    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!

    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!

    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...

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