Abita Root Beer is a popular root beer. It has a strong “cola” style of taste. On its website it
states that it is different in its brewing. Its unique taste, according to Abita is its own Louisiana cane sugar.
Abita Root Beer
Abita Root Beer is made with a hot mix process using spring water, herbs, vanilla and yucca (which creates foam). Unlike most soft drink manufacturers, Abita sweetens its root beer with pure Louisiana cane sugar. The resulting taste is reminiscent of soft drinks made in the 1940s and 1950s, before bottlers turned to corn sugar and fructose. Some soft drink makers add caffeine to their product, but Abita is naturally caffeine-free.
Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an old-fashioned root beer float. Abita Root Beer can also be used in cooking to create delicious glazes and sauces as well as cakes and other desserts, or you can keep it simple – just pour it into a frosty mug and slurp loudly through a straw. (Abita Website)
Driving the Root Beer Truckster from Mississippi along Hwy 90 to New Orleans, you have a great idea of the beautiful Gulf Coast and its culture and natural beauty. Both Barq’s and Abita have a “cola” type of taste. You remember “Cola” soda is Southern. It is the most
popular taste of soda. Some root beers have a strong cola taste.
If you look up Abita on root beer reviews, you will see high ratings. Personally, I look at
Hires Root Beer as the “ruler” for all root beer and measure other root beers in relationship to how Hires tastes. Abita has a strong “soda” taste with alot of bubbles.
Soda water helps alot with ending thirst. Hires has a strong taste of syrup. Modern root beer, of late, has had a strong soda taste.
If you like a strong soda cola tasting root beer, buy a six pack of Abita.
