the same way we dig this root beer.... we love watching zombies get blown away with a hand gun at close range..... we like chugging this brew at close range.... But a little goes along way, just like zombies.

If we had to restrict our calories, we are certain we would not start with root beer, but if it came down to it, yes A&W Ten, the zombie root beer, would fit the bill. By far the best "diet" brew ever!!!! With that in mind we grant this reanimated root beer with the following Frosty Mugs.

-Adam: the standard but with less life 2.5 Frosty Mugs

-Marc: overall 3 Frosty Mugs, one extra point because A&W attempted a hybrid, just didn't hit the spot for me

I agree the '10' makes a taste difference. Why ten? Who knows? It is following the campaign from Dr. Pepper 10 which was advertised toward men (diet soda is too girly?) and I assume is the answer to Coke Zero. 7-UP 10 was just released with A&W too.
