Rooting for Root Beer



I used to love pop, soft drinks, soda or whatever you call it.  Then when I was pregnant with J, I gave that up.  I had had soda again, once in a very rare while, but it was not quite the same after having given it up for so long.  I don't love it anymore; I don't even like it.  

But then, there's root beer. I'd just discovered that they sometimes carry root beer at our local supermarket. It is pop, I know. My excuse?  I don't get to have it all the time.  I indulge in one every now and then (especially on very hot days).  We even introduced root beer floats to the kids one time and they loved it.  What's not to love? I guess what makes root beer all the more special for me is that we don't readily find it here in Hong Kong, the way we could get it pretty anywhere when we were in the US and Canada.

Do you like root beer? What's your guilty indulgence?

I love root beer, my favorite soda I'd say!

OH I love that you say it as Pop. Here in Ohio that is the norm for it instead of Soda or just commonly we say we'll have a Coke or Pepsi. I do love the memories of going to the rootbeer stand where they would put the tray of food ordered on the car window and the ordering from a speaker mike. We do still have one, but haven't gone to it in a long time. It's only open in the Summer months. :)

Your comment about giving up Pop when pregnant was same with me. Twice, that was the way I could first tell that I was because the smell if someone opened a pop around me, I was very nauseous. However, over time, I became a pop drinker again. :)

I've never tasted Root Beer. I used to drink "cool-drink", but I don't really go for it now - too fizzy. If I want something cold I would rather have a juice or a glass of white chilled wine. Enjoy the rest of your week.

Root beer is not something you find much in the UK but I have had it on my travels in the USA and I have to say I was not something I enjoyed at all

My husband is a fan of root beer. There are even stores around here that sell like 70 types of them. I didn't know Bundaberg sells root beer. We have to check in the grocery store. We love their ginger beer.

Interesting about the root beer...I can find Bundaberg brands here in New Zealand but mostly have to settle for 'sarsaparilla' as opposed to root beer. I think the root beer is a US product. Hmmmm.
