4 Root Beer Myths You Need to Know

Briefly, I’m reminded of my top-of-mind brand Mug Root Beer, a product of Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines Inc. (PCPPI), the exclusive manufacturer of PepsiCo beverages in the country. It features a smooth and creamy flavor with a subtle taste of wintergreen that resonates with people of all ages and offers an unforgettable taste experience.

Here are the 4 Root Beer Myths You Need to Know:

  • 1. Mug Root Beer contains alcohol

False. Many people have mistakenly associated root beer with alcoholic drinks, and sometimes it spins out of control and leads to heated discussions.

For example, in 2018, a cashier at a supermarket in Cabanatuan City mistook Mug Root Beer for an alcoholic beverage and refused to allow it to be sold during a liquor ban.

While the name suggest it is beer, Mug Root Beer is a non-alcoholic beverage.

It was Charles E. Hires, the Philadelphian pharmacist who introduced the first commercial root beer, who gave the non-alcoholic beverage its name as an attempt to capture the masculine sensibilities of the miners whom he was selling his products to back in 17th century.

  • 2. Mug Root Beer is made from roots

False. While its name also gives the idea that it’s made from roots, Mug Root Beer is made from a variety of ingredients including carbonated water and other natural and artificial ingredients.

Throughout the years, root beer has undergone a lot of major innovations and has been adjusted depending on the brand to achieve a unique and exciting taste experience that would appeal to more people. Many modern root beers like Mug Root Beer are sweet and flavorful which set it apart from other varieties of soda.

  • 3. Mug Root Beer contains addictive stimulant

False. Compared with other sodas, Mug Root Beer is caffeine-free, hence it is a great option for people who are avoiding such ingredient. It is also fat-free and contains a minimal amount of sodium, making it a better alternative to other varieties of non-alcoholic beverages.

  • 4. Mug Root Beer is only consumed as a beverage

False. Although Mug Root Beer is already a delightful treat in its simplest form, it is also customizable and can be used as an ingredient in various recipes.

It can be used as a marinade for meats or flavoring for pastries like pies, cake, doughnuts, and cupcakes. It can also be used to make root beer slushies, if you’re feeling the icy vibe, or root beer cocktails, if you’re craving a boozy kick and a little adventure.

Another best-loved recipe is the root beer float, which is made by combining root beer and ice cream to whip up a fantastic comfort drink.

So there you go! I hope this list was of help in some way or the other.
