I've never had a sarsaparilla but I'm not so sure that it isn't the same thing as root beer.

Sarsaparilla is like a root beer with a hint of licorice flavor. I think I've only had it at Renaissance fairs

Sasparilla is an herb used in the making of root beer but it can also be brewed like tea, which will have the distinctive root beer taste.

I like a root beer occasionally, usually either locally bottled or from a small batch crafter. It might be a tad expensive but Virgils is worth it for the taste. And I can get it at Price Chopper. Shy

If I were going to treat myself, maybe some obscure brand of cream soda or something.

You might want to try San Pellegrino fruit sodas.

IBC Cream Soda is a treat.

What brands are you referring to? I love cream soda.

Soda is a poison. I lost 23 pounds in two months quitting soda. I feel great and my blood pressure is like a baby again. I only drink water right now.

I pretty much dropped all soft drinks a while ago, and all I got was an increased desire for Coke and Woodroofe lemonade.

RE: Soda = worst thing ever?
It seems that many people dramatize the effects of certain foods or food ingredients nowadays, with gluten as one popular example. Maybe that's because they think they won't get the attention they want if they don't exaggerate, or because they want to sell their books.

It's the same with soda like with any other sweet or fatty food: Simply keep in mind that you shouldn't drink too much of it. It is the dose that makes the poison, and in that sense soda is as much a poison as chocolate is Wink One glass every few days won't have any ill effects on you if you're healthy.

Your post is bullshit in a way. The truth is that most people this days drink soda everyday and not every few days. Soda is very addictive and a big amount of people this days suffer from this addiction. You are right that drinking a glass of soda every few days will not affect your health. Consuming too much sugar with soda or any form of candy is bad for our health. Believe it or not ,drinking a glass of soda everyday = 15 pounds of weight gain every year in adults over 30. Obesity is a very common problem in United States.
