Handy Father procured this brew at the Save-a-Lot grocery store chain for the Tubs root beer review. This is the store brand from save-a-lot. There are never really any expectations for a store brand root beer, and as such, it is no surprise that we were neither impressed nor depressed by this root beer review.
Tubz root beer is a typical store brand root beer with high fructose corn syrup as the main flavoring. When you open a bottle of Tubz, it smells pretty good, at least like root beer. The color and head are indicative of a synthetic coloring and high fructose corn syrup meld. The flavor is sweet, and only the corn syrup lingers in your mouth for any length of time. There is a touch of very mild anise flavor, but even that, we suspect as artificial.
We gave the Tubz Root Beer Review a score of 2.25 out of 5 for its slightly lees than average flavor.
If you find yourself in a Save-a-lot grocery store, and you’re looking for a 2-liter bottle of root beer for less than $1.00, then by all means pick up a bottle of their store brand root beer, Tubz. If however, you’re looking for a superior root beer, then pass this by and look elsewhere. The best-tasting store brand root beer remains as the Walmart Keg Style root beer.
Tubz root beer ingredients: Carbonated water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Sodium Benzoate (as a preservative), citric acid, natural and artificial flavor.
