I have opened and tried one each of the two brands of Diet Root Beer. One was A&W and the other was Mug.
I like 'em both. The Mug was creamier and had a better after taste. The A&W was sharper, had a bit of longer lasting after taste, and also had a nice touch of vanilla...like creme soda. Both sweetened with Aspartame.
The Mug was 3 cents a can cheaper... 35 as opposed to 38 cents a 12 ounce can...including the two and half cents deposit on the cans.
Which I buy next time? Dunno, either is fine.
And, oh, add Hansen's. Also okay, but not as rich as the other two. However, had to cross two busy streets to get it at Rite Aid Pharmacy. Sweetened with sucralose, not aspartame. Six pack 2.55 or 42 cents a can, and don't like having to risk my life to get it..
