    I know about cybercandy, but to be honest add their delivery charges and you're paying a bloomin fortune per can..

    anyone know of anywhere? preferably along the M4 Corridor (from Carmarthen to London)....yes I will drive miles to stock up.

    Rep:
    I'd also like to know this! Doesn't have to be A&W.. could be Barqs etc.

    Rep:
    Waitrose for sure.
    Always have it in our staff shopping area, clearly not too popular with our customers so get yourselves down here for it!

    Rep:
    Yeah ditto to Waitrose, Bundaberg (it's Aussie I think).

    According to my Brother, who actually drinks the stuff, it's really good. He prefers it to A&W. I found A&W in a newsagents once which sold imported cans without too much of a premium, so maybe have a look round your area.

    Here's a link to Ocado which should hopefully work...

    My shop, House of Fraser stocks it. We also have Lucky Charms, Hersheys, a whole selection of American goodness.

    If you're going anywhere near Milton Keynes, then try the shopping centre there, they've got a shop that specialises in American foods (can't remember the name now, think it's something to do with Giraffes?) and they might have some.

    Thank you for this thread!

    Bundaberg is good but it is not true root beer! Im on the hunt for root beer, if you email the mcdonalds service team about trying to get it back in the shops they will tally up all the requests and if there are enough people asking for it they are going to reintroduce it!

    Ill be down there all day!

    Rep:
    Root beer! :coma:

    I love that stuff, recently tried it in the US and omg, now I'm torn between root beer and mountain dew. I got through so many bottles of both

    Rep:
    There's a little shop in Stevenage (not much help for you sadly) that has them, as well as Mountain Dew for about 50p a can

    Dunno if you're interested but I found carter's root beer in Asda today. It's sooooooo good :coma:

    £1.30ish for a 6 pack.

    Rep:
    Have you tried www.yankeesoda.co.uk they are the cheapest about at the moment!

    Rep:
    I love the A&W Root Beer as does my girlfriend, but she live sin the US so its always there as and when she wants it.
    The best i can find is Carters in asda, £1.27 or £1.37 i forget which.
    Im missing so much of america's ''favs'' if you will.

    pink lemonade,strawb lemonade,root beer, kool aid.

    Rep:
    Ooh, I'm definitely interested if I can get it in an actual shop rather than expensively online.

    I'll be trying Asda when I get back to England, and if not, I shall hunt for a Waitrose. I think Waitrose is only in posh southern places, but maybe there are more...

    Rep:
    Waitrose, but it is very expensive. Waitrose also sell a damn good fermented ginger beer which comes in packs of four.
