My boyfriend is jonesing for some sasparilla soda like there's no tomorrow. I found it once @ Whole Foods, but it's never been there since. Does anyone have any idea where we could find it?

      Sioux City Root Beer and/or Sioux City Sarsaparilla are the best and they are both available at Galco's. OMG, so good when chilled on ice for several hours but be careful because this stuff is not sugar free. Try them both, Sioux City Root Beer and the Sioux City Sarsaparilla. This stuff is really my favorate drink but I will not allow my self to have another until I loose the 40 pounds I gained two Summers ago when I began drinking it by the case after case. So go slow.....

          And you could try making your own, homebrew supply shops should be able to fix you up with the ingredients and instructions.

                      Calico Saloon, Knott's Berry Farm, Buena Park, California sells Sarsaparilla, but the bottle is labeled Sasparilla.

                        I think Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor carries it, too.
