A&W Root Beer 70p per can @ Tesco

LocalFound 19th Feb 2013
Went into my local Tesco and they now have an American food section, similar to the Polish section they already have. They have Everlasting Gobstoppers, Lucky Charms, Lifesavers etc - but A&W Root Beer was the only item on offer for 70p per can rather than 92p.

Finally! It's about time. Sick and tired of paying over the odds for this stuff. Heat added. Thanks for the heads up.
serious ?! wooo its about time!
mmmm root beer! It's like marmite (not literally, more like tcp) you either love it or hate it.
Mmm, not a particularly great price for a can still, but you can't get this stuff anywhere, so yeah, its great! love Root Beer, you can't find it anywhere in this country!!!

Works out 68p per can on Amazon if you buy a 12-pack. I posted it here a few weeks back but morons voted it cold, even though it's the cheapest it's ever been there! X)

65p is about the price you pay for a single can of coke in Asda/Tesco. So a few pennies extra for something imported and almost impossible to find in a majority of shops sounds pretty damn good to me.

It tastes like Germoline.
Bargain good to see this range in store and at 68p on amazon great:) but tesco is good if you just want a couple of cans ,i am so used to paying over the odds and could never understand why ASDA ( who are walmart ) do not have a big range ??? guess yankee doodle candy will be missing some of my business Heat added

speak to tesco on facebook they can check if your local store got any instock
Awesome price for nicest Root beer available, believe it or not we don't have a Tesco nearby. Worth swerving into one though to get some. May I recommend adding vanilla ice cream for the perfect root beer float x
Good to see a root beer other than carters. But A&W is not as nice as IBC from the bottle. When Tesco sell IBC I will be happy.

This was in a Tesco Metro, not even a normal sized store, let alone an extra. I'm surprised others are having difficulty finding these.
None at the Chester-le -street store
Root Beer tastes like the SMELL of germoline , not the taste .
you can buy it in ASDA it's made by Carters and comes in a 6 pack costing £1.65 = about 28p per can and it's been there for about the last 5 years or so
