Abita Root Beer Review

Not terrible, but disappointing. Both because I think it’s too sweet with kind of a slight medicinal flavor, but also because when I ordered the draft root beer at Shake Shack I thought it’d come in a frosty mug like A&W and not just a regular old cup. Why was this more expensive than a Coke?

Would I buy it again? No

Abita Pecan Pie Soda Review

This has a pretty similar flavor profile to the other “butterscotch”-esque drinks I’ve had recently, but with a slightly more smoky, savory cast to it. Maybe that’s the pecans? I love pecan pie — and have sometimes been known to bake a pecan pie — and, blindfolded, I wouldn’t know this was a pecan pie soda. But it’s a nice attempt and not at all gross.

Would I buy it again? Well, they only sold it in six-packs, so ask me again in five sodas. I guess I’d probably buy¬†Swamp Pop Praline Cream¬†instead if I was shopping for a butterscotch-style drink.
