A&W Cream Soda

Does anyone know where or how to get A&W Cream Soda in Calgary? I have a friend who is wild for the stuff and thought it might be nice to get some for her bday.

    You could also pick up Jones Soda Co. 's Cream Soda. It is clear and quite tasty.

    The old A&W stuff was golden in colour rather than clear. Jones' version has a similar flavour but again it is clear.

    The closest thing I've had to A&W is actually a pop from Peru called Inca Kola or Golden Kola. It has a similar flavour and is golden in colour. I last bought in March at the Boca Loca store at 14th ST and Northmount Dr. NW

      I wonder if your friend has tried Scweppes Cream Soda? It is hard to find (it is clear like the A & W cream soda). I have seen it at the T&T Asian market here in Edmonton at Wested Mall. It's a nice treat!

        If you can't find A&W, I think Grizzly Paw in Canmore makes a Cream Soda.

          I think it's sweet that you're trying to find a fave food item for your friend's birthday. That shows originality and thoughtfulness. I haven't seen it but you might want to try www.sodapopcentral.com which is located in/near Toronto. They carry tons of different kinds including Dads Cream Soda which I've only ever found in Montreal. I hope another Calgary CH has a better lead for you. Good luck :-)
