Favorite Kosher Root Beer

My kids have been getting into the Diet Root Beer kick, especially the Saranac Diet RB. I have always been a big fan of Diet Barq's, but was wondering whether anyone had a diet RB (kosher only please) that they thought was superior.

  1. I think diet A & W is good.

    1. IBC makes a great Root Beer, but I have no idea if they make it diet. Stewart's does make it diet, but I find it a bit lacking in foam. The flavor is good though.

      1. Dr. Brown's is really good. In fact, all of their sodas are really good, albeit hard to find outside the NY area.

          It's usually in the Kosher aisle of the grocery store... that or your fav. NY style deli.

        2. Boylans has no corn syrup! Yeah!!
          (although, I'm not sure if they have a diet one)

            Boylan's is pretty good stuff, but it's full sugar (like dadisachef says, no corn syrup, but lotsa sugar) and I think it's just a wee bit short on "bite." I think Barq's had it right when they said, "Barq's has bite." Anyone else think it was better before Coke bought them out?

          2. Dad's Root Beer is my favorite -
