ROOT BEER!! What's your poison?

So, which rootbeers do the Foo Rats love!


For me.....Barq's. I just love the way that stuff goes down real smooth.



A very nice "I made it through this week in one piece" treat from the apartment vending machine

Yeah it's down in the building's laundromat. 75c each. Not a great value, but when limiting yourself to one a week, it's not too bad.

Go down to the a&w fast food place, and get a frosty mug and you can keep refilling it from the tap. Smooth, not too sugary, not too fizzy. Perfect

Heh. I did that for a few years. Sadly soda drinks have a bad noticeable effect on me so i eventually weaned myself off.

The only soft drink I drink is Pepsi. Usually it's water for a beverage and gatorade on my rides or when working out. Wine with good meals, Southern Comfrot & 7up/Sprite for a cocktail, Hurricanes on a hot summer day or at a party and beer if I'm bar hoppin'.

Sorry don't care much for Root Beer.

Root Beer IS poison. Tastes like toothpaste... The only root beer i could ever stomach is the stuff from A&W, but there was alternative motives for buying root beer there

Diet Dr. Pepper

It tastes just like regular Dr. Pepper, which of course means they messed up.

Actually, I go for the Cherry Vanilla variety wherever I can find it.

The Pop-Shoppe rootbeer is fairly fantastic when you can find it. Barqs works in a pinch. Hires is great and so is A&W. Funny. Up until a few years ago I couldn't stand rootbeer but I love the stuff now.
