It tastes a bit like Dandelion and Burdock.

It used to be available in Korat at A&W burger establishments. I don't think there are any A&W's still open in Korat or Thailand but if you know differently, please tell. The burgers are pretty good. I think I've seen the Root Beer for sale in other places, usually in cans. Perhaps it was even A&W brand. Try it if you see it. It's not so bad.

Old enough to remember Dandelion and Burdock!  :D Actually, I think it has made a comeback in Britain. Or maybe it never went away. I don't know. The first time I drank it, I was about 13 years old. And I can remember where I was at that time. It must have made an impression on me.  :)

There is an A&W at Pantip Plaza I think. You can buy the A&W root beer in Korat at some 7/11's.

IRN Brew - made in Scotland from girders. Rots your teeth, but, like all of the sugary fizzy pop.

When I was a lad the pop man came round once a week with a new supply and took away all the empties. Now that is what I call recycling - same with the milkman each day. Beer bottles all had deposits on them. Modern day packaging is ridiculous and creates huge waste. Bugger.

 old Jubbly was an orange drink in a plastic / cardboard container that looked like a small pyramid , and if you put them inro your freezer , they made Orange Ice pyramids that you sat licking on the park bench , just before you went to mug some old aged pensioner  ;D

Jubbly was a big hit in Nottingham, and it now looks it was a hit with the geezers down South  ;D

I had a cousin who came to visit me here, bring a couple of bottles of Irn Bru, the wife thought it was disgusting. I loved Irn Bru as a child. I think Tizer was a rip off of Irn Bru, but nowhere near as good.

I pretty sure you can buy A&W Root Beer in Macro, well at least you used to be able too.

Dandelion and Burdock! how old are some of you guys. lol

yes, they usually have the a&w brand at lotus, 7-11 and makro. i've only found it in cans though.

stewarts in bottles is the best. they make a great cream soda too. i think i found stewarts in bangkok but it was a while ago. it may have been cambodia and not thailand at all. i'm forgetful in my old age.

for the ultimate yummy rootbeer make it a float. put vanilla ice cream in a glass and then pour the rootbeer over it. it's delicious.

I used to eat/drink a lot of ice cream floats when I was a teenager. I haven't had it for ages though I suggested it to my daughter recently. I feel an ice cream float coming my way soon. I've never tried it with root beer, though. I'll give it  try next time I see root beer for sale.
