1Ltr of American Style Root Beer for 37p at ALDI.
I love root beer but find it hard to find, sometimes get AW and MUG but they tend to be expensive so I usually get the Carters brand from ASDA.
This root beer I found in ALDI today and after an hour in the fridge I had a quick slurp and found it to be quite nice.
Hope it helps some other root beer lovers!
Worth a try at 37p

Cheers. Will try one.

Haven't had root beer in many many years - McDonalds used to sell it on draught (the brown Fanta button) and it used to taste like mouthwash, without the alcohol.

Isn't Dr.Pepper a root beer?

is it sugar free?

Yes sugar free taste a bit like dandelion and burdock. Kinda medicinal like kop kops/ licorice sorta flavour.

^^ i believe it is close to zero, i got some and it tastes just like mouthwash. i like it

Yes

Is this comparable to A&W / Mug, etc? Not a fan of the Asda brand or Bundaberg

I bought this the other day, its not bad.

Just thinking now as I'm drinking it, it reminds me of Bundaberg a bit, really fizzy as well. Not quite as nice as I first thought.

Oooh i love root beer! Anyone wondering what the taste is it's like drinking sweet Germolene. Very tasty!

Thanks for letting me know. I'm sure it'll be good with some ice cream though!

Just got back from my trip to Aldi. It wasn't with the rest of the drinks in Kettering but was over in the corner by the tills.

Initial impressions are that it tastes like Carter's (ASDA) with a tiny bit more flavour but I've put some in the fridge so we'll see if that makes a difference like the OP said.

Either way at 37p a bottle, this is the cheapest in the UK and a bargain.

Lol; sorry, the wrong end of the scale; i.e. old, un-americanised and know beer as a 'British' drink!

I bought this last year. Better than carters and cheaper.

Tastes like TCP

Excellent find. Looking forward to the Grape Soda they have too!
Thank you!

not for me thanks

I have a case of "Dads" root beer on order, but if I am in Aldi I might try this, though sugar free worries me. If you live near a Chinese/Oriental super market then there is a good chance of them having the Chinese/Filipino root beer type drink called "Sarsi". I love root beer, I much prefer it to Dandelion and Burdock (Thats pretty much always sugar free these days which doesnt help ) .

About 12 years ago there was an experimental "A&W" burger/hot dog restaurant combined with a KFC at the Cineworld complex in Ashton Under Lyne, Tameside, Greater Manchester. They had unlimited refill A&W root beer, but unfortunately stubborn and unadventurous Brits were not interested in the A&W part of the restaurant or the root beer and now it is just another mediocre KFC.

Anyone know if this brand has caffeine in it?
I love root beer but a few brands have caffeine in which I am allergic to.

There were a few attempts to get American brands over here in the late 90's / early 2000's if I recall. Kraft were pushing quite a few products, but there was just no demand for it and I think now it's a case of once burned...

Unfortunately now any brands that are attempting a push are so heavily modified in recipe it is not recognisable and are genuinely rank. Kraft Mac & Cheese, Cheetos are a couple of examples.

As far as I can tell, Dunkin Donuts has closed a few stores although Taco Bell has opened up a few more, but again the menu much smaller than the US version.

It's a shame really, I'd like to have seen A&W in the UK as I really like root beer, but it's just not the time for it. The UK has gone through the faux pulled pork phase, currently in the Burger phase (which many of the new restaurants still can't get right).

I'm hoping that Dairy Queen will be next, or Grand Lux Cafe

I thought DD were expanding in the UK? Out of interest which ones have closed down? I've only been to the Leeds branch but was told there should be one opening in Manchester. (Any idea if they are all Halal like the ones in Leeds or do they operate a mix bag like KFC)?

Was reminiscing about this place recently & wondering what it is about Ashton attracting such places (like the Five Guys they now have right next to where the KFC (and old A&W) is.

I don't get why these self-serve Coke product machines (as seen in BKs / five guys) don't have room for some root beer offering. They've got all sorts of other weird flavour mixes for Coke / Fanta

Yeah, it's a shame Dunkin branches are so few and far between, their doughnuts are great. Their boss has just bought Leyton Orient football club, so maybe a few branches will appear around East London...

A few years ago DD had a few branches West - Portishead services was one of them, and I remember a few dotted around towns along the M4. No idea about Halal, and I can't see any information on the website about it.

I don't think Coca Cola brand do Root Beer, although I wouldn't complain if they brought over Mello Yello

Tastes ok, not quite as good as the American branded ones but much better than carter's.

Where abouts in Aldi do you find this, is it on the specials or with the rest of the soft drinks?

Edited by: "margamboy" 2nd Jul

I remember as a wee boy getting Sarsaparilla (same as Root Beer?).
Sarsaparilla: best as a sweet soft drink, but did you know Sarsaparilla is thought to have many medicinal properties.
I tried it not so long ago...not the Aldi one...and it is as some people describe....unusual, not quite as good as I remember it to be...and very much best served very cold !
I'll give the Aldi one a try :D...also the Grape Soda mentioned above
