If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time, you know how much I like zombie stuff. This stemmed from playing Humans vs. Zombies Tag in grad school and then hanging out with all of my Zombie Tag friends. Therefore, I was overjoyed to see that Caprice Brands had made Deadworld Premium Zombie Beverages, a full line of zombie themed sodas. Deadworld is a zombie comic (which I haven’t read sadly) where the zombies, led by King Zombie, have largely taken over the world. Each of the 12 flavors is centered around characters in the comics. Two of these flavors are root beer and vanilla root beer, so getting them became my number one root beer priority. The fine folks at Caprice Brands were kind enough to let me order a custom four-pack of the two flavors. The “regular” root beer is named Twilight Shuffler, after Tattoo, a half-human and half-zombie who can move from one dead body to another. She is trying to remember her true identity by getting lots of tattoos. I’m sure it makes more sense if you read the comics.
This has a nice Body with some wintergreen and vanilla standing out wrapped in spices. Yet, the total flavor mix is unique, giving it a sort of a familiar yet different feel. The Bite is prickly and spicy and a little stronger than I prefer. The Head is very tall but only with medium staying power. It finishes with a wintergreen and vanilla Aftertaste.
This is great stuff. This soda’s tagline is “All natural flavors of un-natural tastes” and you know what, it does taste un-naturally good. I’m so glad that my first zombie themed brew is so excellent, that I can recommend it to all zombie hunters and lovers for any zombie occasion. See how it rates against other root beers.
