    I don't think I have ever met a girl who likes root beer. What the hell?! I love root beer. And anytime I've gone out or somehow the drink of choice comes up, girls always go "ewww root beer?!?".

    Do you like root beer ladies? Am I wrong? Am i absolutely correct? If so, wtf is wrong with root beer?! its delicious!

    I think mercurialbliss likes root beer.

    Personally, I think it tastes like rusty bubblegum.

    Is that the drink they used to sell in McDonalds in the early 80s? Non-alcoholic, sweet and with a distinct taste of throat lozenges?

    Root beer is a beverage, most often a carbonated soft drink made from a combination of vanilla, cherry tree bark, licorice root, sarsaparilla root, sassafras root bark, nutmeg, anise, and molasses among other things.




    They don't sell it in the UK? :eek:

    :yikes:
    I think you should try it with 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream. It's called a root beer float and is quite tasty :smile:

    Since McDonalds stopped selling it in the UK in the 80s, I've never heard of it here. It tasted strange to me. We have all the other stuff here, like Coke, Pepsi, Dr Pepper, Fanta, 7UP/Sprite, Ginger Beer, Orangina. I've seen Coke Float listed on the menu in some pizza restaurants, but never had one. You can buy Ice Cream Soda in supermarkets, which seems to be vanilla fizzy water.

    Blimey! I don't think I've ever heard a bloke say that! I presume by beer, you mean lager, like Budweiser, Coors etc. In the UK, beer is completely different to lager, darker, heavier and bitter.

    With the exception of 2, it's been my experience that all the psychotic girls I've known, their drink of choice was Dr. Pepper.

    As far as root beer goes, I've never met a girl that didn't like root beer or root beer floats.

    There is only ONE root beer!!
    That's A&W. There IS no others!!
    'nuff said!!

    I don't really drink cokes (don't like most of them) but root beer is one of the few I do occasionally like. I understand why people don't (it tastes like it has toothpaste in it) but I find it much more palatable than Coca Cola, Pepsi, or anything else.

    You can get it in the UK (Scotland at least), you just have to know where to look. You can even get it here in Norway. It's just in a special section with drinks and food from other countries.

    I clicked on this thread expecting something along the lines of a guy asking yet again why women fall for assholes or flake out on you. I was pleasantly surprised to see that is not the case.

    And of course what am I drinking now, that I was drinking before I even got on here?


    Yeah, you guessed it. A damn root beer. :biggrin1:
