Looking into the forgotten crevices of popular culture.
I purchased some Tab about a year ago. Its not very good.The primary sweetener is saccharine, which got a bad rap for causing cancer in rats, I believe. Given that Diet Coke tastes a bit like carbonated chemistry-set, I suspect that the cancer angle had more to do with people abandoning the drink than taste. I should add, if you don't have a taste for "Sweet'n'Low", then the saccharine in Tab tastes a little weird.As an aside, if you really want to think about Tab a great deal, there's a curious episode of the "Sarah Silverman Program" that salutes the beverage.
Incidentally, steer well clear of Tab Energy, the main flavouring agent of which seems to be ginseng. I remember describing the taste to friends as “expeller-pressed celery stalks.” Somehow I made it through the whole can.
