Bring on the Root Beer Barrels, Bring on the PartyWednesday, July 22nd, 2009 by Becca Droz
Denture Danger: 0 (8 if you chew it)
You can’t confuse the root beer barrel candy for anything else of because its unmistakable barrel shape. Even if you were blind and couldn’t distinguish the shape of the candy, you would know as soon as you popped the candy into your mouth because that sweet root beer flavor doesn’t hesitate to jump right out at you.
So forget the kegs for this party because we’ve got the barrels. Root beer barrels! There are two kinds for you picky partiers, regular and Brach’s A&W. The A&W barrel hits you with a sharp, almost spicy sassafras flavor. I would call it the darker of the two “beers” (as it is also darker in color). The regular is lighter and has a gentler taste. It has a mild sweetness to it that is just perfect if you want the smooth root beer flavor without an extra kick to it. So instead of making it an over 21 event with the beer keg, you can have a fun (and safe) party for all ages with a supply of regular and A&W Root Beer Barrels. Forget the tap and instead unwrap.
