Root beer is one of the few things that it’s difficult to find easily and cheaply in the UK. You can order it from Cyber Candy or get it from the branch of Sweets from Heaven in Chester. Barq’s is my preferred brand, not because it tastes particularly different from A&W or Mug, but because it has caffeine. I’d recently heard that a Chinese supermarket in town carries it, but hadn’t got around to checking it out.
So it was much to my delight to learn on Saturday that Mattas, the lovely international foods store down the street from my work, now stocks A&W root beer. This is a Very Good Thing. 😀
