Frostie Root Beer

Bottle and Label: Brown bottle with a nicely designed label that fits well with the name of the beverage

Ingredients: Carbonated Water, pure cane sugar, caramel color,sodium benzoate (as a preservative), citric acid, natural and artificial flavors

Smell: Nicely balanced smell of wintergreen and licorice with the wintergreen being the stronger of the two

Carbonation: Medium-High level of carbonation. This brew has a nice bite to it that is mostly noticeable at the back of the mouth. Thanks to the strong flavor, the bite does not detract from enjoying the flavor

Color: Dark amber color

Head: Nonexistent. I mean that literally. This brew has no head at all

Flavor:  The flavor here is strong and traditional. I can detect wintergreen, licorice, and just a bit of vanilla. These are combined well to create a smooth flavor with no bad aftertaste

Conclusion: Frostie Root Beer could easily become a staple root beer for many people. The strong flavor and strong carbonation make this a brew that is suitable for drinking with a meal since other foods won’t mask the flavor of this root beer. I think this is a brew that just about anyone could enjoy. It has a flavor that is comparable to an A&W but is better balanced which is why this brew earns a grade that is above the middle of the road A&W

RBR’s Grade- B

  1. I used to buy this root beer multiple times a week during college at the campus store. It was sold for about 75 cents, and it has a really nice taste. Glad it didn’t fail! 🙂

  2. My rating is based on memory from decades ago. I last saw this root beer in northern Vermont. I have not seen it in Indiana. Perhaps someone could let me know where it is distributed.

  3. Just picked some up at Walgreens. Plastic bottle, ingredient list read “high fructose corn syrup and/or cane sugar”, alright then.. But the taste was good and smooth and enjoyable, will buy again, not at all walgreens unfortunately, found in Louisville, ky.

  4. Frosty was a family favorite back in Ohio in the late 1960s and early 1970s. We always had some in the refrigerator and on picnics in the bottle. It tasted as good as any I know of.
