  1. I just came back from Malaysia and Singapore where it's everywhere but don't recall seeing it out here. As far as I know, it's specifically for select Asian markets. Have you tried the usual suspects like 99 Ranch or some of the smaller ethnic stores that serve the Southeast Asian or Filipino communities?

    1. Have it at 99 Ranch. Look for "Hey Sung" or "Hey Song" brand.

      1. SARSI has been The Philippines' favorite sarsaparilla soft drink for decades and is, as mentioned, a popular export throughout Southeast Asia and the Pacific. Locally, it can be found at practically any Filipino market but, the larger chains such as Island Pacific, Seafood City and American Ranch in Cerritos stock both bottle and can versions.
